It is VERY BAD!!
I need a better guitar first.. :S
#11
Most people will probably tell you to upgrade your amp. So will I. Then get a guitar. But if you are happy with your sound from the amp then you can get a new guitar. Do you want exotic shapes or a 'normal' shape. Do you mind other brands or do you want those specific ones. what is your price range. im guessing its around $600

The BC Rich combined with your current amp will create the most awful tone known to man. Actually, any guitar on the list will sound bad if it's played through your current amp. Buy a new amp first. *coughrolandcubecough*

Okay I understand you but still I live with my family and they already think it is too loud and dont let me get a bigger/better amp... And I may of course think about different guitars but I live in Turkey and there arent really much OTHEr to choose from..
And I dont know how much they cost for you but here these guitars are about 1000 dollars..
I cant believe that they cost 600 dollars at yours...
God I will live this country too..
S***ty place..:@
#15
well you dont know what the exchange rate's like. maybe $600 for us is the same as $1000 in turkey.

Only buy guitars that have had their wood harvested from the north side of the tree, during the summer solstice, by virgin druids suffering from dwarfism. Next stupid question, please.
#16
Yes but we dont earn that much money too...
For example school teachers earn about 300 dollars a month..
My family has quite money but Turkey definetely doesnt..
#17
well, since you're in Turkey, get the BC Rich

because as we all know, in communist turkey, BC Rich suck you... or something
#18
Do you want exotic shapes or a 'normal' shape. Do you mind other brands or do you want those specific ones. If it is then i would get an Ibanez SZ. Ive got it. it sounds great through the cube. The cleans sound like its an acoustic and it can hit some heavy tones. and i find it looks damn sexy. BUT MOST OF YOUR TONE COMES FROM YOUR AMP so if you have a ****ty amp with the greatest guitar it wont sound too good. if you have the best amp with a ****ty guitar it will sound better. Sell your MG. get cash buy a roland cube and then you will see some great cleans and some great distortion

'Bigger/better' amps don't mean they are louder, granted higher watts will let you go higher, but generally better amps mean better tone... the guitar and the pups only play a small part in that role.

And as far as metal goes you can get away with any of those in your selection, they will all sound very similar.

you could get like a 30 watt amp and then get a distortion pedal, if you want heavy tone, and as far as a guitar, it depends on what year BC Rich, but if its a new one, don't get a Warlock Bronze.

Than what do you suggest as a good tone SMALL (I of course dont mean 10 watts but it mustnt be more than 40 watts) amp?
#25
Also behringers? Fender? Randall? Crate?????
Someone please give opinion for all...
How are they?

NOT Behringers, they suck. Fender Tubes are awesome, but probably too expensive, Randall's are decent and Crates aren't great. Rolands and VOX are nice. So are some Traynors if you've got the money for them.

Edit: Oh, and for guitars, I seriously suggest checking out Schecter. Those guitar are awesome.

What I would choose.1st-one of the jacksons, 2nd-one of the LTD's and I would not get the warlock since warlocks suck.
#29
i have a schecter C-1 Elite, it is very good, 550 USD, idk what it'd be in turkey, it is good for almost anything, has duncan designed pu's, and coil splitting, which means it can do almost anythingl looks great too, i have a randall amp, it soudns good through it

Get a Roland Cube... 30 watter (more if u can afford it). Then buy an Ibanez guitar (not the SA series).


Why not the SA series? I'm getting my SA260FM next week and its a good guitar
