How about that I use my Strat more for metal? It's true :smug:

[QUOTE=LasGunz;28581721]That's really nothing like I'm wanting to do.[/QUOTE] I thought you wanted to wear down the poly finish so you could 'relic' it, wouldn't that be the place to start?

shouldve said "spyder" in my post lemme edit that in
Line 6 are good amps, don't forget their affiliation with Bogner. You guys don't hat Line 6, you hate their spider amps, because with them, you will never be satisfied with your tone. My mesa quad on the other hand... :smug:

Good luck sanding it down, fiesta red strats look great.
[QUOTE=LasGunz;28582250](note: not bashing Ibanez but they generally attract a certain kind of guitarist/genre)[/QUOTE] I wasn't aware awesome was a genre. [QUOTE=Clovis;28583363]My mesa quad on the other hand... :smug:[/QUOTE] Jealous. And no us hating [i]Line 6[/i] is a running gag. The cheap shit is bad, as is everybody's cheap shit, it just happens to drive amateurs on youtube to spectacular shitty covers more than anything else.

The Line6 amps in college are so tempermental. You touch ONE setting ever so slightly and the whole thing goes fucking nuts. I genuinely do hate them. They might have other nice amps but every amp I've used from them has been a bad experience.

And remember I'm referring to a stereotype of sorts.. but they're stereotypes for a reason.. I'm not saying every Ibanez user is a metalhead who puts acoustic strings on their guitar so they can keep tension at drop C and below, I'm just saying that's [I]generally[/I] who they attract. I'd like a nice looking Ibanez at some point but it doesn't really match what I play, though I'm sure it could I'm attached to Stratocasters and Telecasters.
since this thread is more active than the bass thread i'd figure i'd ask here whats a bass thats good for playing pretty much anything? (as i know some basses aren't good when it comes to playing funk, and i like to play funk.) i've got a budget of 200ish. was thinking squier affinity series jazz bass, but i dunno. or maybe an ibanez? i got a friend who's got an ibanez bass, gio i think, and it plays funk and everything else perfectly. ;~) i'm a noob

I understand they have a reputation, but Ibanez make good quality guitars that do far more than metal.

I'm about to sell one of my guitars, but I have a slight problem. The guitar in question is a ESP LTD Viper 400 w/ EMG 81/85's My problem is that I don't know what I can get for it, price wise. It is in good condition, with the only flaw being a nick in the back of neck. Anyone have any ideas on what I can sell it for? Im from Michigan if that means anything...
60% of retail person to person (maybe a little more on a good day), maybe 40% to a shop
The only places I can find online selling them are going for $600. They have been replaced by the Viper 401, which is the same thing.. and it too retails for $600.. So, $350-$360ish?
Put an ad up for $450 and negotiate down from there. There's a lot of tire kickers out there so don't get discouraged and trade it into a shop, you'll get shit all for it
Sounds like a solid plan. There is no way I would even think about bringing it to a shop. The only shop around here is Guitar center, and they probally would give me $100 if i was lucky..
I really want to buy this Blackstar HT-5 Mini half-stack [img]http://www.guitar.co.uk/documents/4340/4340-additional-1.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.gtrmusic.co.uk/images/products/amps/blackstar_ht5-S_mini_stack_valve_guitar_amp_headl.jpg[/img] I'm in love with it
I own a HT5 Combo, so I can see why.
I know the Marhsall MG 250dfx is not good sounding, but considering how expensive it was, are the speakers any good? It's hard to find info on them, Marshall just calls them "12" Custom"
