Hello Fello IGTians,
Well, this is my first ever post in IGT. I have been lurking around for sometime.
So, after some 5yrs of on-n-off playing/learning on acoustic, I have decided to buy an electric. And here I am seeking some advice.
I have been researching the internet/talking to people for over a month and have come up with below inclinations (if you want to call them that)
I have always longed for the les paul shape, but off late digging the strat/double-cuts too. Have heard a lot about the versatility of Ibanez guitars and hence the inclination. Especially, the slick S/SA/SR series. I have small hands so again the wizard neck would be a plus. I would prefer a fixed bridge.
I am also looking at some PRS SE models (if there's one which fits in my budget with an Amp).
Finally, the looks of the instrument are uber important to me. Some wise man said this to me once - "If you love the looks of your guitar, it will make you pick it up and play". Something that is stuck like glue in my head.
I am leaning towards the Orange Micro Terror Head. It is tube-solidstate hybrid and have got great reviews both on the internet and first hand. And a compatible 1x10 or 1x12 cabinet (may be Orange PPC108/112).
What kind of music I listen to/would like myself playing with this gear?
Anything heavy with distortion. Rock, metal, melo-death, industrial. (Bands ranging from the like of Metallica, Iron Maiden, Pink Floyd, Led Zep, Nirvana, LP to hardcore melo-death bands like Insomnium, Kalmah, Be'lakor, Kryptos, CoB)
Around 50K (kind of a one-time dealio, until I venture in to pedals in future)
So, if you guys can suggest me, it would be a great help!
