..It's my birthday on Friday. I'll be 16. I have no idea what I want.

Help? The budget is probably around $800 at the most.

I was thinking maybe an Epi Firebird and a Raven amp. But I'm undecided. Or maybe something for recording. I really don't know.

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.

Mostly punk/alternative, with a bit of Iron Maiden. Why not a Raven?

Edit: It's probably not even 800. I'm talking absolute best case scenario right now.

You already have a Gibson SG so, I would spend the cash on a nice amp, seeing as how it will affect your overall tone more than another guitar will.

A Laney or something would do you nicely for tones like Franz etc? You'd be better off posting/getting this moved to the GG&A section if you want better answers though.

However if you want Pit answers....

Same, I usually get about £30s worth of cds and stuff, I don't really ask for much anymore. It's no different from any other day of the year, why should I make my parents spend money they don't have to?

How much metal? Balls to the wall gain out the ying-yang, or Maiden/Metallica stuff?

Edit: oh, do you gig, jam, or bedroom practice?

Maiden/Metallica stuff. I jam mostly, with a few gigs here and there.

Cool, sounds like a small to mid sized tube combo would suit you nicely. Is there a GC near you?

Yeah I was there today actually. I played this Ocean bass through a Markbass.

F*ck those amps are awesome.

When I record though, I usually record direct so I don't even need an amp. So I'm still pretty undecided..

What I was thinking.

It's good to have a nice amp for jamming and gigging. Maybe stop by GC and give it a spin, see if you like it enough to get it. It's a good investment!

Hey, my birthday is this Friday too! We are birthday buddies!

I'll probably get $150-$200 tops. If I get too much I feel spoiled though, so it's all good.
#32
Wooh! There's too many people with our birthday. Off the top of my head, 4 of my friends have it, my girlfriends mom, my English teacher, Stevie Ray Vaughn..One of the guys from the Backstreet Boys...

And..Ashlee Simpson.
