My son has been asking for a nice electric guitar for a while now. I've been reluctant as he tends to lose interest quickly and move on. I found a schecter c1, micro dark and orange 1x8 cab stupid cheap local so I bought it. I kept the amp setup and gave him my cube 30 but i also told him to get to work or I'll sell it all. Shouldnt have too much trouble getting my money back. My actual point was that I've heard him practice a couple of times and it makes me chuckle to myself justustening to it. Makes me think about what my parents and my brothers had to endure while I was forging my way through guitar 101! My first amp was a bastardized fender head and music man 4x12. Mom forbid me to buy it but I did anyway and here we are 40 years later still playing and now my son has entered the gas chamber!
