Hey TTK I've always loved your videos and reviews and learned a great deal from them. I had a question….should i replace my boss gt-10 with individual effects pedals?? I live in India and effects pedals r a bit costly here so i just needed an expert opinion. ya another thing I use esp ltd ec-50 but I want a better guitar. Should I go for schecter hellraiser c1 or gibson lespaul studio faded….or shall I buy a cort cr280 and put emgs(81/85) in it(so that I can save bucks)???…
[I use a China made tube amp which is fairly nice. My budget is nearly $899. I mainly play metal and sometimes blues too & i love clean tones.]
Thanks in advance

cheers \m/

Hi Sourya.  The GT10 is a good unit.  If stomp boxes are costly – why not keep what you have?  Pedals, in my honest opinion are fun … they're like lego for guitarists.  You can mix em, match em, ditch em, trade em, etc.  Easy to move, transport, etc.  But – if your budget doesn't permit – stick with what you have.  That Boss unit is pretty good.  


As for the guitars – As much as I hate to say and admit this – the Gibson will probably be your best investment.  I don't know why the world spins, nor do I know why Gibson has such a high resale value, … but they do.  So, if you're going for a pure investment – the Gibson is the guitar you should go with.  With that said – if you like another guitar better – than buy that guitar.  Cort is a great Les Paul alternative.  Very good, quality made instrument, but expect little / no resale value on it.  As for Schecter – I'm not a huge fan of Schecter.  Doesn't mean they're bad … just means they don't make me go WOW, like other guitars.  (But, I do own a few, so I must like them a little bit :-)


Hope that helps.  Thanks for stoping by, and keep a rockin'!
