How would this sound? I play a lot of classic rock/heavy metal like AC/DC, KISS, Motley Crue, Whitesnake, Dokken, Van Halen, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, early Metallica, etc. I've heard good things about the head, but I'm not sure about the cab - after reading some Harmony Central reviews, I'm afraid it'll make me sound sound too "nu-metal". I ask because someone's selling this setup on craigslist here for a pretty good price...

Thanks in advance.
Sure. It's a good '80s rock amp.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
I'd say yes to the amp, as i've even thought about buying one... as for the cab, personally either get it and sell it, or just buy the head... The cab sounds horrible imo.
I've heard the cab sucks, surprising considering EVH supposedly used them....
i recently got a custom cab, check sig

so depending on your budget, you can get some really good cabs, and even Avatar are cheap for really good stuff

thanks for making an old dude feel like his advice is actually taken into consideration
The cab is definitely scaring me, but I guess if I don't like it, I could just make do with it for a while, then sell it and buy one I like more.
