Yeah, the brokerage fees & duty probably won't be pretty. I forgot about the Vox Valvetronix - I tried a bunch of those and really liked them.Amp isn't too bad for a beginner... check out the Roland Cube and the Vox Valvetronix too.
Lol. I wouldn't trust me to do more than change strings and set intonation, tbh. (Or at least, I wouldn't trust me to set up someone else's guitar.) Yeah, they'll let you plug in and play - at least, I've never been told no and I'm a terrible guitarist. Or usually someone will ask if you want them to play something - which is what I did when I was starting out and couldn't play more than 3 or 4 chords.Hey Jane - wanna set up my guitar when I buy it?
Thanks for the suggestions, sounds like you have some experience with these stores. Will they let me plug in and play, to test out all the guitars?
...if you can get to a long and mcquade store by the end of this month, you can take advantage of their six months no financing sale, which really makes a purchase like this painless. they will also give you a free set up, as well as reliable warranties.Wow, thanks for the fast replies guys :rockon:
I'll check out some local stores, I didn't even know about sherwood and L&M. I'll also look on craigslist and ebay for a used MIM (made in mexico?) strat, my budget can't go over 350 though.
What are your general thoughts on the Line 6 amp? I've been reading very mixed reviews... I'll check out the cube, the vox seems too pricey for me.
