My mom wants to take me to the Las Vegas Guitar Center for my birthday! And I don't know what to get but I'm pumped! So I'd like to hear some suggestions from UG. Anything at all... I'll list what I got...

Schecter Tempest Custom W/ upgrd pups
Schecter C-1 Classic
91 made in mexico strat
a cg-40 classical guitar
and a line 6 flextone 2 60 watt amp

I may want a acoustic guitar, but I was gonna trade one of my electrics for one for a while. just to try one.

I kinda want some recording stuff perhaps.

Anyone know anything good? Maybe I should just get something on craigslist and get more for my money

btw I play like 80's rock and stuff like that. Scorpions, Bon jovi, lynyrd skynyrd, deff leppard
My stuff Schecter C-1 Classic Trans Blue Schecter Tempest Custom w/ duncan distortion humbuckers
'91 Stratocaster, MIM....

If that's the music you like, I can't imagine better pickups than the Dunc Distortion. Screaming, compressed singing leads, crispy attack, warm with undistorted clean sound- gosh, don't change THAT pickup. If u try a JB or Custom , the woodier mids will trade away the power in your power chords. Just my opinion.., if you are positive you got the Sh6 Distortion. Does it have the logo or does it say dunc designed? Stock or you put it in? Very curious to know...

They're upgraded. I still have the originals which are duncan designed. The upgraded one's are Seymour Duncan (not Duncan designed) distortion humbuckers

Get a JCM800 combo, maybe a JCM900. That's what all the '80s guys used (of course, they hot rodded the living shit out of them). That and Mesa Mark series amps. usually the MkIII.
Current Gear:
LTD MH-400 with Gotoh GE1996T (EMG 85/60)
PRS SE Custom 24 (Suhr SSH+/SSV)
Ibanez RG3120 Prestige (Dimarzio Titans)
Squier Vintage Modified 70s Jazz V
Audient iD22 interface
Peavey Revalver 4, UAD Friedman BE100/DS40
Adam S3A monitors

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Do NOT get that marshall shalf stack, its MG and well....the MG series sucks. You can do so much better for 325.

Again, just dropping in to say I was in that exact store a couple months ago. Their selection didn't seem that great in terms of what I like playing, just a lot of Gibson, Fender, Schecter and PRS. There were like 4 ESPs there, the best one being an EC-401.

And yeah, DO NOT get that MG. They are seriously some of the worst amps I've ever played.

If your checking out guitars, try a Gibson Flying V or Explorer. Acoustic wise, I love the sound of Gibson acoustics personally, but my advice is dont get an all mahogany acoustic. My dads guilt is all mahogany, and it sounds a little muddy, IMO.

jesus christ, no wonder the MG manages to sell, lures so many kids in.

schecter c-1 is nice.

Thank you it's trans blue got it for 300 , and I wasn't gonna buy the MG without running it past the guys here at UG. I'm not a stupid little kid haha. Didn't even look anything up about it yet

so the selection is mediocre? I've never been there I just figured it'd be a LAS VEGAS style store with huge selection. If it's just another guitar store I'd rather just go with Craigslist and save myself 4 hours of driving

p.s. Marshall MG series sucks. Sorry to be unoriginal and cynical, but for obvious reasons, it needs to be said... OFTEN. Going onstage with those is like wearing a wig, a pleather jacket, and a dildo.

What's the difference between the Las Vegas GC and any other GC? Do they have feather-clad strippers or something

more than likely bigger and more extravagant.

also, more celebrities would probably go there.


"Oh yeah! did you hear? Slash will be at Guitar center!"

"oh really dude? which one?"

"the one in bum-**** no where! cause thats the way to get publicity!"

No wonder famous people never come to Guitar Center in Charlotte

We just massive numbers of hipsters and little poser metal kids.

exactly my thoughts bro, i dont thing there has ever been one in Marrietta GA (my closest one). i assume there is one in atlanta? that one probably has a better chance, even though i think Marrietta is like 20 minutes from atlanta


don't quote me on that one..

Hey, it's your birthday. I'd just go up in that bitch and accidentally the whole guitar center.




But seriously, get a new amp. And there's no reason why you can't get more than one thing. Raid their used section (it's probably massive). An amp should definitely be priority though. Because you know what's better than one kick ass amp? Two kick ass amps.

Whoever recommended the JCM800/900 combo is right on. I'd start there.
