Those are my three main influences. I need to be able to get as heavy as Mastodon, and I play some blues too. Amp will be a Fender Hot Rod with big muff/some overdrive I haven't decided on yet. Gn'R era Slash, and Dead Weather/White Stripes stuff for Jack White.

I have a grand, USD, for the guitar, and I will be gigging, recording, and playing the hell out of it until I can afford a Gibson ES-137 (I want two guitars though, so this will be my other one, don't tell me just to save for the ES).

I was thinking an SG Standard, or like a Japanese Paul. Anything else you can think of? Gretsch's look pretty cool. Thanks people.
