    I found an ESP MV-200 in my old place, no need to buy a new guitar!

    What amp should I hook up, our local music store doesn't stock orange I don't think. Looks like we have vox, line 6, marshall, all the more common brands

    Go with a Vox Valvetronix. Good sounds and options at a good price.

    just won a marshall shredmaster on an impulse buy. fuck. need to start playing again.

    Update? Want to know how this sounds as I'm considering one as well. I'm in love with my Bluesbreaker V1 pedal (best overdrive for humbuckers that I've tried yet).

    Also anyone have any Jazzmaster recs? I just sold my Gibson 333 and am kinda curious about replacing it with a Jazzmaster. Don't think I want to go vintage (I mean, I do, but can't afford it), and custom shop is just as expensive, but how do the Americans and Japanese compare to good vintage ones?

    They both compare fairly well. The price/quality ratio is probably slightly in favour of a Japanese model if you're buying from Europe, and a US model (AVRI) if you're buying in the US.

    The weakness in the Japanese models is the pickups but there are lots of good aftermarket replacements available.

    I'd go Thin Skin Vintage from some place like Wildwood Guitars or get a custom Jazzmaster from someone like K-Line Guitars

    Sold my CS-2 on ebay because I never really got along with it. Replaced it with the Diamond Compressor and holy fuck! Thanks, Johnny Marr! Highly recommended.

    As for the Shredmaster, also recommended. With the Bluesbreaker and the Shredmaster, I can really dial in some insane Marshall tones from the Two Rock. Really cool.

    sorry, yeah, the shredmaster does exactly that. the contour is very nice. its a very warm to harsh sound. sounds like my jcm 800. very THICK without fuzzy

    I have a bunch.

    Guitars:
    1992 Hamer USA P90 Special
    1995 Hamer USA T51 (Telecaster) with an SD 59 neck humbucker
    1981 Hamer USA Prototype
    1991 Hamer USA Centaura, sparkly red shred machine
    Yamaha CG151C Classical
    70s Alvarez solid top acoustic
    Soultool Supertele

    The only amp I have is a Tech21 Trademark 60 (excellent amp) and I don't own any effects since my Crybaby broke. I use EB Superslinkys and heavy pics. Preferably Dunlops.

    2001 Les Paul Standard Plus (flametop) I bought it new.

    The amp is a Marshall JCM2000 the 1x10 combo with EL84's. I pulled two of the four out to hit the sweet spot without bothering too many neighbors...
