Birthday Funds

Ok heres the dealio. I've got a birthday coming up (and Christmas shortly following) and I'm going to ask for funding towards something...but what?

Here are some of the options I have considered:
Boss GT-8
ENGL E530 Pre amp

Feel free to comment on these options or suggest new options.

I would get the Ibanez, but that's me. That model is pretty sweet,... neck-thru, edge trem, lots of goodies.

Well you see I don't really 'need' any of them. Its just that all of these things are looking mighty good to me right now (especially that RR ) and I'm trying to find reasons why I should pick one over the other.

I bought the Ibanez RGT42DX about 1 month and a half ago. Couldn't be happier. Sold a guitar I owned for 9 years to get all the funds I needed for it. Definately a sweet , Sweet guitar. I say go for it.

well go by this.

What do you think would help diversify your setup/make your send better most?

Well right now I guess I've narrowed it down to the Ibanez and the GT-8 but Its like comparing apples and oranges so to speak. I mean both would be fun to mess around with. Guitar wise I don't have anything against my guitars aside from the fact that the action is uncomfortably high but I can't seem to find the right size of allen wrench to adjust that. I've also got somewhat decent tone right now but its very 1 dimensional. I've got a decent distortion but I don't have anything with a decent clean tone. I just like alot of the unique things that the gt-8 brings to the table.

well get the gt-8 then. It is possible to use your amps pre-amp in conjuction with the gt-8, and the clean pre-amps on the '8 are amazing.
I have the '6, and it's the best piece of gear I have.

I think that that's what I'm going to end up getting.

Good choice! If you ever decide to upgrade amps and stuff, the gt-8 will still prove useful with a tube amp w/ effects loop. Also, the direct to PA "if all else fails" possibility is a plus, if you gig and run into some amp trouble. As I have learnt, the learning curve on this thing is steep, but within a month you should have a good hold on it and all of its features. If you have the chance to get it, don't pass it up- it will complement any other gear you happen to have.

I'm with the guys suggesting the GT-8. I don't have one (just a shitty Digitech) but I know others that do and they love it.

Yea I tried out the GT-8 last night with the RG and I'm definately getting the GT-8 I would get it just for the harmonizer but I also liked all of the sorta wacky novelty type stuff like the synth guitar and the auto riff(it sounded like the future ). And the rotory sounded cool. Much better than my RP-200
