Ok, I was in two bands. Mercury , a prog band in which I sang and played bass. And Space Machine and the Satanic Mohicans , a drum, bass duo with spacey synths. Well, I just recently quit Mercury and the other one is really just an experiment thing. So, im gettin into this stoner rock thing and Im gettin together a band with some friends that will be a stoner rock band. However I will not play bass in this band , i will play guitar. Heres where my question comes in. I need a new guitar, mine is in the last stages of its life, its dying. Its an Ibanez Gio , and its terrible. My amp is a ****ty Ibanez 10w practice amp. I need an amp too. Ive been looking at the SXs on Rondomusic.net and I like some of em . The only thing about them is color option, not many choices. But anyways, do you guys have any suggestions about what to get, Im into anything thats affordable, sounds good , and looks cool ? Also , what kinda amp do you suggest for practice and gigging thats also affordable ? Hows about some cheap, but good sounding pedals?? Thanks folks.
