i'm looking to upgrade from my beginner electric, to a better one for my bday. One thats preferably good for metal yet cheap. Which one would suit me better out of those to options?
Im also planning on buying a Peavy Rage 258 25w amp and a Digitech Grunge pedal with whatever guitar i decide to choose (:
P.S. does this set up sound good? im not planning on playing at gigs or any large areas either. Just bedroom practice.

If you give us a budget, location, music preferences, used or new, we can help you find something perfect. Since you are just starting out look for a modeling amp like I said in you other thread. Don't bother with pedals at the moment since the cube or whatever modeling amp you get will take care of the effects. As for those 2 guitars stay away from the low end Deans. I had an MLX and it was garbage even for a beginner. The ltd 10 series isn't anything to special as well.

Go to Guitar Center's used section and type in roland cube. They have them going from 80$-200$. So jump on one. As for the guitar let's pretend you got the 80$ used cube, that leaves just under 250$. They have a Schecter S1+ for 200$ (item #: 110821033). You can have a look your self as I've come across some great deals there.

I found some Roland cube 15w's for $79.00 and one Roland cube 30w $79.99
Considering my birthday isn't until next month I'm not even sure if the 30w will still be available lol. Would a 15 still be good if somehow I can't get a 30w? How could us guitar center with keeping multiple used items in stock for a period of time? Same for the Schecter S1+.
I can get one for $249 used but I'm not sure if there's only one available or multiple lol. Do you have any experience with this? I haven't used guitar center in the past.

And the only option available for the Schecter is find in store :/ and the only store that appears is in CA. even when I enter my zip code..

I've heard good things about the Yamaha Pacifica 112v. I could maybe get one of those for $299 and a Roland cube amp 15 or 30w.

Just get on Craigslist, I've seen things like an Esp Ltd EC-1000 with Floyd Rose for 350 bucks. And dude, you're playing in your bedroom, a 15 watt would be perfectly fine...

Just call the store and they can ship the items to you. Also don't worry too much about the watts on the amp, you're don't need that much since you're just playing in your room.
