so long story short, my girlfriend feels she should "get even" gift wise, and she feels she needs to get me something awesome for christmas to make up for the gifts i've gotten her

i would like to use this oppurtunity to try to improve my gear as much as possible, but if only very slight improvements are possible i'll just ask for a decent digital camera from her

her budget is like 200-500 US dollars as i recall

so based off my sig, what should i improve?

i have a POD xt live in the fx loop of my amp, which i use for fx, and while yes not absolutely kickass, i plan on saving up for an axe fx, so i don't want to ask her for something that expensive

so should i:

1: improve a guitar somehow
2: get a pedal
3: something else?

thanks for any suggestions

Maybe you'd like some effects that traditionally go in front of your amp, like a nice wah or OD. Chorus, flanger, delay, etc is probably fine on your pod for now.

Don't know, man. If you feel you're not missing anything, you probably don't need anything... and your rig seems pretty sweet as it is. However, if it was ME, I'd go crazy and look for kick-ass, second-hand guitars. Can't have too many of those!

i already got a nice wah, good ideas though, not sure i need a fuzz pedal or od

i was thinking maybe upgrading a guitar, maybe some bare knuckles?

EDIT: also for consideration is a decent pa or monitor to run my pod into for modeling, thoughts?

So should I just go for a decently price pa, upgrading a guitar, or just a digital camera?

Tell her she can work it off.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

You know what would melt her heart? To have her name to have her name on your guitar neck spelled by the fret inlays. Either get a luthier or buy a custom made neck for it, it would ve a gift for both of you
My gear:
  • Fender American Standard Telecaster
  • Ibanez RG450
  • Laney VC15
  • Electro Harmonix HOG
  • Vox Satchurator
  • Blackout Effectors Musket fuzz
  • Electro Harmonix Pulsar
  • Earthquaker Devices Disaster Transport
  • Malekko Chicklett

kickass idea, but my guitar already has pretty sweet inlays

About the more sentimental thing, idk at this point

Might just go for a camera cuz it would be useful for more than guitar, thanks though guys
