Hey guys, Its a long story but long story short, i sold everything but my guitars, and i basically need to get a whole new rig except guitars for under 1500, I mainly play old hard rock/metal, (judas preist, iron maiden, anthrax, metallica.) We play clubs, the guitars i have are an esp eclipse a JB and a jazz in the neck, a frankenstrat with 78 custom shop duncan, and a washburn parrallaxe with a duncan distortion and a duncan jazz. im in st louis MO, im really open to anything, just tell me what you guys think would be best, Thanks.

I know you may think I'm just saying this but you should check out a Splawn Quick Rod. It will nail what you do in spades and also hit some more modern stuff. It will cut through the mix like no other. You can find them for around $1,200 and you should be able to find a cab with the rest. What kind of cab/speakers were you thinking of?

other options would include:

Used JCM 800
Used JCM 2000 DSL100
Egnater Renegade
Jet City JCA100
EVH 5150 III
(more...hold please)

I use too have a mesa cab and that was pretty sweet, splawn cabs are pretty awesome i hear, Im a big fan of the small blocks, im also a big v30 on top and greenbacks on the bottom fan, PS i hate blackstar too lol

Are you thinking head/cab or are you open to combos?

Are you used to (happy with) lugging a 4x12 around or are you willing to look at 2x12s?

The cheapest Splawn 4x12 I ever saw was $400 (but it may have had the good speakers removed). Splawn sells their 4x12 cabs new starting at $650 now (with the Duratex coating). Avatar makes great cabs for the money. The regular Splawn tolex cabs are pricier. I just bought a Mesa 412 Traditional Slant from GC. Should be here Friday'ish.

My Splawn 2x12 has Small Blocks.

I'll bet that RM with the Blackface, 1086 and SL+ would be pretty sweet. And for $600! That's like $250 for the actual amp.

Im really open to anything, but i would prefer head over combo, but if the deal is good enough i can do a combo, im happy with a 4x12, i am also willing to look at some 2x12s, i actually use to have a avatar, pretty sweet deal.

You have the exact same guitar this guy has (perhaps a different paintjob, and maybe covered pickups) and used to have a Mesa gab. Also same modules. Thought I would support the RM100 with this video:

EDIT: Pardon, that is a Ultra XL...
The above post is in terms of 'YMMV' and 'IMO', etc...

This debate is exhausting to read.
The guitar world is drowned in fairy dust.
We need to start at the very beginning. What is tone.

Get a JCM2000 DSL100 and a 1960A cab used, then pocket the $600 you'll have left over.
