i'm not sure what wattage i need or anything either. right now i'm using a line 6 spider III (good for practice, bad at higher volumes) i have an epiphone dot with a dirty fingers pickup in it, and play alt. rock (AVA, Foo Fighters)

i'd like to spend around $500-$750 on it.
#2
for band practice and gigging anything over 30 watts tube would be good
um maybe look at a used marshall TSL or DSL

i know used gear could be just as good, but i don't want to deal with craigslist or ebay or anything. what's a good new amp i could afford?
#4
positive you can't go used?
hmm bugera 1990 might be in your price range more towards the top end though
based on a jcm 900 which is possibly what those bands are using
also maybe look into vox amps

i probably could go used, i just don't like craigslist and all that jazz.
alright, i'll look into bugeras and voxs
