I don't have anything to add, but I want to do the same thing with an old amp I have and turn it into an extension cab. I want to see what people think.

Right. I actually figured that out not too long ago. There's just not a better way to describe it. I grabbed it out of my dad's basement 20 years ago and redid it. New finish, new saddles (hence when...

No more than plugging them into a computer or listening to your iPod will. Expensive headphones are usually better as they will sound better. Unless they are beats. Those never sound good.

If it's a headphone jack, no damage will occur. Unless of course, you turn the amp up too loud and damage your hearing.

I almost picked up a Kelly a few years ago. I was turned off by the fact that, at the time, it seemed like the only Jacksons with fixed bridges were sub $300 ones. I didn't...

Not bad. I like the Iron Cross motif on your Gibbo. I just finished my take on his Grynch a little while ago. No pics yet, though.
What are you running your signal through?

I was very impressed with an Agile AL-2000 I'd seen before.
It would also leave you with enough in the budget for a decent 2nd hand amp. There's no reason they can't last you a long time.
