If I had $10,000 to spend on gear what would you think I should get. The bands I like are Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Testament, Metallica, Metal Church, Slayer, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and pretty much anything.

If you have 10,000 bucks to spend on just gear...you better have your life in order! lol Move out, get a nice car, get some kick ass big boy toys (dirtbikes, quads, big screen TV, 7.1 home theater system, gas powered RC cars, paintball guns, a speed boat, snowboards, wakeboards, ...a fucking TREE FORT)...and THEN get the 10,000 dollars worth of gear!

lol thats what Id do at least!

lol no prob. but thanks!

I love my Strat..no doubt about that. But Im kind of getting tired of teh HotRails. Like, I really liked it with my Marshall because its a mid-based pickup paired with a mid-based amp and it sounded sweet. Got a really smooth, heavy, rock-n-roll crunch out of that set up. But now that I have my Mesa...the HotRails arent doin it for me. They lack bass and treble and have way too much output. Everything gets mooshy while doing high gain rythem stuff and they lack 'chunk' when palm muting open drop D chords. Theyre great for amps like my JCM900 and stuff. But they dont pair well amps like my Triple. Also since theyre in a Strat, which have a thinner sound, the sound lacks body and depth.

lol I could go on...but Im hungry..

I think you overestimate 10,000 bucks...
Epiphone Les Paul Studio

^ agreed.

Amp/guitar for up to 4000$. then spend 4000 on recording gear, cables, accesories, efffects, etc.

then 2000$ for the "band fund" so you're band has something to spend money if need be.

Then you guys start recording, make a pop punk album for selloutitude, (emo or metalcore will work too) You'll make back that 10K in the blink of an eye.

Be warned, the metal community and anyone who knows anything about music will hate you.

WHATTT!!!!!!! bad priorities! spend 2000 on a guitar, 4000 on an amp, and 4000 on a van to lug the **** around with. dont' spend it on anything that improves your overall life! live the dream, enjoy the fantasy, your only young once, you can have a gas powered RC car later.

$10,000? Save it. Invest some, use SOME for gear and use the rest on school and your first apartment when you finish school. If you were my kid and spent all of that money on gear I'd smack you.

lol I know. I was trying to say that if you had $10,000 to spend on just gear then, in the situations Im thinking of at least, you either are rich to start off with...or have been saving since you were 3 and you still live at home and your like 16.

lmao bad priorities? Like I said, I was kidding. I already have around $10,000 worth of gear. When youre my age knowing your priorities is way more important than 'living the dream'. IMO...

I'd get a Gibson Explorer, narural finish w/ Gold hardware...A Peavey 6505+ FullStack for distortion, 2 Fender Twin Reverb amps for cleans, a Freeport wireless, all monster cables for my cabs, effects, wireless and whatnot, and any effects i wanted. And I'd save whatever was left.
#24
i guess you want something along the lines of a mesa for testament/metallica, and something more marshally for vai/satch etc.

guitar wise, a super strat, and maybe something more vintage for black sabbath and maiden.

maybe an OD pedal for solo boosts, and a delay pedal? and a wah and chorus. that's what I'd get.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

if i had 10 grand, id get a car. then guitar gear. actually, bass gear. id buy a 8x10 cab, put a 1000 watt power head to it, then my carvin would feed it. so i would have a 8x10, a 4x10, and a 1x18. yea, id have alot of bass. i think it would keep up with my JSX.

WTF does SP stand for anyway?

Erm, I'd spend 1.2K on a rig.

Boss GT-8 (300-450)
Agile AL-3100 MOP White Gold Black Config (370)
112 Keyboard Amp (Roland KC-350, 400)

Versatility, gig capable, good for recording, good for practicing, good for anything.

Downside: It's not a $10,000 rig, and your tone won't be something to die for, but it'll be pretty damn nice.

Then you can buy a plane ticket to NYC and buy an assload of hookers and drugs.
