I was planning to buy a guitar+amp under rs 30000 and i may be able to stretch it to 5000 more if it is absolutely essential. Here are some guitars i wish to considered Epiphone SG Special Greg Bennett Avion AV3 Greg Bennett Torino TR3 Epiphone SG 310 Epiphone LP 100 And the amps i wish to consider Vox VT20+ Peavey vypyr 30 Roland cube 20XL Line6 Spider IV Please comment on the above and also recommend any other guitars or amps that i should consider. I play mostly rock which includes metal and heavy rock. I have a bluesy side too which i sometimes like to explore. The sounds that i need from my guitar are mostly similar to the bands like metallica, guns n' roses, iron maiden, dire straits, megadeath, pink floyd etc. About guitar wood i dont like the tone of the cheap basswoods that the guitars in this price range use. I prefer Mahogany,Alder or similar wood for the body and for the fretboard i prefer rosewood. And a query for the effects units, should i buy individual pedals for each effect or would a processor be better? I like quality so i'd rather spend on multiple pedals which i can play over the years rather than buy a cheap processor now and buy another expensive one later. I wont buy the effects unit with the guitar, if i buy individual pedals i will buy them over a space of an year in 2-3 months gap for each pedal. I want the following effects a nice distortion to play metal stuff, a digital delay, a wah wah pedal, an overdrive or something like the boss blues driver. The amp itself will have some effects like chorus, flanger, reverb so i wont buy pedals for them. So it all boils down like this: I have thought of three options, first option: buy a metal zone after 2 months and then a cry baby after 4 more months and then a DD-3 after 3 more months etc etc Second option: Buy a processor worth 5k-7k after two months Third option: Save money and then buy a processor worth 15k-16k Which would be best? And i need a good quality effects, and in the least time ofcourse. Because the more i delay purchasing effects i will lose because i have to start practicing. Thanks in advance.
