at the moment a Marshall MG15DX but for my birthday in april ill prob get a Vox AD100VT
#6
cool, that should be perfect for the sound u wunt, and down the line maybe getting a pickup change wouldnt be a bad idea either

its all personal preference, but sometimes the stock pickups can be kind of weak and you can def get the tone ur looking for from different pickups, but the stock pickups should be fine

yeh well the only problem is i would have to get the guitar ordered in and i dont no if u can try before u buy after he has ordered it in
#10
my best advice then would be to atleast try some guitars at the shop that would be most like the guitar u wunt and the amp u might be getting, i have the same prob wit ordering cause im left handed and nobody stocks any decent left handed guitars around here

why, wat would be wrong with the standard pickups?


Nothing don't listen to em

I've learned that as a non-guitar expert.. you can hear differences but they all sound pretty decent. Use your ears and if it sounds good use em. Remember the skills + amp make up 90% of the sound

Get a valve amp instead of that 100 watt Vox, and then look at any Fender Strat, look for some Japanese ones if you can (they're q rare, but are around)
Basically try any Strat you can.

i wouldnt be able to aford a valve amp man they cost to much, plus a vox aparently emulates a vavle amp

nah, man. you can afford a valve from the cost of that vox. 40w valve is about equivalent to 100w solid state

i'm sure you can afford a 40w valve with your money.


What kind of bullsh*t is that? A 40W valve/tube amp has a MUCH different (read: better) tone than any 100W solid state amp. AND the watts doesn't define the sound quality it tells you how the amp will react on high volumes. The more watt the better it will be on high volumes, mostly.

If you want a new guitar, go get a new, good guitar. Not a decent guitar and a decent amp. That's crap. It's better to get THE guitar first and a good amp after.

I was talking about how they measure up in terms of volume, not sound quality.

Why is that better? I'd rather have a good amp, with an okay guitar, and upgrade guitar later on. It's all personal preference, btu most people are gonna argue that an amp will have more effect on your sound than a guitar.
I listen to music and I don't need your opinions about what I listen to.
