Hey there guys, I am looking for a new amp.

Budget: 400-650€

Experience: I play guitar for around 5-6 years, i like to improvise alot, compose, and play some covers from my favorite artists.

Favorite artists: Guthrie Govan, Porcupine Tree, Dream Theater, A perfect circle, Alice in chains, red hot, 70-80 rock/hard rock bands, etc.

Music style preference: I think what would suit me the best would be something that could give me some nice crunch sound similar to Guthrie govan tones, for some jazz and blues. However i also like good metal, even tho i don´t need that much distortion tones.
And some good warm cleans/cleans for reggae licks would be nice too.

Pickups? Default of PRS SE Santana

New or Used? New

Location? Portugal

Current Gear? This one is for my PRS Santana SE. I may get a guitar upgrade later. As for pedals nothing fancy.

Playing live/with band? I would like to play in small studios and small gigs, with drummer yes.

Thank you for your time.

it's so cool to hate Gibson, even the federal Department of Justice hates them.

yeah jet city is a good call, but i'm guessing the higher gain heads/combos are the ones to go for, not the lower gain 5212rc (though i haven't tried it, it might be fine).
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Hit it with a boost and your fine for metal, it will do hard rock out of the box
I suggested it more because TS also said he wanted to do Jazz, and the 5212 has a good clean channel.
The 5212 is based in the Soldano Lucky 13 amp.

The JCA50 is a good call also
