For Christmas I got a Epiphone LP and I bought a Line6 SpiderIII 30w amp.

A friend of mine has one of those, the Black Beauties play wonderful!

 

I've decided that I'm going to buy a multi-effects before I go into single pedals. I was thinking in a Zoom G7.1ut. I like the features, I want the USB recording and the tube is intriguing me.

I'm thinking about buying a guitar,so...

 

http://www.thomann.de/gb/ibanez_gsa6j_jb_jumpstart.htm

 

think this would be a good start?

Yes.

But, then again, that depends.

If it's your first guitar or your first electric guitar, a starter pack like that is a goodchoice. If it's your second or third or so on guitar, go for somehting a little higher in quality. I have an Ibanez S-series and it's excellent.

Indeed, mine plays great as well. Going from a very cheap strat copy to this, the sound upgrade brings joy to my ears.

 

Only thing I don't like is how the bottom frets overlap the body, I was used to the strat style where all of the frets where on the neck not overlapping the body.

The problem is that I only have 300 Euro max to spend,so a higher quality guitar is out of reach.

Hey guys, I'm really interested in buying a bass guitar, however I've never exactly played before or know much about guitars. I'm a really big fan of music and its just hit me now to take interest in learning how to play guitar. So basically I would really love to know what should I do to take interest in learning and buying guitar.

Don't buy a starter pack, they all tend to be sh*t.

Rent something, and start taking lessons. That's the best advice I can give.

Check Squier (from Fender) and Epiphone (from Gibson) guitars. They're reissues of Fender & Gibson guitars. They are cheap, I got a Les Paul Special II from Epiphone for £98, and it sounds pretty well.

I got the Special II by Epiphone too, not the most reliable guitar as they are known to have problems with the input jack. Tones are a little limited due to the stock pickups but for the mean time it'll do.

 

But in all fairness, I've had it since 2004.

OK.

 

Now, let's say I'm going to replace the pickups in my Gibson SG Special with some Seymour Duncans.

 

What would be a good bridge/neck setup for classic rock and classic metal?

I've heard good things about the APH-1 Alnico Pro II in the neck and a

SH-PG-1 Pearly Gates in the Bridge. More of a Classic Rock/Blue setup though.

 

SH-1 '59 in the neck and SH-14 Custom 5 for the bridge is supposed to be a pretty good set up too, real vinatage sound, better for Classic Rock.

 

All of them are about £60 each, probably about $60 in America and all.

Indeed, I don't like the crappy pickups. I've been looking for original Gibson ones, and I've been thinking on the BurstBuckers 1 & 2. I'm not sure how that will work on my guitar. Comments?

The input jack seems a bit loose, but apart from that, it's a pretty good guitar.

 

Btw, since this guitar is made by Epiphone (which is owned by Gibson), it is considered an original Les Paul, am I right? dontgetit.gif

I feel that the DSOTM sticker was a great idea in terms of tone improvement and sustain.

That's a knockoff, not a real gibson.

Just look at the headstock. "EPOCH"? wtf?

 

Please tell me you didn't pay full price for that.......

Hey, f*ck you. No one's being an asshole, or laughing at you.

I was just pointing out that you're mistaken. I didn't want you to get fleeced.

However, if you bring that to a guitar store andsay it's a Gibson, prepare to be laughed at.

 

I suggest you tone down your attitude and learn a bit about the instrument..... since anyone who puts a sticker on their guitar obviously doesn't know the difference between a guitar and a broom with strings.

 

Oh, and btw, looking like a guitar and playing like a guitar doesn't make it a Gibson. "Sticking feathers up your butt doesn't make you a chicken" - Tyler Durden.
