Hello and thanks for coming into the thread. I've got $300 and I'm looking for either a couple pedals, or a half-decent new guitar, but i'm open to other things that you guys enjoy having/using. Any suggestions? And regarding pedals, they have to work with a Spider III 75 watt... please refrain from flaming my amp...

I'm not going to flame your amp, however i will say that since it's a modeler, most pedals will not work with it, I'd strongly suggest looking into new amps because from my experience, most guitars will sound very similar through a spider. But if you insist on a new guitar, what kind of music do you play and are there any specific wants and needs for your instrument?

I tend to play glam metal, and i do a fair amount of tapping...and JWD thanks for being...unjustly prejudiced. I'm looking for a V, but if it isn't, I'm fine with that as well. Any opinions on this guitar?http://www.guitarcenter.com/Dean-VX-Electric-Guitar-104309497-i1150761.gc

Most Deans are fairly decent guitars, it's just one of those whole can you get something better for the money kind of things.

Not a V, more of an X shaped guitar, but it's an LTD so the quality will be great and this whole selection http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/navigation/esp-guitar-basses-solid-body-electric-guitars?N=100001+306241+201358+9 is in the 200-300 dollar range and should all be pretty nice.

That's a V, it's 400 but you may be able to find it used or something, maybe save up another few months?

And I didn't mean to insult your amp, I just wanted to merely point out that most modelers don't sound great with pedals because it's just too much digital in a lot of cases. The spider isn't a terrible practice amp but if you want to start a pedal collection, a nicer solid state or small tube might be up your alley.

I've heard good things about vypyrs though, just try before you buy and if you can throw in a pedal or two if you plan on using them and just make sure they sound okay.
