Not if you go used, you can find some great stuff in the $500 range.

Edit: Are you willing to buy used equipment?

What kind of tone are you searching for? Are there any bands whose sound you'd like to emulate?

If it's got two separate channels I don't see why not, especially if you aren't playing anything else. But doesn't classical music usually use nylon-string acoustic guitars? Unless we're talking neoclassical guitar, which is usually played through standard metal rigs...

You won't get a "professional" amp for that price simply because "professional" players tend to spend a bit more money, but a Bugera would get you pretty close (especially with some new tubes). If you want high gain at that price a 1990 or 333 have that voicing. If you're willing to stretch your budget you could go with a Magician, it's a lot more versatile.

Peavey XXX. You can score a halfstack in your budget if you look long enough; the XXX's go for really cheap.
