Title says it all. Tax money cometh, and I’ve decided to rededicate myself to practicing again. Problem is right now I have really shitty gear.
I new a new guitar and a new amp.
I’m looking at a couple “best cheap electric guitar” lists online and so far my favorites have been these:
Ibanez Art 100
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Schecter Omen Extreme 6
Squier Classic Vibe 50’s Strat
I really like the Schecter and the Ibanez guitars on this list, both from a looks and versatility standpoint as I like to play some metal stuff. Anyone have any experience with any of these guitars, or have any suggestions?
For amps, I’m pretty enamored with this Blackstar amp: http://www.blackstaramps.com/products/ht-5th/
I’ve listened to a lot of Blackstar amps played online and I am impressed with the way they sound. I’d love to spring for their 5w stack, the HT-5RS but it’s $800 so therefore not in the cards.
I want to get a tube amp but I’ve never owned one. I’m not playing out anywhere so I don’t need anything more than 30 watts, I’d say. This is an area where I’m going to need some extra help as I have no experience with using tube amps.
Give a fella a hand!
