Need the amp for what? Gigging? Practicing?
Budget? What style?

You didn't give us much details.

Anyways, I'm going to rent that 200 watt Acoustic Cab+Head pack that you can buy on Musician's Friend. That'll be good for practicing, and small gigs

You have feet in your shoes,
You can steer yourself,
any direction you choose,
You're on your own,
And you know what you know,
And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go."

Well for gigging I would say you need anywhere between 2-400 watts of power. Brands to look into are Acoustic, Kustom, Fender, possibly used Ampeg, Gallien Krueger. I'd recommend if you do go with a combo go with at least a 210 and would also recommend steering clear of using a 115 as a stand-a-lone cab (not nearly enough definition alone but good for bringing out depth when used with a 210 or 410)
