Here's his rig. We play deathcore (Whitechapel, etc.)

Fender Squier Strat
Schecter Synyster Custom w/ FR

Line 6 Pod XT Live

Line 6 Spider III 120w 212.

What should he get?

New amp. Please.

Budget, location, does he gig?

NEW AMP!
and then new pups for the strat

$400 is a bit low for a amp, look into the peavey bandit, that plus the pod xt should give you some awesome effects with plenty of power, and the bandit is very pedal friendly

Are you guys willing to buy used? I know Nashville has a great Craigslist selection. Plus, new at that price won't get you much decent stuff (maybe a B-52 if you're lucky) or unless you're willing to save and wait for the 6505 112 combo.

A whole new rig.

Spider IIIs suck, but if you play deathcore, I'm guessing your sound is caked in distortion so it doesn't matter as much.

He can sell the squire, he doesn't need it really.

I like schecters usually but never tried a signature so I'm not about about that.

Maybe he could get rid of the amp and Pod and just get a good amp?

Yeah, i told him that he really just needs a whole new setup, but he wants to go one piece at a time. I really want him to get on here and talk to you guys rather than have me do it.

TBH his gear isnt AWFUL. But for gigging a new amp would be preferable. For 400 I'd suggest a B-52 at100 would be the best new.
