definitely go with the epiphone... i'll try and find a better epiphone V, because the low-end gibsons pretty much suck compared to epiphones of the same price

EDIT: depending on what you play, you should probably get one of these.

I would say one of the first two, but it's your choice.

That's bull. have you actually tried the faded v's? Many people prefer those to regular v's. the faded sg's are the ones that aren't up to par.

I'm sure a good sg would beat whatever you have.

The faded series in general suck. If you like the Randy Rhoads' shape, try out the RR3.

^No actually they don't. Have YOU tried the faded dc, sg, lp, or v? no? Then i suggest you don't bash them. Faded sg's, lp's, and dc's, are overpriced but even some experienced guitar players think that the v's are actually better than the normals because of the lack of finish. I was skeptical at first too but it's true. I HAVE tried them all and the v is the only one worth it's cost and more. And how do you expect people to believe your opinion when you own not only a spider II but also an mg and peavey ss? I doubt you've even tried one. Stop parrotting what you've heard and spreading lies.

I have 2 friends with faded series, a V with the crescent moon inlays, and another friend that had the SG, but most likely sold it for money to get drugs. I have also played others at Guitar Center and just because I have an MG and a Spider doesn't mean my point is invalid. Just because I can't afford expensive amps doesn't mean I don't know what I'm talking about so you should stop the bashing and shut the **** up, seriously, people are so ignorant on this board.

Anyways, don't go with low-level Gibsons since they are decent, but no where near what their higher counterparts.

If you can afford 3 shitty amps then you can afford 1 decent one. My point isn't that because you have 3 shitty amps you are untrustworthy. My point is that you're saying that fadeds suck but how can people trust your ear for tone when you can't even tell that spiders, marshalls, and peavey ss's are not up to the standards of their price range?

Low level gibsons CAN compete with their higher counterparts although it's mostly a matter of preference.

Dude, his price range is 300-500, not that much. Plus, I don't use my amps much unless I am at band practice. Mostly, I use my pedal. Also, my Peavey was my dad's from the 80's, so I didn't buy that one. Also, I can get some pretty good tones from my Marshall and Line 6, its just most people think they suck because they don't EQ for their environment and don't have it at the right position. Both are decent amps.

It's not that hard to talk someone down from 580 to 500. I did it. And you can buy used. Pedals don't change the amp tone that much and yeah, mg's and spiders are decent, but not for what they cost. The spider maybe but not the mg.

I bought a faded double cutaway a few months ago and I absolutely love it, but I had to play a lot of unbelievably shitty faded's before I found one that played well, sounded great and was well put together. If you can pick a good faded out of all the shit, they are well worth the money- you just have to be prepared to play a bunch first.

Yeah i've heard about people getting thos great fadeds out of a pile of shit but unfortunatly i havn't been able to find one except for a few v's. But since i spend a lot of time playing sitting down i'll be going for a prs se instead.
