Maybe you should get something to record with, if you jive that way.

save up another $60, and get a Digitech Whammy... then send it to me if you decide you don't want it anymore.

i think my friend runs his PA system like a mixer, and it has like, a USB connection on it or something? but yeah, if you get a mixer with a USB interface and some software like Sony ACID, you should be able to do some pretty high quality recordings.

Naa just kidding but its a fun pedal could be worth it or a delay pedal or maybe a phaser for your solos to have a cool effect? or use the money to upgrade your pickups or take some advanced lessons to help you where you're struggling?

Then don't sell that one. Get a nice tube amp like a 5 watter. Maybe a Crate V8 or Peavey Royal 8 or one of those new Blackhearts. You will hear the sounds coming out of them and suddenly not like your df-7 I think.

Sell the amp, metal pedal, and whichever of the guitars you like less (unless you like them both!) and get a nicer amp. Mabye a Palomino V16?
#13
sell the amp, and all pedals and get a small tube amp or just sell the metal master and amp ON EBAY not to gutiar center b.c they will rip you off big time and get a valve JR or a crate those are amazing

Go to have music store the certificate works for and ask a guy if he's willing to sell ou $200 worth of guitar picks for just $140 and see what they say.

Get pickups. I had a squier and I put EMGs Actives on it. It really becomes a whole new guitar and I would say it was the single best investment I made for that guitar.
