It depends, what type of sound are you aiming for? Any examples of bands guitar tone you want to emulate?

if you're playin' rock, get a marshall. its the best amp for les pauls in a rock scenerio. they really bring out the full bodied crispyness that les pauls are known for.

I'll go along with that. Check out the late Paul Kossoff (Free). Most of his early stuff was done with a Les Paul Standard and Marshall's. What a sound!

Thx I'm Lookin for A Slash Sound with the Les Paul and An Eddie Van Halen sound with the Sebring because it's a strat style.

I use 4 other guitars an Epiphone Les Paul Special II, really good for the cheapness of it brand new.
I use D'addario Regular strings (.10's to .46) and I think they sound really good.

well for slash...he uses les pauls and marshalls, so that'd be a good place to start. but for van halen, gotta get some flanger, reverb and some delay. but most of van halen's sound came from the player-not so much the gear.

Wow, redstrat actually said something intelligent instead of adding "buy a strat" to it..

marshall's are the best though, but kinda expensive...

Lol, you guys need to be more specific. You do know that not all Marshalls sound the same don't you? And there are lower priced lower quality ones?


It's like someone asking the best way to travel to [inster far away place], and someone saying 'vehicle'.

JCM-800...hows that...but most Marshalls do sound similar. they all have that distinct "marshall" crunch...

Yeah I agree with GS124. The JCM-serie. JCM 800-rock/crunch, JCM 900-metal, JCM 800 + JCM 900 = JCM 2000

Now, that's a good suggestion GS. :D

I really like what I've heard of the JCMs. I might be getting myself an 900 or 2000 soon. Just got to decide which suits me better.
