Hey all, I am really having a hard time deciding which way to go amp wise. I am looking for a good rock tone. Currently I am using a Line 6 Flextone III with an Ibanez RG370 with a Dimarzio Breed in the bridge. Every tone I find in the Line 6 just sounds blah and processed (because it is) No tone has balls. I am looking for tones like Screaming Cheetah Wheelies (early 90's), Classic rock overdriven guitars, 80's Dokken, Vito Bratta and such. I even thought about buying a Les Paul and getting away from the Ibanez but wasn't sure if a guitar change was it or if my amp sucks as bad as I think it does. Price is an issue, around 1000 is my limit. I do not gig, this is more for recording and jamming with friends. I dont want a practice amp wattage though. Size does not matter. I want tone. good hard rocking tone. I also write guitar instrumentals and would need a good lead tone. Looking for both a chunky rhythm and searing lead. Too tall of an order? I ha ve played a JCM800 of a friends and it is awesome but out of my price range right now. There are some good shops around here that carry some of the more boutique stuff but most of it is out of my price range. This is the only place I would ask such a question, you guys know your stuff!!!
