Hey guys just bought my first electric guitar (Yamaha Pacifica 112v)

need suggestions for a decent amp around $200. Don't really have any genre that i play as i am farly new to electric guitar, But like blues rock and classic rock. And want to get into playing more hard rock eventually. Thanks

A Peavey Vypyr series, especially if you'd consider used ones would be a good option and still not break the bank. 
Guitar/Bass:
Schecter: Damien 6/Stilletto Extreme 5, Squier: Bullet HSS*, Washburn RX10*/WG-587, Agile Septor 727
*mods

Amps/FX
Peavey: Vypyr 30/Max 112 (200W), ISP: Decimator

Understood- I waste money on amps*, too.

Vypyr, Vox VT, Roland Cube, are all decent practice amps on low $$.  Another new issue is the Boss Katana which seems to have a lot of fans.

Scheit to avoid:  Line 6 Spider, Marshall MG, Marshall Code.  Nothing good happening here.

I second those suggestions for the Vox VT Series, and Roland Cubes! They're great little amps.

You can always go for something like a multi fx pedal and hed phones, or a Line6 Pod. Keeps everything quiet and you can jam out late at night. You don't have to bother anyone while you're learning, and it can save you a bunch of cash while also giving you something you can use silently for eons.

If you opt more for blues you should consider fender mustang. Although I do not recommend it for hard rock or metal, it is a modeling amp meaning that you have endless options. However, if playing lots of blues is not the case you may want to seriously consider peavey vypyr mentioned above, which is also a modeling amp.

Good luck choosing an amp
