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.
lolwut? thats a bit of an exaggeration dontcha think? Ill just assume youre a gibson guy.
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...
VINTAGE FENDER CHAMP!!!!111
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.
If only Caltex posted in this thread...
ehhhhh i gotta disagree. try a gibson with some P90s thru one.
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.
See? Now I'm all confused and cannot act.
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.
