Can't you get a Peavey Classic 30 for that kind of money? If not new, used at least. Would look at that.

I play Dokken-riffs on my SSS Strat all day long. Just like the dynamics of single coils better than humbuckers.

Chords on the guitar can technically never be in tune, even on a perfectly intonated guitar that's been precisely tuned. They just get close enough for rock n roll. (The frets are placed at what is...
