We need: Budget, Genres, New or Used, Home or Gig, Closest City, Current Gear

Noobs - if you want real 'What Amp' or 'What pedal' help please provide the following:

Budget? - What is practical for you and what is your limit?

Genres? - What style do you play mostly, fav guitarists, do you need cleans, etc?

New or Used? - Lots of great amps out there used, especially in a down economy.

Home or Gig? - Also important. Maybe you do both. Jamming with a drummer can be considered 'gigging' but you won't have a PA etc.

Closest City? - We aren't here to stalk you but we need to know where you are in the world roughly and we can help further if we know what city you are in (ie craigslist, local shops, Guitar Center used section, etc)

Current Gear? - Also good for us to know.

Paragraphs of information about yourself are nice and all but chances are people won't read it word for word and will skip over looking for these 6 things I listed.

Edit: The 'VS' threads are annoying. It is good for us to know what you are considering or have already tried out but....

With the holiday coming up, I thought this thread would be helpful for those asking and for those giving advice.

It almost always took an entire page to squeeze that information out of them. Not anymore!
