Which is better, a Gibson SG or FLying V. Also what is the difference besides the paint job for faded and standard gibson guitars?

Faded are standards artificially aged to look older.

depends what you mean by hard rock

the main differences between Gibson SGs and Flying Vs are of a cosmetic and Comfort nature, they sound pretty similar really.

So maybe I should just get an SG. I am not going to be doing any shows yet. But the V is cooler and I think might be better for hard rock.

I wanna get a gibson because they are more proffesional even though im not that good yet (But i'm planning many months in advanced). Maybe I should just get a standard strat.

They're are the business most associated with successful rock musicians but they are not the most professional. In fact, some enthusiasts suggest their quality control has gone down hill since their hayday.

Every brand is capable of supplying a professional level instrument.

Both will probably be good for hard rock if you mean AcDc and things like that. If the prices are the same, and im not sure that they are, then i'd go for the sg, you can gig with it, and sit with it, i have a V, you have no idea when people tell you that they are awkward just how much of a difference they make to your playing sat down.

and the strats are good, but unless you get a hss or hh, then they arent AS versatile for rock as the dual humbucker gibsons. still not bad though, and cheaper i believe.

I still like gibson's the most. I also like Fender's second most.

both will be about the same quality, and probably about the same for what you want.

Schenker played a V, and if you listen to UFO (especially the Strangers in the Night live album) you'll hear a godly hard rock tone.

Basically, both will be good, go try them out and decide.

What sound are you looking for in a amp? I would suggest the fender blues junior, since it's an actual tube amp with a smooth sound (harder stuff can be achieved with pedals).
If you want something a bit more powerful, check out the peavey windsor head, goes for $399 and spanks out some good tunes with a whopping 120 watts of tube power. You could also check out the peavey valveking 112 combo, it's 50 watt tube power so you know that you will get something serious out of it, though it runs for a bit over $400, but you could probably squeeze the price down to $400 by bargaining in guitarcenter.
