I have a Dean Vendetta XM and im getting a Line 6 Spider III 75. Now.. Im wondering if i should just get my XM upgraded or buy a new one. I play mainly punk ish.. and hard rock. I kinda' play sloppy but thats the way I like it so. I've never really upgraded a guitar or anything so im wondering what kinda' stuff i should get.
Such as..


I've never did stuff like this so.. if you guys could help me i'd appreciate it.
I need some pickups with good distortion and sustain. something that will make my power chords sound good.

Uhh.. my budget would be around.. 250.

First, Do not buy that spider, just dont. Do not be fooled by the "hundreds of amps in one" ****, There are many better options for an amp.
Second, I'd say you should go ahead and buy a new guitar, I personally suggest an Ibanez, but you could browse.

i cant help you on the pickups though i have never upgraded much.

Good Luck!
You can never have to many guitars and I agree, forget the spider there is much better out there in the price range.

Don't buy the spider.

Now that I've said that...

If you really must...I'd say buy a new and better guitar, there really isn't much point in upgrading yours as I don't really think Pickups and stuff will improve the sound quality much, if at all.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

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