I'm looking for an amp that would sound good with a Gibson Les Paul Deluxe. My price range is $1500 and i'm looking for a jimmy page/slash classic rock sound. Also I would prefer it to weigh under 70 lbs.
My Gear:

Epi Les Paul Standard
Fender 48th Street Strat
Vox Valvetronix AD50VT
Martin Koa Acoustic
Some crappy unnamed bass

if you add that extra $100 you'd have a BRILLIANT package that would undoubtfully never let you down.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

I wouldn't listen to them, personally (the MF guy or the AVT guy).

But I agree with the general Marshall recommendation. Check out the JCM 800s. All tube Marshalls are the only ones worth getting. And who the hell needs 350 watts? The only reason you'd need that much headroom is because the thing will make your ears bleed if you ever get it to clip.

JCMs are available as combos and heads, and come in the 800, 900, and 2000 series.

JCM 2000 TSL, ftw.

my only problem with the JCM2000 TSL602 is that it's sooooo heavy.

Try out a bunch of amps, man, and get what you like yourself! I mean, getting an amp because you want the sound of someone else is the stupidest reason there is. Try out amps in your price range, and get the one you think sounds better. Thats the only way to go.

i would get a jcm800 or 900 head and some nice cab to it. the jcm2000 is a great amp no doubt but the sound is more modern. ive never tried one but i have tried the jcm800 and it delivers some sweet crunchy overdrive. get it. i would if i had the money
but if you wanr heavier distortion/od then jcm 2000 is great

Don't be a weeny. Quality construction weighs a lot. My Boogie weighs in at about 90 lbs. Get a set of casters and roll it around.
