Nope, you're sorted I think unless you're gonna be taking it places, in which case get a gigbag. And nice choices!
Gear:
Schecter C-1 Hellraiser
Ibanez GRG170DX
Peavey Vypyr 75
Fender Princeton 650 DSP w/ Celestion 80w speaker

Strong words of advice go and try these out at a local shop, just incase you find out down the road that your not satisfied with them. Thats your best bet, dont take everyones word in reviews.When buying a guitar its best to find some thing your satisfied with and is comfortable.

P0nx don't even play instruments. P0nx sold their instruments for booze money. And they sold their booze for heroin money.

For the tuner, get a footpedal one (theres some (pitch?)black one which im sure somebody else will know the name of) because that's what youll want in the future.

Gigbag is just taking it places, solid case if gigging with it.

Make sure to get more than one pick, try a few different thicknesses to see what you prefer (be wary of pick goblins)

Don't cheap out on the cable, a bad one really cuts down your tone, and messes with the sound.


That's all I can think of right now.

You cant go wrong with that Korg CA-30 Chromatic Tuner, ive had mine for about 8yrs or so and it still works great.

about guitar picks, sometimes you can find a bulk pack of them with different sizes and gauges. those are pretty good so you can try them out and see which one you prefer.
lost and confused,
focused on the obscured.

I would get a foot pedal one they come in handy. I have a boss chromatic one it's very nice and you'll definately want one in the future so may as well get it now. But the rest of your choices look good. Try some nylon picks too they're great.

Good choice of amp. Same one I own. But I hear that pedals don't go too well with modeling amps, unless it's a wah pedal or something
