Okay here goes,
ive been playing the guitar for about 1 and 1/2 years now. Ive got a Samick LW-20 Acoustic, and a couply of more mediocre acoustics..
around 6-7 back i bought a Java Strat Type for 4.5k, bought a Digitech RP80, and Philips headphones..
The java was decent, except it had a SSS Config, fret buzz on the 19th fret for the first 3 strings, quite badly made, the action was first too high, n when i made it lower, the fret buzz came out, the neck is pretty slow, not that good..Tones not all that good either
The volume knob was what i found really funny..full vol at 10, as i took it lower no effect, then on 3 it suddenly decreases, and at 2, sounds off.
quite a pain.
I play stuff like megadeth, foo fighters, creed, alterbridge, metallica, maiden etc.
bits of trivium , bodom, but mostly just the rhythm part
so im not lookin for the real heavy metal sound, and i'd want a particulary good clean tone too..
Ive been lookin up at guitars here and there...and I'd say my budget is around 10-12k, with a bit extra for a amp, around 2-2.5k
Ive looked at the Ibanez GRG270, and the GRG170DX, and both look pretty promising
If i got something from out of india, i was thinking of a Dean VX/ZX/MLX
theyre pretty similar, but theyve got zebra pickups, with give a sort of muddy distortion, which im not sure i want.
one guitar that caught my eye was the Unnamed S-Series guitar as bajaao.com
for 9k, with a floyd rose, it seems good, but since theres no real manufacturer, theres no guarantee that it'lll be good
I live in Pune, and as of what i know, there's just 3 decent guitar shops here,..
Mehendale in ABC, and Awaaz and Music Palace in camp.
Anyone know any other shops here ?
Also if anyone's selling any second-hand guitars or amps, let me know..
From the sort of stuff i play, i dont think i really need a locking tremolo, but does a floyd bridge help palm muting in any way ? does it put out a better sound ?
any advice is appreiciated,
and yeah , you can call me a newb, coz i really dont know that much..
