So I'm thinking of buying my second guitar, and I've already tried the model V-200 from Ltd.. It had a great tone, imo it's ****ing beautiful and I've adapted pretty rappidly to it..

As I play mostly Metal, I'd like to know what do you think about this guitar? In the store I went, it costed 500 €.. In this price range, is there anything that you recommend more that the Ltd I've tried? (it just has to be a Flying-V, as I'm more comfortable with these while playing on foot)

Also, I'm using the (rather shitty, imo) amp that came with my current ESP M-10, the ESP 10.. Along with buying a new guitar, should I also upgrade my amp?

If your ganna get a new guitar get the v-401. It has everything about the v-200 you like but even better.

Yeah, I'm considering buying the Ltd-401, as it is like an upgraded version of the -200..

Also, what amp do you recommend buying? Is there any label in particular that makes goods amps for Metal? I heard that the Line 6 ones were good..

Yes, Line 6 amps are very good. Especially their Spider Series. Loads better than those Vetta pieces of crap. Plus, they have this Insane channel that'll make you wonder why you'd ever need to buy a new amp again. Seriously, go get one now. Get a Full Stack one if you can.

Spiders sound so digital tho they aint good either when you can find some beasts out there.
Whats your budget on the amp would be a start tho. but stay away fro L6 gear it tends to sound digital and not be great ( i know from practicing on a LowDown with a Pbass and a spider III with my mates Epi Sg )

Situacao, ^this man is just letting us know how shitty he feels about himself. I do apologize, i hope he gets the attention he craves.


To answer your amp question, the line 6 spider series are generally regarded pretty low around here, they have a mid section that VERY hard to get rid of and sound very "digital".

They might be appealing to a beginner, because of all the presets, but do not be fooled, you can get more versitile and better sounding amps for the money.


I reccomended a Roland Cube, or Peavy vypyr, both are excellent choices.

#13

I've seen some videos of the amps you stated, and the Peavey Vypyr really blew my mind.. There's enormous diversity and, since it's all customizable, I may spend more time playing with the effects than actually playing
#15
yes the vypyr is an excellent amp man, look on youtube for tones and stuff. I love mine
