I'm a fan of V30s and EVLs. If you want a good, sensitive speaker at a reasonable price that won't break up (your amp will, but the speaker won't), pick up the Eminence Delta ProA....

I've never had that happen, and I've got a ton of neck-throughs. And we're talking guitars that date to the mid-70's in that mix.

The MTS3200 is more than worth $200 if it's in good shape.

It's not a clone of a Marshall, or anything like that. But it's a great platform for pedals.

Pretty much every manufactured 4-5 string bass can be slapped. It's far more technique and setup than construction or design.

What, specifically, are you trying to accomplish?
Is it a "plank" guitar (flat on top and bottom)? Bolt neck? Odd scale?
Special paint, special materials, odd shape on body or headstock?

Oh, and if you just want the Marshall amp sound, look at Wampler pedals: the Pinnacle, the Plextortion and the PlexiDrive. Lots of vids and sound files.
