Well myself, I could go a couple of new pedals. A Teese wah would be nice, and I want a E.H worm. A VH-140 would be nice too, Santa.

But I'll probably be buying myself a Crate GT-50 for the same purposes(rehearsing).

Maybe a powered pedalboard or something to clean up the look of my floor setup would be nice, or one of those folding rack cases for all my guitars. A nice condenser mic would be great too.

Cause most people dont actually know what a BBE is.

Im not sure what I would like. Either a TC Electronics G-Force or a Lexicon PCM series processor would be nice. Although since Santa dosent know what the fuck those are, ill have to wait until tax time for one of those.

Haha lol I figured that was it Valtiel.

BBE's are just EQ's for lazy people.

TCE Gforces rule! The guy from psycroptic runs one into his JCM2000's poweramp for his sound.

I'm going to ask for the 3rd year in a row for an acoustic guitar. I won't get it, but i'll just see how long it will never take me to get one.

I'm thinking about setting up the process to buy an SL2H USA Soloist thouogh. Woot. Probably goin down to the music shop today to ask about it.

Guitar center wanted 2000 for one ordered from the manufacterer. I didn't tell him to fuck off, but i came kinda close. I definately don't ese myself giong back and paying what is actually the STORE price for that guitar. Fuck them.

This other guy said hed give me 10% of musiciansfriend price. THATS what i'll follow up on.

I'd like a decent acoustic-electric with a easy action like those Ibanez Talmans. I'd also like some EMG's.

Not a DAMN thing wrong with it haha. Maybe have cranked it to a gigable volume maybe 5 or 6 times. Its just way too stout for me. If i had a band i would most definately keep it and have never gotten the 150 unless i was dead set on recording.

But the 300 is definately for the musician who has drums, vocals, and bass and another guitar to compete against. Sure it can get loud but its got that great high quality head room at regular band playing volumes that just rules.

Since i live in an apartment........ haha with no band.......

Although i can still use the 150 later on to play gigs or jam with a band, just NOT to the FULL extent that i could with the 300.

That sux. The KE2 looks pretty bad ass. I wish the RR was 24 fret, or i'd probably be getting it. I'm looking into buying myself a usa soloist custom built. I talked to guitar center about this and got a quote. I dont' think i'll buy it from the they want fucking store price. They can go fuck themselves with that.

Seems every year i buy my own presents. last year i bought myself a 1500 dollar elec drumset. Best buy ever. haha

Haha, I'm suprised you're not dealing with the Jackson Custom Shop yourself. But apparently it looks like the Music City store in the state of Virginia (though I dunno how far you live from it) is an authorized Jackson dealer as well.

I love electronic drumsets. For $1,500 it seems you got a pretty badass one! Have you ever hooked your up to a practice amp with the distortion turned on? You can totally sound like The Berzerker or any hardcore techno DJ that way.

But yeah, looks like I'm going to get my KE2 sometime next year. Which sucks, there was a Ferrari Red one on Ebay with a reverse headstock and all the trimmings a little while ago and it got sold for an excellent price.

Well i didn't mean CUSTOM CUSTOM jackson.. haha But basically a jackson that I WANTED...

Yeah that link you posted is near where my parents live. Mayb ei'll go up there and talk to them. Although i'm sure they will want more than i'm willing to pay for a fucking usa soloist. I will not pay over 1600-1700 for a soloist. Will not do it.

I've hooked my drumset a few times up to my Crate bv-300 haha. I bought a 2nd hand Roland TDK-6 on ebay for about 1200 bucks. Didn't come with pedals or a throne though. I like playing it while hooking my laptop to my alexis mixer which my drum set goes to. That way i can play music from my laptop (or sometimes record) and drum to it.

haha I feel the same way about my 400W cab. I'm not even in a band and don't plan on gigging in the foreseeable future, but I have this monstrous Mode 4 cab that I use with my Engl 60W head. It moves so much air and gets so loud it's unnecessary, plus a bitch to transport. So I finally decided to sell it for 450 bucks and pick up a Framus 2x12" with v30's for 300$. Plus I think I'll like the sound of v30's more, so for the time being, fuck 4x12's.

Well you shouldn't need the mt2 with the marshall jcm for starters, just a boost pedal of some sort. For pickups I can recommend the EMG 81, or the Dimarzio X2N.. they are both very high output pickups, good for death metal.

You shouldn't need a pedal with a JCM2000TSL period. It's a fucking brutal amp! Trey uses a ProCo rat rack unit(same as the ProCo rat Deuce tone nowadays) in front of a JCM900, but that's a lower gain amp than the TSL. So you really don't even need any supplementary distortion out of a TSL, I've played one several times and it could do anything brutal very well.

Yes, after ditching that pedal(what made you want to use it with the amp is beyond me) try new pickups. If you want a more Morbid Angel esque sounds then active pickups(EMG's) are not for you, and the X2N is awesome, hotter than all the other pickups out there(unless BN pickups are above 510mV, which I doubt). But almost too hot for some, it may be a little too tight and bright if you're into replicating something closer to oldschool fat warm MA sounds.

Also look into the Tonezone as if you like Trey's solos, you love the vanhalen-ish "brown sound"! It's very hot, great for death metal and sounds unique and vowelly for leads, it's mid and bass thick, not excessive treble and very clear. They work best in trebley guitars but you will have no problem with it using your Beast.

As for the neck, a Dimarzio PAF Pro.
