So I just got my bonus, And I'm stationed pretty far from home right now....

Anyways i'm looking to spend up to 1500 for a new guitar set-up. I was looking at the Gibson Silverburst. Then a buddy mentioned a hellraiser solo6.

Of course its all going to come down to me actually playing them at the store for the final decision, but any help would help.....

I also need a new Amp, I've been pretty fond of the Vox amps but I'm wouldntmmind straying away from them for now.

Any help would be appreciated. I kinda want a Tool/ or Chevelle type of sound.

THANK YOU

and then there's free jazz, which isn't even for musicians.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.

If the $1500 is for a guitar and amp, you won't be able to get a good amp with the Gibson. If what you want is a Les Paul shape, I recommend the second guitar on this page: http://espguitars.com/guitars_ec.html

or the third one on this page (same specs except it looks shinier):

I second this. The EC-401 will give you more $$ to spend on a good amp. Maybe a Bugera or a cheap used MESA if you get lucky.

$1500 for guitar and amp? If so then whats your split for guitar and for amp? I'd recommend spending something like 700-800 on an amp and the rest on your guitar.

For the guitar just a few questions will help others find the guitar.

What type of bridge do you want?
What type of neck joint do you want?
What pickup layout?
What type of pickups?
What woods?
How many frets?
Anything else?
