I was wondering if anyone knew if the Epiphone G-310 [SG] and the Behringer V-Tone GMX210 is a good combo for a guitar and amp.

I like to play punk, punk rock, alternative rock, rock and a little bit of metal.

Also, just a quick question, do guitar leads play any kind of factor in the sound?

Thanks,

I'd go for the G-400 it shouldn't cost too much more, and it's a great guitar in its own right.

As for the behringer I'm not so sure, they make decent pedals and rack systems for budget players, I've never tried their amps before though.

[edit] Also! your question about guitar leads factoring into the tone, buy good quality leads if you can afford them! they'll give a little extra clarity when you're playing, but they'll only sound as good as the rest of your gear is

ie. Playing a battered squire through a marshall microstack with the worlds most expensive lead is still going to sound sh*t, if you get what i mean

Hmm... why's it a trap? I can spend like 600 bucks MAX on a guitar AND amp.

Well I say go for the G-400.Alot better and not alot more.
I'm not exactly sure what amp you are talking about but assuming it's the one you get in the behringer V-tone pack then it's a good beginners amp.
A couple of my mates own beginners packs and the behringer beats the drive hands down for the price.Can get over drums just.

The G-400 looks good, but I doubt I'll be able to afford it.

So, your sure it will sound bad?

Is the G400 is only £50 more where i live, if you shop around you should get a good deal. About the amp too, try it out first and if you like it then get it!

Yeah I was gonna go try the SG-310 with the Line 6 Spider 3 in Billy Hyde, then just try various amps and stuff. Thanks alot for your help!

PS I don't really know the prices TOO well at the moment, I've just looked on the website at the G-310 and GMX20 so far.

i found a good lead doesnt sound noticable better than a bad one in terms of sheer sound quality, but one thing for sure, you get way more interference with bad leads. Especially noticable if you are playing clean. ALso cheap ones tend to break all the time.

Try a G-400 and valve junior, that will hit about 716 in Australia, so if you want to go for that.

If you buy them together, you can usually haggle the sales people down by 50 bucks at least.

The G-400 is like $400 USD.

Behringer stuff tends to die on you frequently so it may sound okay, but it probably wont last.

Get the G-400 and this

Yeah i didn't recommend a tube because he plays mainly genres will a good chunk of distortion and he's on a tight budget so there wasnt a lot of room for a good disto/OD pedal and a decent amp/guitar. The G-400 is supposed to be good, it sounds good but i thought it felt funny, try it out though

Areound here the G-400 Vintage is only $299, which is $50 more than the G-310. It felt like a much better guitar to me when I played them both. If you are looking for an inexpensive amp with lots of options that doesn't sound bad, try out a one of the Peavey Vypyrs. I have the 15w version and it sunds pretty good for a $99 amp.
