Amp:
Late 70's Fender Twin Reverb

Guitar:
Modified Epiphone Les Paul

Effects:
EHX POG
EHX Pulsar
ProCo Rat 2
Line 6 DL4
Ernie Ball Volume
Death By Audio Fuzz War
Blackout Whetstone Phaser

Currently, this is the rig I'm working on. I can probably get some boutique pedals, as I can go spend up to $1200 on pedals. Although, I don't know much about boutique, so recommendations would be great.

I'd go for something better/more versatile than a Phase 90, maybe a Blackout Effectors Whetstone Phaser? Also, what genres are you looking to play?

You may want to get an analog delay in addition to the DL4. Maybe look into a vintage EHX Deluxe Memory Man.

As said above, i would sugest a differant phaser pedal, if you want chorus i can suggest the Analog Man chorus, but it's always better to try the item befor you buy it off youtube videos

I don't know about doom metal, but getting a Fender Twin on itself to metal isn't possible, so i suggest a heavy pedal for heavyer metal genres.

For those genre's i would suggest an ENGL is your buget can go that high, or a JCM800

the fender won't really do doom.
For post-rock, the DL4 is the best you can buy.
the death by audio is suposed to sound full and fat to.
The other pedals I have no real experience with.

i think the fender is a great choice. for doom you can just run a load of dirt pedals into it. if you get some cheesy metal amp with tons of distortion on board, the rest of your musical interests will suffer

i know a guy who does drone/sludge metal into a fender twin >.<

I strongly support this.

Because he wants it... Why shouldn't he buy stuff with his money? What else would he do with it?

You might want an overdrive as well, just to add a bit of dirt for blues and older rock. Maybe a Fulltone OCD or some kind of TS.

Effects updated. Any further comments? Also, amp-wise, I now have two more choices:

Tweed Fender Blues Deville 4x10 ($450)
Vox AC15CC1 - ($400)

Or, I could just get the '70s Twin Reverb for $550. Which should I do?

Fuzz - 60's Rock, Psychedelic Rock, Stoner Rock/Metal, Drone, Sludge, and Doom Metal.

Pulsar - For Surf and Rockabilly.

Line 6 DL4/Carbon Copy - In Surf and Rockabilly, a good echo is helpful. Delay and loopers are (IMO) needed for a good Post-Rock rig.

Volume - I prefer volume pedals over the volume knob, and I can remove any attack with it.

Rat - Main source of Distortion.

Phaser - Good for Pyschedelic Rock, Experimental music, and Post-Rock.

POG - Psych. Rock, Post Rock, Stoner Rock. Very good octave sounds.

It's actually quite small for a Post-Rock/Ambient/Shoegaze rig. .-.

so true. i think you're on the right track with everything you've picked
main rig:
MIM Tele->VP Jr.->CryBaby->Fuzz Factory->TS808->Carbon Copy->Phase 90->TU-3->Vox AC30CCH+Avatar 212 and Peavey VTM60+Marshall 1960A

This, a ProCo Rat like you have there will probably work alright, but a Fender like that and some trippy pedals will hit 75% of what you have up there perfectly.

GUITAR PEDALS FOR SALE
#26
he is about on with effects, if he knows how to use them, and it seems he does.

i would have recommended the HOG if you were going for a POG, just a bit more money with alot more bang.

if you can achieve an actual gibson instead of the moded epi i would recommend it, i love my dc les paul. but the guitar will do, i don't dislike the epi lp at all, but the gibson should be the long term goal in the end for sure.

the amp will swallow pedals and be very versatile, the 70's twin anyway. the 4x10 devile(i own the mexi one) is a bit limited though it does sound insanely good. a big drawback on the reissues(the reissues are made in mexico, the originals were made in america) is the use of linear volume knobs, this creates a problem where they are either too loud or too quiet, it needs to be moded out the box to optimize the usefulness, so buyer beware. i also needed to insert a 12at-7 in the driver tube position to mellow it to usefulness as well. i will reiterate the fender blues deville still sounds good, just has issues. ac15 may come in lacking if you play bigger bars with stage volume. verdict: i would consider the deville, try the ac15 to see if you can't go without it, but keep the 70's twin in the cross hairs. the twin likes pedals better too.

i have an ehx pulsar, the old school big enclosure one, and it is great. definitely keep that as your top choice tremolo.

I would if I could afford one. But, since I can't, I got the Semi-Hollow Epi and gave it Gibsons p-ups. Not perfect, but it'll do. Although, if I had the money, I'd probably just get an Edwards.

I think I'm going to just end up getting the TR, due to how well it take pedals.
