Quite a friendly response from every one here. Not much inspiration but Zacky Vengeance, Synyster Gates, Zach Blair ...Etc, just love music and music theory think it's an awesome subject. Big thanks to Alan Ratcliffe, your reply to my post in the mods/repairs section was A grade and cleared up allot of confusion. Lastly for joey and don’t get to excited it’s a pretty weak rig. I decided not to spend too much when I started in case i didn’t really enjoy it as much as I thought I would. I got a Cort 254 G series. http://www.cort.co.kr/english/products/common/view.asp?product_id=119
# the black one. My amp is a 10W Legacy not sure on the exact model it was a present from a friend in the Uk, use it to practice at home, don't really need a really good amp currently,the bassist i play with used to do sound so he's got tons of equipment and i just plug into his PA system.
