well My current guitar... ahmm is Mavis MST- 600. I don't have any Amps at the moment but I'm planning to buy Ibanez amplifier.
I play Japanese rock music or any rock and also Instrumental guitar solos. as long as there is lead solos on it.
My favorite guitar players are:
"Masahiro Aoki" or Godspeed from G5 Project
"A2C" From Mintjam
I am a bedroom player :)
Hello Kurt! Just saw that you live in Manila.
Can you get ahold Line 6, Digitech or BOSS Pedals?
I believe a multi-fx pedal like the Line 6 HD500x, Digitech RP500 or RP1000, and BOSS GT-100 can get you there.
You will definitely enjoy the benefits of multi-fx pedals. Let's say it will give lots of options for multiple genres, and your creativity.
I wish you the best Kurt!
