Ok what I have now is a Special limited edtion custom tele.. or something like that yeah its a mouthful but basically its a korean made fender with two dimarzio humbuckers... I also have a Roland mini cube, a podxt live, and a 120W Rogue amp with two 12" speakers. I Just don't feel like Im getting a very good sound. I havnt had a chance to play other guitars much or through other amps but it just feels lacking. Its almost depressing to play.. lol.. Now lately I've been working my butt off and I got about 700 bucks. Im thinking about buying a new electric but I'm not sure what to do about my old one.. Should I sell it? I could also do with an acoustic guitar because I don't own one. If I got a new guitar what would you guys recommend? I've kinda been learning towards a Strat because I want have a versatile guitar. The specific model I have been looking at is the Fender deluxe player's strat. Most of the reviews seem to be good and its within my price range. I mostly play classic rock, blues, and sometimes some heavier stuff. Would this guitar be a good choice? Also what should I do about my amp? Should I sell it also and buy a new one with the remaining money? Or hsould I get an acoustic... man.. so many choices.. I know I'm the only one that can make the final decision but a little input from others would help alot. Also how much money do you think I could get for my current guitar.. I bought it from musicians friend for 500 but it dropped down to 400 a month later. Its still in really good shape besides my rewiring job on the jack.. and a few of the screws look a little rusted but that can be easily fixed.

Well as far as the guitar goes, a Deluxe Strat (I think) would be pretty good since you like to play classic rock, blues, and some heavier stuff. But as far as heavier stuff what do you mean by that, like what kind of heavier stuff...classic metal (Maiden, Judas Priest) that would work, I think because Maiden's guitarists use strats. But if you mean like death metal it might not sound as good through the Fender, but who knows, you could always put new pickups in anyways.

Now, for the amp. Both are pretty decent from what I know of them. That you should choose because it depends on what kind of music you are leaning more towards playing. The POD can cover all of that but maybe you should get a PA system or a keyboard amp or something clean to play the POD through since it is an amp modeler.

It is your choice to keep or sell your current guitar/amp or whatever it all may depend on what you end up wanting to buy. Think it out and make a good choice and best of luck with buying your new gear.

Let us know what you choose. wink.gif

Well what I guess I meant by heavier stuff is more of the classic metal, but I am trying to be more open minded about music.. hehe well anyways im going to go to guitar center next sunday and try a bunch of different guitars and amps, hopefully I can find something within my budget and still be content smile.gif
