the guitars i have at the moment are ok but are damaged alot and sometimes they are really annoying
so im gonna hope to start saving up and in a longish time have about £300 - £500

and im interested in alot of guitars at the moment
some of them are:
Ibanez RGR420EX-SAR
Ibanez RG320PG
Ibanez MTM2
a few dean vendettas
Dean ML Phantom/Noir XT
theres alot more but those are teh main ones

i was just wondering if anyone knows if those guitars are any good?

stop buying guitars. u have too many for ur own good. and no amps for that matter (ur amps arent considered amps, sorry)

u already have decent (ish, depends on whos judging) guitars. so u should save up some more money and invest in an amp.

btw, yes, some people say u cant have too many guitars, but u really shouldnt be wasting ur money on sub-standard guitars

Looking at ur gear, get a new amp. For your own sake ur amps suck. Spend the money on a cheap tube and you'll b fine.

Im buying a new guitar soon mate, ive played a canny few, but yet the only one i feel happy with, as its comfortable to play and sounds good, is the Ibanez Sas32ex.
Ive played the Rg350dx and Rg420eg (spider), but i wasnt too happy with the feel of the neck although it is slightly, thinner than the Sas32ex, by about 1mm i think
I also tried some sort of Jackson Dinky, i was happy with the feel and the sound, but then i plugged in the Sas32ex in the same amp and straight away i thought Fk Jackson
I personally recommend the Ibanez Sas32ex even though ive only played it in the shop, but soon should own it =]
Heres a pic, looks better in real life i think

White: http://www.ibanez.com/images/finalZoom/SAS32EXWH.jpg

The one i played was black, hope this helps =D

I'm pretty sure he means the RGs rape all the other guitars. IDK. Schecters are good though.

Dude, you have an MG, get a new amp first. Any guitar is gonna be crap through an MG. Get a nice amp THEN look into a new guitar, amp > guitar 90% of the time.
#11
Oh....yeah parents can be like that. Heres what you do. SELL your marshall mg. Then use the money to buy either a peavy vyper or a Vox da5 or possibly some cheap Blackheart. All im saying is sell your amp and get something either just as or not as loud, but it will sound SOOOO much better

i'll try that

at the moment my amp is o.k as i only house practise and all that.
i heard peavey vypers are pretty awesome aswell aah what i might do is save up money around £300 or as much as i can then find an amp i like
then sell my amp, then maybe my b.c rich
then i may have enough to spend on a new amp and maybe a new guitar

right, and ur parents let u have a crappy hairdo dw, just get a tube amp and tell them its only rated 15 watts (believe me, 15 watts is loud (tube at least)) and it'll make u better (tone is god!!!! ). besides, u just need to practice more and get serious. my parents didnt like my amp (30 watts... not loud huh?) but i got it anyways. why? cos they trust me and i dont wear wierd clothing (im sorry, but i have to take the piss out of u )and regardless of what settings ur rp is on, its still gonna sound really really bad. so invest properly


i do have a crappy hair do......
but my parents where dead set against this mg for the 30 watts
so get a tube amp basically?
any good suggestions....are the peavey vyper one tubes? ( i am soooo dumb i need guitar knowledge!)

read the sticky at the start of the forum. all the info u need is there. and tell ur parents that 2x more wattage does not mean 2x louder. its only (i think) 1.25x louder. so its marginally louder. and dont, for the love of god (since ur parents are against volume) that tube wattage is 10x higher than solid state.

would it still be abit like a tube amp if you bought a tube amp modeller? or does that have to be for an actual tube amp?

no. tube amp modellers are not ok (unless its vetta or flextone, of which ur budget will not suffice). get a real (the ones with glowy glass bottles in them) tube amp. im sorry for the sarcasm. i am sleepy and first day of year 12 is tmrw... why am i still awake damn it!?!?!?!. anyways, night all.

and u TS. . . get a new hairdo and try to listen to other things other than A7X (is that how u kids say it?) and BFMV. get into some other stuff. dont get caught up in the craze of ' OMG! A7X / BFMV are the 'best metal band(s) in teh world!!'

pls. do it for me. its my birthday.. no seriously it is. im 17 today. i expect presents and ur dissociation with said bands is an awesome present

I would take your time and try a few different guitars out. Think about what is wrong with your existing guitars and try to improve on it. It could be something as simple as they just a good setup in a decent guitar shop.

he put dragonforce in the list of bands he likes. so no more advice. he deserves whatever **** he buys.

i wouldnt look at schecters if i were you... i was thinking of buying one but i asked a guy who owns some stores and he said he isnt dealing with them as they are close to going into administration. so you could get one but if they do go down (and he said they probably will and have done before) then you are ****ed if there is a prob

The nice thing about going down is that you can come back up! And Schecter makes some really good instruments, even low end ones. But TS buy an amp. Tube amp if possible, but I really would not buy a Modeler. My little bro has a Spider III 75W, yeah I am ashamed, but my Frontman isn't much better, and honest to god it just sucks the tone away. We both play through our friends half stack he left here instead. Ha ha ha.

But what is the conversion rate from GBP to USD? Cause I don't know this so I can't really give you a suggestion.
Gear:1991 Fender MIJ Jazz/Squier VM Fretless Jazz -> Pitchblack -> Way Huge Green Rhino -> Boss OC-2 -> Boss DD-7 -> Markbass Tube 800 -> SWR 4x12.

you know i have know clue

and darkhorizon
some problems with my jackson are - everythings falling apart, very very damaged and the tuning pegs are a bit dodgy at times sometimes they nearly fall off.
some problems with my bc rich - the pickups arent all that they are ok but not great, gets easily damaged, goes out of tuning so easy(or it just cant stand standard) and the input part falls off alot(annoying!!)
the problem with my fake strat - damaged alot, tremelo system is just unacceptable, goes out of tune really bad cant stand any tuning, pickups are just pure crap and the wires and all that inside burn up alot
and for my small acoustic - just one thing...too small
the good things about my guitars
jackson - love the neck and the seymour duncan pickup can give out a really awesome sound
bc rich - nice design, the neck is ok, the pickups arent the worst and its ok for fast ish playing but small necks kill this neck!
Fake strat - tremelo system and still its not even good!
acoustic - nothing i can barely play on it
