All signature models are ridiculously overpriced.

What's your location, budget, style, etc?
Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

most amps at that kind of money sound great

what type of tone(s) are you after and what's your budget and location (country, not address!)?

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.

Relatively speaking, they don't cost much money - at least, here in the United States, they don't. The EVH 5150-III is a three-channel, 100-watt tube amp that sells for US$1,800.00. Its little brother, the 50-watt three-channel version, sells for US$1,000.00. As far as 50+ watt tube amps are concerned, that is about average. Take a look at the offerings in that range from Marshall, Diamond, Blackstar and the like. You'll see what I mean.

The EVH amps are made by Fender, and they are made to one guy's exacting specifications, so there is not a lot of overlap between Fender's regular lineup and the EVH amps. Even so, a Fender Twin Reverb amp sells for $1,450.00 new, so the EVH amps are right about where one would expect them to be, price-wise.

I think that you don't need EVH for that type of music.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
