Whew, Rockerdud3 Your having tons of fun trying to figure out what you want, aren't you.

I remember you said in your first few posts you didn't really want the fender? Well I personally play an american standard strat, and love it. You might want to try out the MIM strats, they are great as well. (If you don't know, MIM means Made in Mexico)

However, if you love the schecter, I say go for the schecter. Like I said before, instead of the artist limited edition, definatly save a few more bucks and get the elite, or classic c-1 schecters. Those are great.

P.S. You won't find any good amp for 70 bucks new. You'll have to save some money for that as well. Go tube, but if you are financially challenged (like me) then just get a decent SS like a roland cube 30.

At first I didn't want a fender because they are expancive, but now that I came up with this good Idea, I like them,

I am asking for a Fender Standard fat Strat for Christmas, and for my b-day I normally get $100, and I get $20 a month, so by my-bday, maybe a little after, I will have enough for a peavy bandit 80w tube amp, ($380) and my dad, said he would pay half, so I only need to ay $190 (I just need $35 more) and if I get $100 for my b-day, I would have, about $150 (with my b-day money, and with my money I get evry month) so then what would I buy? A strap, and a cable, and a stand, a gig bag, and I geuss all the accessories that are exceptible.

And If I dont get the guitar for Christmas, I will ask for it for my B-Day, and if I dont get it then, then I will need to save up about $100 more, so I got it all planned out,

The Peavey Bandit isn't a tube amp. Get a Fender Blues Jr. used. Very good amp.

Yea...the bandit is ss....

Peavey does make a great tube amp though. the Peave classic 30's are nice. The fender blues jr are great as well. I want to get a nice rivera tube off ebay or something. Maybe a carvin mts.

He did? My first post ever here I asked him and he said it was a crappy solid state.
Maybe he meant it was supposed to try (key word there) sound like a tube.

Haha. Rockerdud3, now the only thing in your way is waiting 4 months for the money. I know how that feels. it sucks lol.

I got had played my acoustic for a year when I got 600 dollars out of nowhere. Then with some of my own money, I bought the guitar I've wanted my whole life.

Yes PyPo323, it does suck, I just cant wait!!! Well, for the guitar, if I get it for Christmas, it will be 3 more months till I get the guitar, but then, I just need 55 more dollars till I can buy half the Fender Blonde Blues Jr. with insurance ($38.50) and my dad said he would pay for half of all my electric guitar stuff, so total, I just have to pay, like $210.00! for a 15w Tube Amp! lol So, it will take around 3 more months to raise $55 so if I get the guitar, on Christmas, then I will also be able to buy the tube amp! lol, And, donations would be excepted, (just in case I dont get the guitar for Christmas, or my Birthday)

He mixed up. I checked the website and its a TransTube - tube emulation. It isn't the real thing. I would go for the Peavey Classic 30 - it costs about the same, but it is a tube amp.

no, I am going to get the Fender Blonde Blued Jr. tube amp, cause I am just using it for mainly practice, so it dosn't need to be that high of a wattege, so the Fender Blonde Blues Jr. 15w Tube amp, will works fine for me,

The Blues Jr. is loud. But they made volume knobs for a reason. And Major Tom Attenuators.

lol, so 15w is loud? My friend he said the volume at 10 is very loud, and he dosn't really know anything about electric guitars, and amps, he has a Yamaha electric, and I dont know what kind of amp, but when he said its loud at 10, does that mean 10w? Or Just 10 volume, and would it be loud on all amps, or are all amps diffrent? Like, on some 10 might be loud, and on some 10 might be quiet, so I was wondering, if 10 volume, is as high as you can make it, does that mean its a 10w amp? How does the wattage system work?

If he doesn't know anything about amps, he probably has a 10 watt SS amp. That is about as loud as a 1 watt tube amp. Tube amps are generally louder than SS. My amp is SS and it's 15 watts, and its not loud. I play at 6 regurlarly without a pedal hooked up. If you do get the Blues Jr., PM Major Tom about making an attenuator for you. They only cost about 35 bucks for them. The closest thing besides that would to buy a 200 one that does the same thing.
