that wasnt my point dude

i got your point
Thanks for all the suggestions. There are lots of new ideas to consider. And yeah some things i should have mentioned.
The way i had planned to split the 30,000
18,000 for the guitar
12,000 for the amp
and the extra 5000 if it is absolutely essential like if i am getting a really good guitar buy paying like 2k more(you get the idea).
I had forgotten about some of the accessories i will need so maybe the extra 5000 will go into them :( like a nice hardcase, and a nice locking strap.
I wanted the pedals because switching the effects on and off on the amp will be a pain in the arse while playing live so i will need some kind of foot controller if i dont buy pedals. Which brings the point that i want the amp loud enough to play live in a small place. I thought 30w will be enough?
And about the second hand goods, where can i find them?? I live in Nagpur which is very(stress on very) bad with regards to guitars. There is only one good shop which isnt very well stocked. So i have decided i'm going to travel to buy my new guitar and have decided on Mumbai. Some suggestions in this regards?? And also i wanted to tell i have made these preliminary choices on the basis of the prices mentioned on the Furtados website.
I wanted to be able to try the stuff before i buy.
And yeah another important thing i left out I "dont" want a tremolo on my guitar especially a floyd rose one. I hate those.
That is is the reason i left out ibanez. Cheap indonesian basswood on the gio series, cheapo floyd rose tremolo's. Thanks but no thanks. Same with the Esp LTD series under 20k guitars. I didnt see any ibanez s series within the budget i mentioned.
And yeah i know the difference between the three kinds on amps, Tubes, solid states and hybrids. Tubes are full vacuum tubes like the laney cub series. Solid states are fully digital. Hybrids are like the valvetronix series they have a tube in the pre amp section. This brings up an issue i heard about with the current vox vt+ models, there seems to be some noise and snare drum hiss issues with it. I had considered laney but then it was too vintage for my tastes(i am saying this on the basis of youtube demos) i am talking about the cub8 here. Is the vox advt series still available?? I heard some great stuff about it.
And if i say i prefer rosewood fretboards it is assumed i mean over all other fretboard woods available.
For the suggestion of increasing my budget to 50k. Not possible. I know a tube amp is the best but then i dont have the cash. And the current modelling ones like the vyper series get pretty close to the originals.
Also some suggestions on where to buy? Bargaining? What stuff to expect as freebies(guitar case, cables etc..)?? and other finer things while buying a guitar?? How much discount to expect??
go with vypyr 30 then and cort kxq1 try that guitar you will fall in love with it
Yeah thanks i have heard a lot of positive reviews about the vypyr series. The cort seems good, and i'm surprised it has coil tap?? Can you confirm it is coil tap or is it actually coil split like the other guitars, because i have never seen coil tap on a production guitar.
no its a real coil tap hz pups in that guitar are single coil pups cort combined them in their factory to give them a humbucker sound
so i guess its coil aint split i never tried hz's though i tried my friend's cort kx1q with blackouts ahb2 pups .....................*** man ***
its just.5 mm thicker than a rg wizard ii neck its better than my 25k rga32
go for it and thank me later all the other guitars in that range are crap both in looks and playability
Sorry for the double post earlier... I just noticed
my connection blows
vypyr 30 is decent
so is the cort guitar...like i suggested earlier cort will give you best features for your budget
and obviously you need pedals dude... but i dunno... i find performing with a processor much more convenient...
but then again i need versatility every time
i guess you now have a lot of information at hand.. so now go according to what you are comfortable with
however i have a question
why do you require a hard tail? bad experience with tremolo?
If you are buying a guitar in mumbai
then you can shop at furtados, musicians mall, shalu (cst side)
or bhargavas, sardar flutes, singh instruments (linking road side)
or segno, auddi (new bombay)
Note: there is a bhargavas cst side as well and vice versa for musicians mall
plus smaller outlets of each of these in various places
Most people are gonna tell you to go to furtados or musicians mall...
but i reckon you may get a better discount at bhargavas or segno.. the guy at auddi is brilliant but its really too far to bother
(but you also have to keep in mind their stock... most places deliver on order so plan your trip accordingly)
Segno and Auddi wil definitely not have those in stock
so i guess first preference should be bhargavas(for price) or furtados(for pure selection)
however i do recommend making a trip to both musicians mall and furtados if you come to mumbai... it'll be a good experience
and you know that vypyr 30 and cort are decent how

keep this in mind all the esp ltd's and low-mid range ibbys are manufactured by cort they just put a ibanez/esp tag on it
first try the cort maam then say that its decent
the neck and the finish of that guitar=s e x
What Escapes Me | My Band - Indian Music Bands
ok don't watch the other vids if you don't want but go to this page and listen to empty signs
its recorded with a cort kxq1 into a pod x3 if you don't jizz i will change my name
listen to the tone
Wow deepsal do have a deal or something with cort?? jk though, nice guitar i will surely try it when i go to buy guitars. But one point though the EMG pickups dont have good reviews to put it lightly. People have told me to avoid EMG passives. Anyway though tone is subjective to an individual. Maybe i'll like it, so atleast i'll try it.
The reason i'm avoiding tremolos is that the tremolos on these lower range guitars arent really good. They go out of tune if you bend a little hard or if a string breaks and they are a nightmare to tune. The higher end one's like those from ibanez the ones with the zero point system are good but they are out of my budget.
