Alrighty so... to make the story shot I've got lucky and got a REALLY easily treatable cancer, so I get a make-a-wish (I'm 17...) and I play guitar, I've been playing for two years mostly playing zepplin and some stuff from walsh.. but I'm heavily into emo music (yeah it's sad I know)

I've been playing on an Ibanez IC-400 (might be a 300 sorry I'm too lazy to check) Iceman.. and I am looking for a really great guitar. I play on a Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier full stack 150w (before that... a 30 watt fender) so any tips will be greatly appreciated.

Anything eh?

Get a custom built Carvin at www.carvin.com

And good luck with the cancer.

gibson zakk wylde model (not just les paul model)
ibanez rg2228 (interesting model)
or the bc rich drako

and

GET WELL SOON!!

I think Carvin's website says 6-8 weeks somewhere.

Or you could get on of their "in stock" models which are the same as the customs but they're already all together and ready to get shipped out.

You can't go wrong with a Vox Clyde McCoy Wah, Electro-Harmonix Small Clone, Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail, Marshall Vibratrem, DOD Envelope Filter, Digitech Whammy, Line 6 Echo Park Delay, Guyatone OD2...

There's a ton of great effects pedals out there.

First, we determine a child’s medical eligibility with the help of the treating physician. To receive a wish, the child must be diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition – i.e., a progressive, degenerative or malignant condition that has placed the child’s life in jeopardy.
Once we know the child is medically eligible...


from the make a wish website.

Seems like a manipulation of a non-profit charity in this particular instance. Maybe you should refuse the wish and ask that the money go towards a child with a terminal condition, instead of freeloading with an "easily treatable" one.

get the most expensive guitar you can, i mean like really push it out.....like summit that costs a few grand, then sell it!

then buy what guitar you want with the funds and have to left over for effects n shit.
