i still have the same old cheap sp-10 Squier amp that came with my Squier. so yea im probably joining my friends band soon. its a hardcore/punk band and i was wondering if most guitars sound basically the same on the same amp. because i obviously dont want to audition with that cheap amp because the sound quality is terrible. so the question is, do basically all guitars sound the same on the same amp??

Pretty much all guitars sound the same on a cheap, poorly made amp...
But that's not the case if it's a good amp.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Hmm, well think about it. Why would people want to purchase different amps? Because they look cooler? It's mainly because they give or compliment your guitar's overall tone or vice versa.

I suggest getting a new amp..unless if you're really good because seriously...everything will sound horrible through that.

^Well, it depends on the amp itself, and how you eq it. Some amps tend to swallow the guitar's sound alive and make every guitar sound alike. While others let the original signal shine through more.

That's also very true.
