Hi Guys,

I've got an SG copy (Coxx SD), which has a nice mahogany body and a decent finish.

Since I can't afford a new Gibson, I'm wondering if it was be better to slowly upgrade my current axe (ie: Pickups & all the other gear) to something better.....

Or

Will that just be more expensive in the long run, without improving the sound much? And I should save my money and go ahead eventually to buy a Les Paul BFG)

Just looking for some input.


Thanks,

changing the pickups can change your sound alot and it something I am a proponent of. Although new guitars are also great! In the long run it would be cheaper to upgade your axe than buying a Les Paul

i cant really answer your question coz i'm in a similar position, but i'd say sound isnt everything, remember feel and quality of construction and set up are important too...that usually comes with higher end guitars, cheap ones are hard to fix sometimes.

The amp is way more important. What do you have?

A Kustom (came with the beginners kit from the local guitar store, can't remember the exact model number).. not that bad according to my guitar teacher.

You will definitely get a bigger tonal improvement from a new amp. What genres do you play/how much money are you willing to spend?

Hi Darth,

I'm sort of varied, but tend to lean toward Rock (I especially like The Who, GnR etc) and Alternative (Nirvana), but stuff like Metallica doesn't phase me either :-)

So an amp to play a variety of styles..

How much am I willing to spend? About CHF 500 (+/-$500)

Cheers,
