Are there any brands of guitar you prefer?

As for an amp, AX7 recorded most of their stuff using Marshall JVm's, although Zacky Vengeance is now touring using the Jet City JCA100H.

I picked up a JCA50H about a month ago pretty much just for the distorted channel. It can get pretty heavy. The cleans are pretty good, but nowhere near a fender.


Thats just my 2 cents.

I hear they use false bypass switches.

It's, like, so ironic.

Used Ibanez RG or S series have great guitars with good trems. You can check some schecters guitars too.

You could find used Ibanez prestige or premieum for under 700$.

just get a fender amp then. it won't be the distorted sounds you want but if you want to use pedals for it and can live with the fact that pedal gain is not the same as amp gain, then you'll be happy with it. something like a hot rod

Fender MexiStrat
Epiphone Sheritan

The 25th Anniv. RG will do you fine. Hod Rod Deluxe would be a very good option. You could use that with your GT-8 and it takes pedals tremendously well. Used HRD's go for 300-400 on CL. I saw a super-sexy red and black one in GC the other day and was kinda tempted, but I don't need it.

Unless you want to go crazy and get a used JSX combo. I got one for exactly the same reasons: versatility from jazz through metal. It, too, takes pedals very well. I got an Ibanez RG1570 Prestige for about $800. Between the JSX, the RG, and one OD pedal I think I could do any style of music very well.
