Yeah, it's an OFR. I know cuz I just played it the other day at my local Guitar Center. Get one of the C-1's. Floyd, hardtail, your choice but they're both great guitars. Avenger's are just, ew looking.
Guitar Center don't have ESP's, sorry. Don't worry though. They usually have some nice Jacksons. And yes, LTD's from the 400 Series or higher are good guitars. You should definetely check this one out though if you have $950
Eh, i'm not to big a fan of the inlays on the C-1 Classic. Pretty much all the same features besides finishes and inlays, and $200. So I personally would actually pick the C-1 Artist (prepares for flamage). I might actually be getting that one soon. If you want EMG's though, get the C-1 Hellraiser without the Floyd Rose.
The Crate Blue Voodoo 150 watt head I used a few weeks ago had some pretty heavy distortion on it alone, I didn't even need to pull my out Digitech Grunge pedal. It sounds great, too. Far better then those other piece of crap solid state amps they have.
I was looking at some digital delay pedals and i was wondering. What exactly is the difference between the Boss DD-3 and the Boss DD-6, besides like $50? Is one better than the other and if so, which one?
try looking for some good used shit. or you could maybe play some small shows with that acoustic at a coffee place or smething, lol. the ibanez jumpstart package looks okay too, not sure about the amp but the guitar is decent. that's only about $250 USD.
