Classic Rock and I'm getting a Fender Frontman 65W

All of the guitars mentioned so far are good for classic rock. Usually people play a strat or even a Gibson SG style body. My suggestion is that you go try them out. Keep an open mind...Even if you want to, you can get an idea of the sound you want out of a guitar by relating it to a famous guitarist's sound. A lot goes into the sound, but you always start with the guitar first. If you listen closely you will find the differences in their sound besides just the amount of distortion and effects they're using.

Rock Guitarists

Stevie Ray Vaughan - Strat
Nuno Bettencourt (Extreme) - Strat
Jake E Lee (Ozzy) - Strat
Zakk Wylde - Gibson LP
Angus Young - Gibson SG
Slash - Gibson LP
Jimmy Page - Gibson LP

I have an Epiphone Les Paul Ultra 2 and thee thing is a beast when playing classic rock. It's got a built in Acoustic pickup that you can add to the electric sound or play it seperatley.

Unfortunately, all that you have in mind will disappoint. The Strat's weedy sound will frustrate you. The Epi's lack of quality will annoy you and the Frontman will limit you.
Classic rock? Agile Les Paul of some kind. (in UK we now have a new rival to Vintage, ha ha). Kustom Defender 50w combo.

Vypyr 30. Can do much better for $200 and under, unless you find a used Vypyr 75, or if you're very lucky, a used Line 6 Flextone.
