So, I was going to get a new guitar, but some people told me I should probably look into a tube amp first. Since I cant get both of them at the same time, I guess I'll go for the tube amp first, so Im not putting the guitar to waste.

I don't want to spend too much.. maybe at max $1000 or so US dollars.

I'm not sure if I should get a stack or combo or spend all the money on just a head.. So help me out!

Take a look at the ENGL's, the Traynors, the Peavey Classics, the Marshall DSL's, and some of the Fenders. You may need an overdrive pedal with the Fenders, but they should all get you good blues tone. I mentined the ENGL's for thier cleans, pristine Fendery cleans, thier distortion is more of a modern sound than a blues or classic rock sound. Still worth a look though, great amps.
