No im gonna buy Roland Cube 20X which is more than enough for me and I've heard that cubes are really good amps.

As for the guitar I also found in one near music shop the Stagg L300 for a good price but I couldn't find any reviews if it is good.

Though the 20x is an alright amp, when people are talking about rolands, they're talking about the ones with amp modeling, which really are great. ones with modeling include the microcube, and cube 30 and above. I'd suggest getting a yamaha pacifia and a microcube

I would go with an Agile AL-2000, which is a decent Les Paul copy, or an OLP MM-1, which is a licensed copy of the Eddie Van Halen signature guitar.

i have an epi 310 i use for open tuning and it's a nice little axe for the money ... you can pick one up used pretty cheap really ... it's a thicker neck style just fyi
take care,

go to your nearby guitar repair shop and see what they have used, pawn shops too. nothing better than a seasoned guitar that already has all the bugs taken out of it.

get BRAND NAME guitar this way parts & upgrades will be low cost and easy to do & find. if you have to sell it, youll get real money back for it.

Fender Standard strats can be found on ebay for under $250. i got 3 that way. it was a gamble, but it paid off big time. ask lots of questions. negotiate!

But they don't use the same modelling system, I believe. Anyone able to tell me better?

Go with a cube 30 and a pacifica.

Take a look at the Schecters. Great quality control and good hardware.

Of course the best thing is to walk around your local store and play everything in that price range.
#16
thanks a lot I'm gonna think about your suggestions
What about Dean Vendetta 1F? from what ive heard its a pretty decent guitar....and hot :P
#17
No to cheap deans. Don't buy a cheap dean or BC rich, they are a waste of money.

agreed with copilot911, if ya gonna get a Dean, go for the expensive ones. most guitar brands do really good cheap guitars (i.e. gibson have epiphone, fender have squier, ibanez have gio-ibanez, and there's more, i can only think of them at the top of my head) but if ya gonna buy a cheap guitar, buy something that was INTENDED to be cheap, not something the factory hated and just marked down on price to shift them lol
