Really? All I usually see is 1970s 10 watt solid state amps for $200 because they're "vintage" :haha:. Occasionally there is something like a silverface Champ, but they want $500, which is double...

I bought an old Univox amp online from Guitar Center. The UPS guy threw it at the door, I guess he didn't feel like walking up 2 steps, so the cab broke and the chassis was hanging on the side. In...

A RWRP pickup is already silent so that's why it wouldn't do anything to that. I don't think their would be a problem with the other two pickups. But I'm sure that there are cheaper ways to get rid...

Practice a lot clean until you play the same with no distortion or a lot. Practice is free unless you say time is money, then it can cost a lot.

I use 3 springs with 11s and have no problems. But I tune down a half step, and it might be different on Strats than Ibanez guitars.

What about something like how Neil Young has a switch on his Les Paul so it removes the controls and the pickups go straight out? That way you could still have the knobs if you want them.

Why not just use a low output pickup? They sound better and respond better to how you play. And you can always add gain, but you can't add clean :)
