yeah easily, I took on one of my uncles who's suppose to be the strongest in the family and has the hottest wife. Tamed him like my bitch and then wacked off afterward thinking about his wife.

All in all, a very productive day.

This one (your older guitar) isn't a great guitar and it prevends me from developing my guitar skill

whats preventing you from learning to spell JvL?

GAX30 doesnt have a trem, so you could use that as an excuse, also if you don't want a trem then what about new pickups and whatever?

if you don't give me a new guitar, the terrorists have won
i suggest saving up for your own guitar, that way you'll feel heaps better about it and be more responsible

A better guitar will enable me to play better in the sense of bends will be easier so will slides and generally the difficulty to apply techniques on the guitar will drop a notch.

How long have you had the first guitar....and in all honesty you'd be better off angling for a new amp than a new guitar.

Explain the tunings to them. Some songs you play in standard and some songs you play in E flat. When you gig, its easier to just switch guitars...

save up and buy it without their permission

A new amp your benefit you MUCH more. A 10 watt practice amp isn't gonna cut it forever.

Unless you guitar have tuning problem, bad frets, neck bend or anything that make it unplayable, your priority is a new amp.

Firstly, the amp is the priority as stated.

Secondly, you can make a bunch of reasons. If you play with humbuckers, say you need single coils and get a Strat. If you want a hollowbody say your solidbody isn't warm enough. If you've got a solid bridge you need a trem and if you've got a trem you need a solid bridge for sustain.

Also, dont forget "just because" and "your mum" as reasons.

get a job and buy the guitar yourself. Then you won't need any reasons.
#28
the tuning issue is another reason, especially if you are gigging.

my parents were still really strange about getting a new one even when i had the money for it :S

Tell your parents that your old guitar is saying, "Kill Your Parents!"

Then you can say I am afraid of this guitar, please buy me another one. Preferably the _________.
