If I had that kind of money I'd definately get a custom shop ESP! Or a really nice Gibson and a wall hanger so then in like 40 years you can sell it in atleast decent condition and you'll be filthy rich lol.

Actually, I'd buy both... Then a 2203k Marshall head (it's the Kerry King model... Say what you will about the guy, I don't like him too much either, but that's a great head IMO.) and a wall or Marshall cabs.

Or I'd use it on gas for the next day or two.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Twenty nine ... thousand ... US DOLLARS!? OH GOod GOD!!! I don't even know! Get a custom Brian May guitar. An AC30. Get two guitars if yo uwant! GOOD GOD!
#14
Mkay.....look here:
http://www.nikhuber-guitars.de/2006_home.htm

All hand made custom guitars, the cheapest one is over 2000€. The other models cost at least twice as much. The best one (the 'flying dolphin') costs over 8000€. I myself want to buy the 'Redwood' when I have the cash for it (about 4000&euro.

Amazing guitars, quality wise comparable to PRS Privat Stock instruments. These beat any guitars you see hanging in music stores. As much as I love Gibsons....they don't have sh*t on this.
#15
Although common sense is telling this is all BS...

What styles of music do you play?
And do you promise not to "customize" the guitar you get...?

EDIT: obvious troll is obvious....

2 months!? and you're already buying a guitar with 15 grand!?!? i revoke my earlier statement, and say, blow your money when you've got a bit more experience. and by a bit i mean at least 4 years.

Get real. You don't need to spend that kind of money to get a nice guitar..

£1-2k would buy you a VERY nice guitar and a hot amp...
#23
Dude, get yourself a decent beginners guitar when you've only been playing for two months. Not to offend you, but you cannot possibly have the experience to choose the perfect instrument for yourself by now. It'sd be a shame to see those 15 grand go to waste. Nobody knows if you're going to keep playing guitar anyway or if you'll be sick of it in half a year.
#24
Ok, if you really want to spend some money get a valveking combo and a decent guitar, why would you want to spend that much on a guitar you won't even be able to play? I mean if you had been playing for 5 maybe 10 years, and were really getting into it like gigging and recording and starting to make money sure, spend that much on a guitar. That's how you make money, you want the best. But at this point you don't need that much of a guitar, and people are not going to think you're any better (nor will you be any better) because you can afford a really nice expensive guitar.
#25
Check out Ed Romans website. He has some amazing vintage stuff, including one of K.K. Downing's Flying Vs, some awesome batwing guitars, and so much more. Just look around. $29k US will get almost anything. It doesnt matter how long you have been playing, if you have enuff money, get w/e you want.
#26
1) How much is 15, 000 Euros in Canadian/US dollars?
2) What kind of music do you play?
3) Amp too? How much, how big, Solid State or Tube?

This is a stupid idea. It is just plain retarded to spend over $500 on a guitar unless you are looking to keep it in it's case as a collectors item and never play it.
#28
I think this is bogus...how did some fuker save for years and years (with the intention?) of blowing it on a guitar and not know what the hell he's planning on getting. fuk-off bs show off...saving 15,000 pounds or about $30,000 US/CDN and not (apparently??) know what the fuk your getting-dumbass...I don't care if its 1500 or 15,000 pounds you saved (for years and years) your an idiot...instead of skipping on down to a guitar shop you should save for years and years more, buy yourself a rocket, of course just skip on over to the rocket shop and buy what we tell you, then blast yourself into the frikin sun...!

Ahhh, i feel better.

Actually if your going to spend that kind of cash your probably looking at some older Gibsons or Fenders, you know collector type stuff. There really aren't many new $30,000 guitars sitting around in shops as most people will not spend that. Zmatius (sp?) maybe. The Frankenstein is $25,000...other than that, why would you spend that much anyways???? buy a lot of different guitars, or take a trip, buy a car, get an education, RRSP's??????

No... 15 grand in British Pounds (if your american, if your british, your right)

In US Dollars that is $29,176.50

If you are going to waste that kind of money on a guitar I guess you could go find a really good luthier and just tell him/her what you want.

Go with a Squier Bullet and a Line 6 Spider III.

On a serious note if I had that kind of money to blow on guitar stuff, I would go with the Eric Clapton Signature Strat, either a Twin Reverb, Fender Twin, or Bassman. Hell I'd get all of them and I'd still have money left over.
#34
Don't spend all that on a setup after only two months of playing. It's a waste. Just get yourself a nice intermediate guitar and practice amp for now, and save up even more for later on when you can actually take full advantage of such an expensive setup.
Heads will roll. Throats will be slit. Blood will flow like springs of water.

If you HAVE 15000£, than you shouldnt buy a £500 guitar. Get yourself a nice USA guitar that costs approx 1000£, and you'll have a guitar that will last a lifetime. Then another 1000£ for the amp and you have a dreamrig for 2000£. Still 13000£ left for a car or something else.

PRS custom 24.
