Hey UG,

Getting some new gear soon and I was wondering whether you could help me out on my decisions.

For guitar I'm stuck between a Fender Jazzmaster/Tele or an Epiphone Sheraton.

As far as amps are concerned I'm quite interested by the Fender Hot Deluxe and Marshall JCM900.

The sound I want is a reverb-drenched tone with fuzzy guitars to compliment my electronic music with hip-hop drums.

My influences: Kill Hannah, The Big Pink, The Smashing Pumpkins, Gary Numan, NIN, Marilyn Manson, The Cure, The Smiths, My Bloody Valentine, The Fauns etc.

Cheers

based on the tone you are describing and some of the artists mentioned you'll prolly want at least the marshall amp, as far as the gtr goes thats your call, but jazzmasters are really nice
Fender Strat Deluxe
Fender MexiStrat
Epiphone Sheritan
Ibanez Artcore
Fender Twin Reverb silverface

I would recommend the marshal MG100

Very versatile and quality sound. It should treat you well

The reason I thought the Hot Rod was because I'd be mostly using my Big Muff

(I just realised I forgot to mention that in OP)

well don't get me wrong i am a fender amp guy all day, but if you want that *huge* tone then thats all marshall.

if high gain isn't necessarily something you want and you'll be using pedals anyways then maybe a fender would be better, besides marshall cleans aren't like fender cleans

I'd be running guitar > reverb, delay, big muff > amp. A huge sound isn't necessary really as I'll be just doing some drones underneath the synths

Why bump? go to a guitar store and try a 900. If it's what you are after then find one used for cheap.

The only store within accessible distance contains Squier guitars and Line 6 amps. True story :/

Which JCM900? All three are quite different amps and two of them really need to be modded.

Yep, that's the one that doesn't need modding. The only one.
