If I get a 1000$ guitar, how much should I spend on an amp if I want both to sound good together? Any recommendations for amps would be appreciated.

BTW I play metal.

How much should you spend on an amp?

Whatever the price of a nice naturally high gain tube amp that has the features you want is.

You can find used 6505 and 5150 combos for less than 700 USD,so that's a good place to start.

How much is your total budget? And what kind of guitar is it?

A used 5150 / 6505 would be ideal.
Ibanez S520EX ~ Roland Cube 30X ~ Dunlop Tortex 1.0mm

Sounding good isn't about how much money you spend, it's about finding what you want. You may find it in a Bugera or a Soldano. The quality of the amp does not translate into dollars.

An ideal budget would be under 1500$ for the guitar and amp. The guitar would either be a Kirk Hammet Signature or a Dean From Hell CFH. Maybe a a nice Schecter.

Also remember that I don't play gigs or anything, not even light gigging.

I vote a Bugera, they are sexy.
But it depends, if you are gigging i suggest you match/overshoot the price of your guitar. If its for bedroom practice then it should be somewhere around 3/4 of $1000
