Ok so the trend on YouTube for the past few years has been this idea that you can get a hell of a lot of guitar for US$1,000. I started thinking What if you had $1,000 for a guitar, $1,000 for an amp, and $1,000 for pedals. So, let's have some fun. Let's just imagine that we're all building a complete rig from scratch. Your picks, strings, cables, strap/locks, slide, and pedalboard are all covered. You already have them. What you need, is a guitar, amp, and pedals. Your budget is 3,000 whatever your currency is. (Americans use the dollar, Brits use the Pound, Europeans use the Euro, etc). Let's not get caught up in exchange rate. Your budget is 3 Grand, and you can spend your money any way you like. I'll start with the obvious MT15 and cabinet which I believe is right there at a grand I'll get a 535Q Crybaby, MXR M234 stereo chorus, BOSS TU2 tuner, a good boost and a bluesy OD, and then a reverb and a mild slap back Delay. Along with a good classic rock distortion. I'm not sure so, I'm going to say these items will run me around say $750 Next, I'll buy the SE SC245, and put all of my remaining money into upgrading it. Tuners, pickups, nut, and whatever else I can afford. What rig would you guys build? And yes, you're allowed to ditch the amp all together and buy a computer with monitors, software, DAW, and whatever else you need. But, you can not break the budget of three thousand (insert your local currency) While I'm at it, if you have a really really crappy currency like, IDK, the Peso or something where it doesn't buy anything, just explain how increasing your budget is roughly equivalent to everybody else. And please, let's not get too caught up in the issue of currency.
