    I have a friend who is looking for a good cheap amp for his son, who wants to learn to play guitar. I haven't played many of the smaller solid state modelers. I told him that would likely be the best way to go as it would give his son a lot of sounds which would better keep him engaged and wanting to play. Probably looking at no more than $300.

    Thoughts?

    Katana is the new standard answer to this question.

    Fender Mustang 1 is the best amp I've seen for the money. And for a lot more money. I can get very good tone out of mine with both my electric and acoustic and it has been the best investment I ever made. 100.00 or so.
