I just purchased a 09 gibson les paul studio and am willing to spend 600 on an amp. Favorite guitarists are randy rhodes, slash, and that whole era of music. I do like modern rock as well. I probably want a mpdeling amp since I am new and hearing those tones would help to keep me motivated I am sure. I am not gigging, just practicing at home. What would be your suggestions?

Marshall JCM DSL 401 combo, possibly jet city combo. I think you will be more than happy with the Marshall. They are not made anymore unless you include the new DSL series, which I am not a fan of, so you'll have to look used.
Where on Earth are you located?

A JCM800 or JCM900 could do the trick as well if you can find one.

If you want a modeling amp get this Line 6 Vetta www.guitarcenter.com/In-Store-Used-USED-LINE-6-VETTA-W-FS-109925723-i3662217.gc
It is a really good amp and will do what ever you want. And $350 is stupid cheap for what it does. It even has the FBV longboard pedal. And pocket the rest of your money

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

+1 to the Vetta or maybe even a Tube Vypyr if you want to go the modeling route. Both are well under budget and will give you a lot of tones to play with

What about blackstar or orange.

I'm not big on Blackstars HT series, they are pretty mediocre

What Orange?

Blackstar makes some overall nice stuff.
And then it makes the HT-1s and HT-5s.

Orange is good if you like that particular sound, but not slash nor randy rhodes sounded like oranges.

So everyone thinks vetta?

Well if you want a great modeling amp, the Vetta is the amp to get. But in the end it is your money and your choice.

If you want modeling, the Vetta is tough to beat. For that price, I'd get it.
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

A JCM800 or JCM900 could do the trick as well if you can find one.

A 900 is plausible, but an 800 is out of the question, the used prices for those have skyrocketed. Especially the combos. Resale value for pretty much any musical gear has though.

A vetta should be just fine. There are amps that are much better for what you want, but I wouldn't really suggest any of them until you become more skilled. Modeling amps are cheap and some are capable of gigging and rehearsing.

I'll definitely steer you away from modeling amps. If you want something that can do a lot of sounds look into Tech21 Trademark, either 30 or 60, depending on your needs:
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/amplifiers/tech-21
It is all analog and it can do modeling, check their clips. Sounds a lot better than the digital modeling farts...

If you go tube - look at Orange TT. Setback - no fx loop, otherwise great sounding amplifier. Can do tons of tones and very loud at 15 watts, buried a digital modeling amplifier rated 100 watts when cranked.

Look at Egnater Tweaker - a little more but maybe used...

All the Marshall choices are valid, but probably expensive.

Peavey VK might be exactly on the money in your situation.
