I started playing electric guitar a little over a year ago and now I am coming up with neat little riffs and solos that i would like to record. However, My amp and microphone aren't quite doing the job. I play mostly metal, some alternative and rock. and I have a crappy SG copy (although it it licensed by Gibson) but I plan on buying an epiphone when I have the money. In use with other amps my guitar doesn't sound that bad. But anyways, What gear would you recommend for me? I'm looking for inexpensive gear, but I know it probably won't be cheap and don't plan on buying immediately. any suggestions?
