Re: Totally Stumped, Need Advice!!
My advice, dont get some solid state amp. You have a nice guitar, and its not right to spend that kinda dough for a nice guitar and plug it in some crappy crate or line6. I think its only right that you lay down some more cash for a great TUBE amp. The clarity and smoothess and deep level of dynamics and harmonics that a tube amp has are so rich and sound so great, it makes solid state and digital amps sound like transistor radios. If you want a good amp, walk straight to the back of Guitar Center and see what they got in the used section, where they can sometimes have GOOD amps for a change.
Get an good tube amp, several great ones can be had for less than $500, most for less than $300. Stuff like old Laney AORs, Carvin X100Bs, MTS's, and Valvemasters,Marshall JCM 900's and Artists, Ampeg VL100's, old Crate Stealth and Blue Voodoos, old Peavey Butchers and Ultras and VTMs and Classic 50s. RedBears are pretty good for the price, Sovteks are GREAT bang for buck rockers too.
There are LOADS of options to choose from with a used Tube amp, and it will sound much much better (especially for classic rock tones) than the Crates and EXPECIALLY better than the Line6s.
