I've been on the search for a new amp for a while now, and I'm having a hard time deciding. So here's what I'm looking for.
I play a crap load of Metallica, Hendrix, Satriani, and Zeppelin.
But I also want something that cleans up really nicely.
I will likely buy an Epiphone LP Custom,
a Ltd EC-1000, or a Truckster with whatever amp I get.
I was thinking around 500$.
But if necessary I can do 750$

Very good amp, but I don't think it'll do Metallica without a tube screamer in front of it.

I would go with a Marshall JCM-900 SLX (its the high gain version) you can pick one up on ebay for around $450-500. Then buy a good cab (I recommend something with Eminence speakers or an avatar cab)
