I've heard good things out of all those pieces of gear, only thing to watch is the new bridge on that RG

Same here. If you're buying that RG new, definitely consider buying from Rich online. He gives you a hell of a deal, sets the guitar up PERFECTLY (and I mean it), AND, he'll modify the new trems so they won't go out of tune. They'll perform like the older Edge models with the design improvements of the new ones. One thing I would add is that you should at least consider buying a Mesa cab to use with your head. They really do sound much better, in my opinion. They cost more, but you won't believe the low end you can get out of them.

It's odd, my new tone I figured out is based on a tone Three Days Grace had, and they use vintage-ish guitars (P-90 equipped Les Pauls, Les Paul Black Beauty-types, '70s Telecasters, etc) through Marshall TSL-100s (with Marshall cabs, angled) and really loud, and they sounded great. Only thing is, I'm using a Squire Strat with a Super Distortion in the bridge, and a Line6 Flextone II on the Rectified2 setting

How does that Super Distortion sound? I'm REALLY strongly considering putting one in my RG 570. It has stocks now, and I know that Dexter from the Offspring used one in his RG for Smash, which is probably my favorite tone ever.

Well, I own a TSL myself... Great sounding head, providing you don't scoop out all the mids and are careful with that treble control. You'll typically find them in shops for about $1450, but if you've got a good relationship with the dealer you could concievably get that down to$1300 or even, say, $1250. Expect about $600 or so for the cab.

Or you can buy it all used and save yourself $500-700 over the "stock" prices.

Amen. Got my TSL near-mint freshly retubed for $1100, shipped with a spare footswitch, which is probably on the upper end of market value, but in my eyes well worht the price.

Shop around. As long as you're getting it from a fairly reputable source (such as most of the guys on this board ) you're safe.
