  • New guitar or amp?

    I am thinning the herd on some pedals I haven't used in over a year and am going to by something musical with it. I was looking at getting an Epiphone Casino or possibly a Vox AC15. I currently have a fender super champ 600 and a Hot Rod Deluxe for amps an for guitars I have most of the basic types, Les Paul, Strat, Tele, SG, and Mustang. I have a bass and am borrowing a really nice bass from my brother. My favorite bands and tone I tend to go for are Smashing pumpkins, Beatles, Pink Floyd, Nirvana ect. Any input would be appreciated.

    Yep, round out your collection with a semi hollow!

      My understanding is that the casino is a full hollow body am I mistaken?

    Oh, yeah. That's fine.

      I'm a fan of both the Epiphone Casino and the Vox AC15 - in fact, I own one of each... so I'm probably not the right guy to ask. If forced to pick one or the other, I'd probably say "get the Casino." I absolutely love mine.

        I am thinking about 500-700.

          With what you have, you'll get a larger variety of sounds by getting the Vox vs getting the guitar

        I'd probably vote with the vox.  Then again, I would probably get rid of the SG and get a Casino instead.

        Get a used ac15 twin. All the glory of the ac15 but in an ac30 box with 2 12's. I just got one for cheap ($400 on craigslist) you will get a broader range of tones adding that amp then adding a casino. If you look hard enought you might be able to have both for $750-850.

            yeah, a casino through an ac15 is a good pair.

          Mine is a 2000 SG gothic special. Maybe it is just the thickness of the neck. It just handles drop tunings really well.

            I'd get the Casino. I wasn't crazy about my AC15.
