I finally have enough money for a new guitar but I'm not sure if I want an Epiphone Vintage G-400
or a Samick TR-2 Torino
. The Epi is around $400 and the Samick I can get for $319. When comparing all specs the Samick seems like the better buy for the money. I dunno how good the pups on the epi are, but the Samick has duncan designed pups which are supposed to be pretty decent. I just want to gather some opinions on which seems better.
On another note after I buy my new guitar I will have another $200 by the end of the summer. I am thinkin on how to spend it and the following are what I thought of.
1.Mod my strat copy...New neck, Black hardware(Black pickguard, black knobs, black tremolo cover), New tuners, New Carvin AP-11 Pickups.
2.Buy a Carvin SX200C 100 watt 2x12 solid state amp.
3.Buy another guitar like an Agile AL2500 or a Schecter Damien-6
4.Save up for a small tube combo...like a Peavey Classic 30 or a Fender Hot rod Deluxe
I dunno If I would need a tube amp since I won't be gigging anytime soon. Right now am leaning towards buying the Samick and then Modding my Strat Copy.
Any suggestions on both or either issues will be greatly appreciated!
