    a good gibson out of the box is 100% better than a good new fender out of the box. set ups are horrendous on new fenders.

    Sources tell me the current 2013 Gibsons are incredible, only the reissues of course. I love Gibson. Pio, don't get a solid state amp. They are for plebs.

    if youre on a budget, those arent too shabby at all. However, i forget that Piob probably isnt on a budget. in that case...

    Fender amps are only good with single coils, imo. 6L6 and 6V6 tubes pushed sound muddy with humbuckers. Essentially fender amps are made for Fender guitars.

    I am on a budget. I have 10k worth of bagpipes I've not played much in a few years.

    P-90's is a different story. I still find 6L6's to not sound great dirty. EL-34's all of the way. KT66 is a good midpoint.

    Also, the best humbuckers sound very much like p-90's due to the mismatched coils.

    If you semi-pros/long time hobbyists can't even decide on a pickup how's a noob to pick a single guitar he'll be satisfied with?

    Also, those Vox have a tube power circuit.

    i dont think so, I have both fenders and gibson, be it I grew up on gibsons, every fender I've got new in the past few years have required work on the frets (minor leveling, or even smoothing), we're not talking about squiers, but an american strat. My jazzmaster was ok though. All the recent gibsons (I'll save you the talk about the richlite garbage) are plek'd which does make a difference in my experience down the line.

    a bit

    I'd agree with this.



    Having said that, I think the Vox would be ideal for Pio. In 2 years, if he plays with some regularity, he can upgrade.
