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'!
