Im ready to just burn every piece of gear i own.

First of all, I noticed a new problem today.

Idk if its my guitar, or my amp.

If i turn my amp up to loud, it sounds like god damned overdrive, when it is supposed to be clean.

If I turn the volume on my guitar down, it destroys my tone.

If i turn the volume/drive on my amp down, it is too quiet. [No, the drive isnt the problem. if i turn it down too far, especially all the way, theres lack of tone and its too quiet]

Would raising or lowering my pickups help? At least until i can get new gear...

I need advice.
With enough money saved you will buy a new straw skirt and coconut bikini, a airplane ticket back to civilization and a large Mesa Boogie amp and a Gibson Explorer and shred the faces off with METALLICA!

Amps overdrive when they're loud. That's what they do. Can't really change it, you need a higher wattage amp.

Dunlop 535Q Wah, Ibanez TS-9, EHX LBM
Mesa/Boogie Express 5:25
MXR 6-band EQ, Boss NS-2, Boss PS-5, MXR Phase 90, MXR Carbon Copy

GAS: Micro POG

well a solid-state amp is your problem.
1. You're surfing the internet.
2. You're browsing through the UG forums.
3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.
7. Now you're having a lil smile.
