I don’t think all Gibson guitars are overpriced but some are IMO.
As someone mentioned, a nice Classic LP for less than two grand is a fantastic fiddle for a price that I can justify to myself and my serious hobby.
On the other hand signature models like Slash I think there is a degree of name...
Thanks. i heard them SS and they sound teriffic, but I am a bit concerned regarding the alleged reliabilty record. I do take those complain with the grain of salt but still can't ignore them. My classic 50 is very reliable but would like to have another option next to it.
Up to 1000 Euro (buying new if possible).
Hendrix, Floyd, Purple, RHCP, Offspring, Mayer, Whitesnake, Nickelback, 3 Doors down, Kravitz, The Cult, . . . Not looking to replicate just to have the most versatile and improve with some pedals.
Not big gigs, mostly 300 people.
Need some help with the choice, so hope you could chip in with some opinions. I use Peavey classic 50 mostly with pedals for gigs but have some money to bay another amp..
I was looking into some Fender, Marshall, Blackstar amps.
Fender I like Blues Deluxe, somehow imo...
RG 550 is the one of the best Ibanez guitars ever made. Edge is (subjective opinion) the best trem and for certain music it is just a fantastic tool. It will serve you for many, many years. Amazing workhorse. This is from the guy that does not like basswood anymore.
In general, IBanez, again...
