ok so there is not much cash to burn and i already have some ideas

at the moment i have possibly the worst set up ever...

*braces self*

A marshall rocket special and a marshall mg15cdr. and a ds1 which i quite like


MY idea so far is either
GUITAR = £220 max
a lag jet 100

I will probably get my mate to put in some better pickups eventually when i scrape some more cash.

AMP = £100
and then after i sell the marshall junk i want to buy a small 5 watt tube
either the epi vj or the harley benton as people seem to like both


by the way i play stuff like the holloways (i know the lead singer plays the lag jet 1000), arctic monkeys to muse to red hot chili peppers


which do you think i should buy. i am only a poor beginner really so please dont start recomending deluxe american fenders
all help would be appreciated
I had a good sig once....

ah who am i kidding

AMP=75% of your tone. Remember this.

I'd say go for a used guitar and get a nice amp. It'll pay off in the end better than if you spend the majority of your cash on a guitar.


What kind of music do you play?

EDIT: Never mind. Didn't catch the end of the post. Well dude, I really don't know.

I definitely wouldn't spend more on the guitar than on the amp, I made that mistake when I got my first guitar.

I usually play anything i like which usually is indie/mainstream rock so the holloways, red hot chili peppers, foo fighters, arctic monkeys, foo fighters, billy talent

quite a mix

i only want a small amp for practice as i usually play on my mates old tube amp or at school thats why i thought an epiphone valve junior combo would be best.

EDIT: the vintage modified tele is made from Indian red cedar and is built in india.
I don't know how much difference there is between chinese alder squiers but i thought i ought to post it anyway

The Vox Valvetronix Series go as small as 15W and will pretty cover what you're looking for in your styles of music. And the 15W is under £100 i believe

Have a look here www.gak.co.uk

Oh yeah, and those VM Squiers are meant to be alright so go for it
