Kastet you can't go wrong with Washburn, trust me.
You 've seen what guitars I own. Also owned USA LesPaul. Also I have played 3 times as many.
My fellow guitarist bought a Korean X50q after seeing mine. Still has the HeadHunters, not bad at all. We both play Behringer V-amp II (I sold almost every expensive amp I had, this little thing is magic IF you konw how to use it, or else it sucks...)
If he mentions anything about selling the X50q, no one else will know about it, I'll get it in a moment! It is discontinued now.

I own a studio, full of instruments and I fix things myself. You should try V-amp. It's so cheap, if you don't like it, keep it as a... tuner!!! Played it from small bars to open-air shows, this thing rocks.

Stay in tune and rock hard!

It's simple. When you play in a small club, you need to carry little stuff with you and you do not want a loud amp (because you will hear yourself loud and the others in the audience will not, depending on where they stand). When you play in a big show, the sound engineer brings large tube amps, so you just plug in. In every case, you have a consistent sound , unless the sound engineer does something wrong. You should listen to V-amp II, it has some great sounds, but you will need to tweak it a little, so it sounds good. It also gives you stereo out, so when I play with a wide-minded sound eng, I feed 2 channels to the console, with slightly different signals (one dry and bassy and the other trebly and with a little reverb, the stereo effect in a large live is exceptional). I also modified my black strat and my black Cort, so I plug another cord (stereo) which ends to the V-amp II, where the footswitch normally pluged, so I can change patches with my hand! See the 2 buttons near the front humbuckers. You may think it is weird, but it is practical and you can run and jump wherever you like!!! I'm leaving for work now, if you have any other qusetions, post them and give me some time to answer!

Bye Antonis

I saw V-amp II.

I think the processor I use is not worse. I has realistic effects, quite hard and enjoyable distorsion and overdrive.
If you are interested check demos on digitech.com or I can send you some of mine.
Also I would like to see your demos made with that Cort and x-50

Ok Kastet, mail me mp3's at antant@otenet.gr and I will find you some recorded rehearsals from my studio

When you play live, an active DI is necessary, I have the red Behringer, with cabinet simulation, very realistic, when you plug directly to a console.

check this
http://www.behringer.com/GI100/index.cfm?lang=eng
The DI takes a mono unbalanced signal and produces a balanced XLR signal for console. this one also produces a sound like a miked amp, because if you plug a processor directly to a console, you will often hear a ridiculous sound. Do some research, by the keyword DI, cabinet simulation, and you will learn more.
Check these links (I was very fast hey???)

They are recorded during a live gig with my former band, DON'T WALK, but the recording is from the bar's PC. Anyway, you can hear our sound. I play with the black strat with the Tone Zone's, V-amp II and my red DI.
It was 3-4 ago, I think...
Do some googling, you will find a lot about live setup. Or go and help someone during a live setup, you will learn what to do, to sound better in a live.

Dear Kastet
I found a track from a rehearsal with my Cort Kx1F, but I have overfilled geocities. If you want, send me your mail and I send it to you. I suppose you are on broadband (DSL)

Hey Kastet, I also found something I recorded with my white strat (check photos in my profile), I have installed Seymour Duncan Hot Rails on it, with parallel-series switches, a lot of work but totally successful. Very loud pickup, don't fool you because it looks like a single coil but it is twin-rail, very loud I say again. I also have pics of the new pickguard I made, the old one is untouched, with the original Fender pups and switch, somewhere in a drawer...

Hey, Antonis,

can you send it through ICQ or Skipe? I will be there this evening.
It is simplier because I have hardly limited e-mail box.

Unfortunately, no. If you want, I can send you the one mp3, you delete it from the mailbox and then I send the other.
