I'm really considering either a Peavey Vypyr 30 watt or a Marshall MG-30 FX amp? have you guys got any opinions?

Without a doubt, go for the Vypyr and never look back at the MG.

My I ask why you are buying a thousand dollar guitar and only a $200 amp? Your never gonna get a perfect tone out oof the tele and modeeling amp. You should split your budget more effectively. Good tone is gonna come from a good amp first, hte guitar will only pick up what the amp is lacking.

If you do refuse to change your budget though I reccomend the vyper or a cube.

Well I'm on a tight budget you see. I have roughly £500 to get both an amp and guitar so I'd rather have a better guitar. I will upgrade the amp in time though, but it is only being used for practise in my room

This belongs in GG&A, but I'll advise you, don't ruin such a guitar with an amp that price.

Split the price, instead of the Baja, get a standard MIM Tele and then the leftover money can go on a better amp.

A bit of rock, classic rock and bluesy songs, and roughly £500.

Ok thanks, but these amps are worth £150, surely I can get A decent sound out of them? I have a Kustom dart fx amp now worth £60 and get good sounds out of it.

Why have a Baja Tele, with a crap modeling ss amp? If thats all the money you have to spend, I would suggest a small watt tube amp, or just keep saving up.
#10
The MG30 shouldn't be costing you £150!

And yeah you can get good sounds (out of the vyper), but to really compliment the quality of the baja tele you want something better.
#11
you will regret not getting a good amp. any decent guitar will work fine, there is no reason to have a $1,000 guitar. (believe me, i made the same mistake) i dont even use that guitar anymore, i use my MIM strat. an average guitar will sound much better through a nice amp than a nice guitar tthrough a p.o.s amp like the two you posted

Ok guys thanks for the advice! I had a brainstorm and I'm thinking Fook these crappy amps lets get a Peavey Valveking 112!

So you've finally decided to get the Baja? You won't regret it.

About the amp, for your style I'd recommend you to get the Peavey Classic 30 over the Valveking (in fact I think VKs leave much to be desired).

i'd get a vox valvetronix for those more classic tones on a budget.

If you're not playing anything too heavy you could maybe even consider one of the cheaper low wattage tube amps- though bear in mind they'll still be really loud, even though they're only 5 watts.

However, that new vox ac4 has a variable wattage control bringing it down to a quarter of a watt- that *should* be bedroom level, but i could be wrong. I haven't tried it yet, but it'd be worth a try.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Oh, +1 for the Vox AC4, I had forgotten it! I haven't tried it either, but it looks like a good deal for what I've heard.
