Alright, so before I say anything, I've been playing guitar for a little over two years now, and that entire time I've played a first act guitar.

I figure it's time to get a new guitar and amp.
This is what I'm looking into getting guitar wise.
My budgets kinda low, so if this is a good setup for now, let me know.

What would be a good amp for that guitar.

I was lookin' into getting the Line 6 Spider III, but apparently they don't have it anymore.

Id avoid a Spider. Ive never played on one, but i dont want you to get flamed here. Do you have an actual figure for a budget?
#4
what kind of music do you play?
Scar tissue that I wish you saw
Sarcastic mister know it all

Ibanez guitars beast!!!

Instead of getting a line 6 spider maybe try out the peavey vypyr? I've heard very good things about it, although it does cost a bit more than the spider.

The ibanez is good, but the spider is NOT. Try to get a peavey vypyr. Much better amp, and the 30 watt one only costs $200

Have you played this guitar yet? I noticed it has the JUMBO frets (6100's). You might want to try these first and then compare them with the 6105's (med Jumbo) and see which is more comfortable. The JUMBO's give the neck a scalloped feel. See which feels good to you.

I'm thinking about a vypyr now, but it's the 75w one.

Not entirely sure what size frets are on a first act guitar.
But I'm sure I'll get used to them.

Edit: Remember, I'm trying to find an amp with a little kick.

75 watts might be a little big, especially if you're planning to do bedroom playing for now. 30 watts should be PLENTY.

About the fret size, you'll be fine after like 5-10 minutes of playing it. Can you try it out anywhere before buying it to get used to it?

There's no such thing as a little big.
Bedroom playing or not, I wanna wake the neighbors.

well that doesnt narrow it down alot rofl.. but i PERSONALLY like the superchamp XD by fender, someone on here refered me to it and i love it now, saving my change for it. ive played out of a few peaveys and the vyper is alot of knobs and buttons that you dont really need, but it is nice to have the tonal range that you can get with it, its nice, i liked it. but what i suggest to you, and im sure everyone will agree, go to a local guitar shop, or guitar center and play every guitar in your range, and every amp that you want to buy/can afford, and make sure you play guitars out of the same amp. all i can tell you is stay away from the spiderIII(digital piece of ....) and the marshall MG series(buzzy hellish piece of ....)
