^Heyyyyyyyy get a new amp. A used Peavey 5150 seems to be right up your alley.

Schecter C-1 Classic is really nice.

Agreed, although a Hellraiser would probably be more suited to what he plays.

Truth.
I played the C-1 classic at Guitar Center and got some nice blues tone.
I was surprised.
I plays guitars.

I think the Classic is more suited to blues than metal. I think Schecter kind of gets pigeon-holed as a guitar for high-gain music, even though they make some pretty versatile guitars. That being said, I don't really like the Seymour Duncan JB for anything . I have an S-1 Blackjack, and I probably play clean 95% of the time.

go with anything schecter. i've got an s-1 elite and it's the truly the one of the most versatile, affordable, quality, and beautiful guitars i've ever seen. it's really brutal for playing heavy sh*t too

People. He has a Spider half stack. He needs a new amp.

Stop all guitar purchases until you have a new amp. Owning a Spider amp will make an acoustic sound bad, just because solid-state half stacks offend all guitars.

will plays esp: Eclispe II AHB should work for you or go for the sig(sometimes overpriced but worth the pride)
mark plays jackson: i'd just get his sig

He has a Valve Spider, which are actually pretty decent. But if you did just get it, maybe return it, a used Peavey 5150 AND a new guitar would be readily available.

My eyes decided to skip over the "valve" part of your "spider half stack" sentence. My apologies .

Not the amp I'd choose, but a decent amp nonetheless.

You could always just replace the pickups in your Damien, or are you looking for a non FR guitar?
