I've moved to Canada for a year and stupidly didn't take any of my guitars with me. Now I'm looking for something in the 400-500CAD range to keep me going. I'm looking at the Ibanez SA260FM at the moment as it's pretty cheap and seems like a decent guitar. I'm not too fussed about the pickups, as long as they're fairly decent. I would just change them when I got back to the UK anyway. I just thought there must be someone on this forum who has one. What can you tell me about weight/feel/how well it stays in tune etc.
Also I may as well ask about a decent (if there is one) 20watt (ish) amp.
Thanks in advance.

I've always had a soft spot for really good female vocalists. So balls to all this guitar stuff, what's your favourite female vocalists. A few of my favourites include Whitney Houston and Tonni Braxton. Some of their stuff just gives me goosebumps. Incredible voices.

We seriously need one of these. Premiership season is only 3 weeks away and I seriously can't wait. Hopefully Man City will crumble as usual and finish around 8th place. Hull are seriously buggered. I've never seen such bad transfer activity and they are serious contenders to finish bottom.
Man United, despite losing Ronaldo and Tevez, have looked pretty strong in their friendlies so far. Owen has looked to be the buy of the transfer window. All he needs to do is stand infront of the goal which I'm fairly sure he's capable of. On a free as well so no one can complain. Still reckon they could do with buying David Silva, someone with proven quality. Liverpool also look strong, so will be interesting to see what unfolds throughout the season. Unfortunately for Arsenal they're lacking cover and consistent quality and will probably struggle for a top 4 finish this season. Chelsea haven't really been that active but still obviously have enough quality to challenge.
It's also great to see Newcastle in such a mess. It must be terrible for the fans, but the club is run so badly it was bound to happen. They've been on a downward spiral for years now. Viduka is now a free agent, they've lost Owen, and now Martins is gone. So that leaves them with what? Caroll, Ameobi and Smith? Anyone else? Serious alarm bells.
Away from England Real Madrid have seriously slowed down their transfer activity. Don't reckon they'll set the world alight like many think. Yeah they have the indiviudual talent, but can they come out and play like the current Barcelona team? I don't think. Although Ronaldo finally got his first goal for Real. Penalty of course which he won by, yep, diving. So glad he's gone.
So yeah everyone get chatting about football, any level, any country. Go.

I see this forum is dominated by guitar driven music, which isn't surprising really. Surely though there are some members who like a bit of hip-hop? I'm not talking about stuff in the charts and on the radio, which is almost always awful. I'm talking old school rap as well as newer artists. What albums do you consider classics?
I absolutely love NaS - Illmatic. It is easily the best rap album ever. Everything from the beats to the lyrics are brilliant. Other albums that I really like are Wu-Tang Clan - Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), El-P - Fantastic Damage, Non Phixion - The Future is Now. Then you've got old school rap such as Chubb Rock, Pete Rock, Sugarhill Gang etc.
My friend just lent me a CD by a guy called DJ Spinbad, who is bloody incredible. He basically remixes loads of famous tracks (such as NaS - Halftime/Sugarhill Gang - Rappers Delight/Run DMC - Walk This Way) and blends them all in together. This guy is seriously great. He must be using something like 4 decks at a time. The album is called Fabriclive 14 and I strongly recommend it to anyone.
Any other fans?
