: well I can tell you this. : you have enough to start out, but you dont have enough to start out on new equipment. : My advice to you is: Go looking around pawn shops for nice guitars in your price range, then buy a nice practice amp like a little RMS or Gorrilla or something small to save some money and let you practice. Trust me, when you start out its better to buy used equpiment that way you dont waste all this money on new stuff, because you might not want your new stuff anymore and you would have wasted all that time and money on it. Used gear is just a better introduction into guitar playing, after a few years on the used gear, if you decide you like guitar enough, move up and buy bigger newer things. DUDE, YOU DON’T WANT USED EQ. MOST OF THE STUFF AT PAWN SHOPS IS WAY OVER PRICED. AND NOT IN THE BEST SHAPE. THE LAST THING YOU WANT IS A GUITAR THAT SOUNDS LIKE JUNK. YOU’LL HATE IT AND NOT WANT TO PLAY IT. YOU SAID YOUY HAD $150 THROW ANOTHER $30 IN AND CHECK OUT MUSICYO.COM GET A KRAMER AMP/GUITAR/ECT.
