can anyone tell me the finish type on the LTD Alexi-200??
Cos everytime i wanna get to changing my finish, something gets in the way. First i didnt know how to do it, then i get lectured about the fact that im gonna ruin my guitar now, my dads friend (who works in wood and paint and stuff) says that my finish is polyester, so sanding it will **** it up.
I just need someone to tell me what kind of finish it is, so that i can sand it then paint it as i like.
Ah, but the thing is i live in Lebanon. I can't find anything here. And if I do, prices are probably jacked up. But I've seen a Bad Monkey in Lebanon, probably 100$ or so. Soooooooo damn expensive, when it's actually 50$.
When I was in the states, I ordered something. And it was a week late, so i called to check where it was and GC said it was delayed. Then I called again, and started yelling and screaming, till they finally hung up on me (mother f***ers.
The day before I left for home, I went to Disneyland, and when I came home, to my surprise, stood (drumroll please).......
The Blackstar HT-5 Halfstack! Everyone seems to have one of these now .
I've had this amp for 2 weeks now, plays like a dream. Jut got around to doing a NAD now. Also, I got a new set of pups for my guitar. Installing them was a bi***, cos the cables wouldn't reach the output jack. So i just soldered wires to the tips and lengthened them. Problem solved. I got the Alexi Laiho EMG set. The pickup on its own is not that good for high gain stuff, but with the gain booster it sounds better than any active I have ever tried. And I love the 3 frequency switches on the bottom.
Family Pic (at least the ones I'm proud of):
And if anyone could help me get a Bodom-ish tone out of the HT-5 that would be awesome.
So a few days ago I was at grandmas playing on my little Marshall micro stack, on my crappy squire guitar, it didnt sound that bad. But when i play with it on my LTD alexi 200, at home when i cant go too loud it sounds like absolute crap. Too trebly, and just plain shi-te.
assuming you already have a cab, a JVM head should run about 1800$, so I'm guessing that it's a bit much. I dunno, I suggest getting a used JCM 800 (1000-1200 USD), or a DSL 401, but not sure how much those go for
