Hey all!

First time i've been able to do this on here, and i've been on UG since 2004! hah too long!

anyways, finally settled on an ESP EC-1000. Was originally hoping to go with the Schecter Hollywood Classic, but just didn't feel write playing it. Played prolly 30 different guitars before coming on this one. Not 100% sold on the colour yet, but I can deal. My other guitars are a Pacifica and an MH-50, so clearly needed an upgrade! haha next up, prolly new amp... any suggestions??? hah play mostly harder stuff, loads of gain, sorta 80s metally rock sound? thanks!

HAH sorry, been here 5 years, still no effing clue how to properly post a pic :P I'm a guitar player, not a programmer...sue me haha

Happy NGD!

Because I bend in such an unorthodox fashion; the notes kinda slide up and slide down...
Nice! The blue/purple ones look so sick.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

omfg hngd!

great color..it will look awsome on stage
thanks again for all the props, needless to say, still grinning from ear to ear over the purchase. not sure bout the budget for amp, though it prolly won't be for a little bit anyways. I have a brutal marshall combo one now, (hgfx 100 or something....i know... shame.... :P haha). With the amp though, ill definitely be looking used, but wouldn't be against new either. Prolly around the same though, maybe little less.... I'd say bout $1,000 Canadian, so about maybe $800 American would be pushing it, but I'm sort of expecting that I'll have to pay to get quality!
