hey, im going to my bud's barmitzvah on saturday, and as far as his interests go, all i know is that he plays guitar, so i figured guitar gear would be a good gift. with maybe $30-40 to spend, i cant decide what to get him. i was going to get a danelectro pedal, possibly the EQ, but they dont have the danelectros at my gc anymore and i dont have time to order one online. so does anyone have any suggestions on what to get? should i just get picks and strings and stuff? he's probably gonna get a JSX 212 from his parents, so yeah...

Cleaning guitars is for pussies.



Jk man. I baby my Strat like it's a kid. It's weird, because I never care about dropping it, I love how scratches look on it, I love how the strings have started to wear down the neck at the body (I play SRV style... really ****ing hard).

But god forbid I ever see fingerprints on it

And I second the Bad Monkey.

just get on cragislist and see what deal you can get for a pedal.

BBE sonic screamer or some sort of OD.

Hell or some digitech multieffects pedal.

some old DOD modulation unit on ebay.

I've heard good things about this.. plus its true bypass and made of metal. Might as well give it a go.

Look for a used Bad Monkey on Craigslist, or like Kevin Saale said, just a 35$ GC giftvard.

gift card. iono i think strings and picks and string cleaner stuff are the best cheap gifts for any guitarist. or if he needs a strap, buy that.
