    My wish list...

    I've decided rather then tuning my car, I'm going to put my money into something I can hold on to for a long time and wont require a lot of maintenance. Although this is a guitar discussion, I'll include the gear I'll be buying within the next year ( before the guitar).

    Ibanez SAS32EX (Blk) modified with a DiMarzio DP161 humbucker on the bridge for clear lows with and a DP165 humbucker on the neck. I'll also change the trem to a Floyd Rose Pro for smaller string spacing and I'll need it because I like to beat the FUCK out of the bar. I could easily just buy Satrianis JS100 and be just as happy and be close to the sound I'm looking for, but I'd rather settle for something I pieced together myself even if it costs me a few more dollars.

    The gear: Crate FW412B cab with a BV120H head for starters and eventually integrate something like a behringer BXR1800H bass head running to a 2x12cabinet separate from the crate. I'll do this so I can separate my tones for better SQ. ( The behringer is only an example because its decent power and When I get around to piecing this together, I'll be testing different combos rather then buying some random bass head because it just might sound like shit with the blue voodoo.

    Honestly dude, save up and buy quality. I modded a ton of cheap guitars and now they're just kinda sitting around... only one of the 'cheapies' ever sees regular play, and ironically it's the only one that's still totally stock.

    Quality especially shows on the amp side of things... if you want to practice at home, buy a nice guitar (because it'll inspire you to pick it up and play), but if you want to play out, buy a good amp. A mediocre guitar can sound great through a good amp, while an amazing guitar will usually sound awful through a bad one.

    Spend the money and spend it once.

    Instead of a Crate BV look at a used Peavey 5150.
