Whats up with everyone saying they suck with solid state latley? Is this just another bandwagon? I had them with my old solid state and they sound better than anything else did.

No, it's just that they don't do what they're supposed to with a SS amp. They're meant to push the preamp in a tube amp to drive it harder, but in a SS amp they just overload it and make it "clip" which generally sounds like crap.

When I've played guitars through ss amps, it's sounded great. It's really based on opinion. But they are meant more for tube amps.
My gear:

Memphis les paul (fixin it up as we speak!)
Schecter C1 plus
Ibanez RX 240 (been sold)
Peavey envoy 110 (Pretty dang good!)
Some washburn acoustic...

They don't suck with solid state if you have a good amp.
But, they do sound far better on tube amps.
People probably just think they suck by comparison.
