Ok, here's the story. I'm going to go to the guitar store this afternoon to return my guitar (Ibanez RG120) and amp (Line 6 Spider III 15-watt).
I'm returning the guitar because I want to try out another Ibanez that has jumbo frets and is around the same price range ($200). I'm returning the amp too because although I liked the amp models it gives me, it's way too heavy to lug to and from school by foot, and it's too big to fit in my locker.

So I need recommendations for an electric guitar that is good for metal, has 24 jumbo frets (I have huge fingers), and is around $200, and a practice amp that is great for metal AND clean and is relatively small but still packs a decent tone.

Oh, and if you recom a Roland Cube, which I'm expecting, recom me a good metal effects pedal to go with it that's around $50-100. Thanks!

Yeah, they don't arrest/ticket hobos because they can't pay the fines. Then they hang out in the jail all day eating free food. There's no point.

I hope he gets a blood disease and dies alone and screaming.


I mean that in the nicest way possible of course.

roland cube - nor effects - no point putting effects through a modelling amp - it'll just make them want to die. some sort of cheap lp copy maybe a good bet - nice cleans etc. maybe a dean vendetta?
The only 6 words that can make you a better guitarist:

Distortion/effects pedals + modelling amps = bad.

Line 6 makes a Spider micro now that, from what I've read, is better than the roland. It's pretty compact, has a handle, and a couple of channels.

LOOK, I COME BEARING LINKS!!!

Have fun lookin XD
