I am in need of new equipment and have about $1000 to spend. I want a head and cab combo(half stack), but the trick is that it needs to be able to handle BOTH guitar and bass.

This is only for my house and will be mainly used for practice and some jamming, but no gigging. I don't need tube, solid state is fine for my needs. I have a Korg AX10G multi-effects pedal which will provide all the guitar effects I need, and I don't use effects on bass.

I would prefer if the cab is 4x10 or 4x12 and has a metal grill so the speakers are protected. I don't care what brand or where I buy it, but don't care for Behringer products. Also, the head doesn't need to match the cab.

I was thinking about something similar to this...

-OR-
http://bass-guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Ampeg-B1RE-Bass-Head-and-B410HE-4x10-Half-Stack?sku=481728

While I have $1000 to spend, the less I spend the better. I also don't mind used equipment, but nothing too old as I prefer newer equipment, not vintage stuff.

Any recommendations?

I don't think there are any half stacks that are good for bass and guitar. And if there are they are probably moar than 1000

If by "clean" you mean "get a finger right up in there and do a good bit of spelunking" then i guess "at any given opportunity" is my answer.

is this topic really worth making 3 threads for...

anyways a markbass lil mark II & cheapo yorkville cab will run you back about $850(cdn) combined but it sounds just ridiculously good. the lil mark II is a great head

the head alone is about $600

get a cheap marshall... my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps.

Ampeg make some great stuff. Check that out.
Signatures are overrated.

Why a half stack instead of a combo? I need the height, puppies like to chew on items close to the ground, but can't reach above a 4x10 cab.

And yes I did the same post in 3 different forums, each one catering to different people, and my hope is to get 3 different sets of opinions.

That's the best reason to get a half stack I've ever seen!
