Alrighty, finally came into some funds to build my gear collection back up a bit. I got a Squier J5(John 5) a couple weeks ago. Really nice guitar in the $400 range, of course id like to do a few mods, like maybe a pickup change, some lock in tuners. But this guitar really is a tank and im loving it. Setup pretty solid right out of the box. Can go from anything from blues to metal. I never thought id ever own a tele guitar, but this is one of my favorite guitars ive ever owned.

and Today i received a Jet City JCA2212c. $270 before shipping. Hell of a price of a decent sounding amp. Love it so far for the price, ill have to spend more time and mess with the settings a bit more. Def has enough gain for my tastes for anything from blues to hard rock to black/death metal. Will be fun to experiment with some different tubes, maybe a new speaker. Ill have to open it up and check which tubes are actually in it. Grabbed a Boss SD1 for a boost as well. appears to get the job done. Exciting Day!

Aren't you the guy that made dozens of "what amp?" threads a while back? If so, awesome! Cool to see you finally were able to get your amp and what looks to be a slick Tele as well. I'm a fan of the SD1 too so, very nice haul man! If I came across that rig I'd have some fun on it. Congrats and HNAD!

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.

Does the speaker allow the amp to have a clear, tight sound? Or is it muddy with what's stock? Been looking at one myself since they're so affordable.
Charvel So-Cal (SH6TB/N, killswitch), Jackson RR5FR (TB6/Jazz, Drop C). Joyo pxl pro.
Loop1=Crybaby from hell, Boss PS-5, Seymour Duncan 805 or Green Rhino, EQD Hoof or Earthbound Audio Super Collider. Loop 1 into ISP Decimator II.
Loop 2 (FX loop)-Line6 M9, TC Spark Mini. Loop 2 into mxr 10band. All into a Peavey Triple XXX 212, Ibanez IL15.

yeah it has a decent sound, of course getting the closed back extension cab would probably improve it. but with the sd1 i get a pretty nice tight sound.
