I'm finding my Mesa F 50 is just not "it" anymore....I've moved from doing modern rock to more classic rock/ blues based stuff (ZZ Top, Bad Co, Free, UFO, etc.) with some church praise music in the mix. I've begun to look for a low/ medium watt amp in the $1000 or less category than can get me those tones with a Les Paul, and the Ghia seems to have a lot of fans. Plus, the good doctor is in the NE area- gotta support the local economy! I checked out the new Marshall 2061x, and was blown away- by the sounds, AND the price tag. I'm looking for something along those lines, without breaking the bank. My thought would be to run the Les Paul >OD pedal (for a lead boost)> Ghia> 2 x12 Avatar closed back cab with V30's. Good plan, or not??
