I currently have an Epi Les Paul Custom,I run through an Me-50 into a *cough*mg..*cough* and my b-day is coming up in 2 weeks,I play most genres of rock from gun's n' roses to the strokes.
I'm wondering do any of you guys have any ideas that i could get e.g guitar/music related?
And don't say a new amp....:p

I've thought about new p-ups,new pedals etc.
My dad has an sg from 1991 that the hardware is a bit shitty on,All of the screws will need replacing and most of the hardware really,Maybe you couldsuggest some cool parts for it and i also sent a 1973 strat into get some repair work done to the electronics,it sounds great but it's the typical black and white strat that you see 999 times a day these days,Any ideas for strat parts?
Thanks.

How much money? I would suggest a used jcm 800 or 900.

Why put the cough cough thing around the MG if you dont want to hear about not getting a new amp? you seriously should try a new amp and open up your tone.

Actually, I just read this post a bit more.


Change your amp, you NEED a new amp.

Sorry guys!
Lol i tried to make absolutely sure i put in as much info as possible for fear of flames :p
yeah i'd say a compfortbale budget of 150-200 from each parent,To be onest im perfectly happy with my mg it's jsut i know you people don't like it,I got it cheap and it was worth it if i wouldve paid more i wouldve been pissed but all i wanted was a big/cheap amp with a decent clean for my pedal.
I've gotten a few compliments for my tone and i know what i'm doing,the mg is grand when you have the music to back it up!
To be honest i really wouldn't mind a nice dsl maybe,To be honest i don't know much about the higher end marshalls except that i probably can't afford them,But how much woulda used one go for?
I'd still have to get speakers though or could i just input it into my mg's?

EDIT:My father's a proffesional musician so he'd know where to go for a good deal if i told him what i wanted,I've already asked him and he said he'll think what i should get.
He plays a Gretsch White Falcon,A U.s Tele and a 335 through an ac-30 and he even said i had a very nice tone when he saw me play.So i think i'm ok for my amp really.

Ahh, well..if you're happy with it, nothing we can do. Just jack your dad's ac30 though, lol. Yeah, just fix up the SG if you can...maybe new pick ups?

Lol he offered me the use of his backup ac-30 because his one has never broken down in like 10 years so maybe haha.
The sg works fine its jsut not in great cosmetic order to be honest,there's rust on a lot of the hardware except from the pups surprisingly,i was thinking maybe some gold hardware or something,But to be honest i'm not excactly in love with the sound of it,So if i were to upgrade it i would like atleast a burstbucker maybe.

Don't bother with Gibson pickups, way overpriced for an upgrade. If you know what you want from them there'll be much better (and cheaper) options around.

ok, about 400 dollars i'm guessing., if you'd like a new amp, try a VOX AD50VT, seriously, i have one, and it's is extremely versatile, and has a few effects loaded on, it will honestly make a world of difference between that and an MG, but if you don't want a new amp, you could go to stewmac.com and get new hardware for the SG, and a seymourduncan custom pickup (the name is custom), and a 59' in the neck, that should round out that money great
#11
The other guitar player in my band uses the ad100vt and i love it but my mg and my pedal are excactly what i need/want,Thanks though i know they're great amps!
I dunno about the sg,I mean i have my les paul that nothings gonna look better than (its bootiful) and it sounds fantastic so i'd like somesuggestions about upgrading my les paul,I don't think it needs new pups they sound grand already.

Yeah this might sound strange but i'd like to replace the gold hardware on my lp with gold hardware....
:/ basically the hardware thats on it now is too shiny and the gold hardware that the other guitar payer from my dads band has on his white lp is kind of a matte gold..its probably real gold though ince he payed 3500 for it.
Where would i get good lookign gold hardware? that isnt 24 carat lol

Trems are bad for anything if it isn't properly supported...
