Well I was looking for my first setup, never played guitar in my life. I saw the Ibanez RG321MHGN in Grey Nickel and heard it was a good guitar. It was only $280 online, so I called my local Sam Ash to see if they had one in stock, turns out, they were out, but it's only $200. They said they placed an order for one so this should be great.

So here is my setup:

Amp:

Cable:

Any other recommendations?

In that price range i would rather go with a Vox AD15VT or the 30 watt version its more versatile

Unless you want to fingerpick metal licks and solos you might want some dunlop tortoiseshell picks. Get the big ****ing fat purple ones. They last forever. Also I have the 15watt version of that Roland amp. They're pretty awesome for being tiny.

only thing i have to say, is if you don't want your guitar sounding like it's coming from a computer, don't get that amp, but other than that, seems like a really good beginner set up
Gear:
Jackson DKMG Dinky (EMG 81/85)
Ibanez GIO (i put a Dimbucker in the bridge)
Crate GT65 (65 watts) to be upgraded soon, suggestions welcome (must be tubed)
Floor Pod (for sale)

Surely you mean the Dunlop Tortex picks?

What are you talking about? Cube 30s are awesome beginner amps.

TS: Stick with the cube. If you're just starting out then they are perfect amps since they have built in effects and you just turn a knob to get different kinds of sounds without too much fiddling.

A tuner is a must though and some picks would help too.
