So,i've been putting a few annoying threads about a new guitar and amp lately,and i wanna make this one the last:

Ive got about 1850$ for the guitar and amp together plus what ill get for my current one.
Spec-wise:
Guitar:22 or 24 frets,no strats please(just cant get myself to play them),fixed bridge only-no tremolo(locking or non locking),id like it to not be a bolt on,but its not a necessity. I need it to be versatile with preferably an HH pickup combo.
Amp:Two footswitchable channels, not too loud-good for home playingand in a band situation.Effects loop prefered but not an absolute need.Id really like nice cleans and distorted sounds.

I play all kinds of rock,from lower gain stuff to metal,so id like it to be as versatile as possible.

I was thinking about getting a Carvin,but id probably lack the money for a good amp if i go that way.

So EG,
Please assist me.

I think you should look at Schecter Guitars. Something like the C1-Standard (mahogony, set neck, 24 frets, SD Custom in the bridge, and a 59' in the neck). And for the amp, i say the Peavey 6505 2x12 combo(2 chanels, footswitchable, plenty of gain, looks cool). I hope this helps I've played the guitar and the amp, sounds great.


EDIT: Forgot to mention, the guiar is $700 and the amp is $1,200 USD
Schecter Blackjack SLS C-1 Active
Schecter Damien w/ Seymour Duncan Distortions
Peavey 6505+ 112
Blackstar HT-1RC
Visual Sound Double Trouble
Line 6 M-5

Some kind of schecter hellraiser c-1 for the guitar.


Only go with the hellraiser if you want active pickups. i dont know if thats your cup of tea or not exactly.

Jackson SLS3 Soloist: ($1150)
24 frets, mahogany body and I think it's a mahogany neck too, TOM bridge w/ string thru, SD 59's in both bridge and neck, and it's neck through with amazing access to the higher frets.

Peavey Classic 30: ($600)
Alone it can handle cleans all the way up to hard rock tones, requires a nice distortion pedal if you want to venture into hi gain metal.

That's just my opinion though.

^^ I agree that the TS should spend more of his budget on a guitar than an amp. A $1200 amp is pretty well pro-level but a $700 Guitar (new) isn't. I for the life of me can't figure out why some people put all their money into a really nice amp (usually much more than need)and then play a mediocre or even poor guitar thru it!
Moving on.....

I second the Peavey 6505 Combo. How does a Gibson SG Standard sound?
Epi Elitist LP Plus
Marshall Class 5
Vox AC30 CC2

It's even worse here than on car forums where somebody says "I got $XXXX to spend on mods what should I get?" and everybody replies "tires, brakes, and suspension"....

Alright,taking all this into account, id like you to tell me what do you think abou this:
A Bugera V22 and some sort of pedal to handle higher gain.
The rest will go to a guitar.
For a guitar im thinking maybe the white SG standard they sell in guitar center,that has push/pull option on the knobs for coil split,although i dont know how will they sound through a mahagony bodied guitar.
Thoughts?

That's a great idea, the Bugera is a knockoff of the Peavey I mentioned, but it's just as good.

I also think coil splits on an SG would be fun :P. They're really convenient if you like to have a mix of tones. I can't imagine them sounding bad on a mahogany body versus an alder body. Try it out and see what you like.
