I'm getting a new amp, not too expensive, around 500-700 dollars.

Other that Fenders, Marshalls and the like, what could you guy suggest for a classic rock/hard rock sound?

If you are more into playing for fun or not in a group/professional, crate amps can give you a pretty good sound along with multiple effects.

ok no to the crate ^

Go tube, not marshall unless its used.

Look into a traynor blue

if you mentioned marshall and fender then go with the Traynor Blue, fender-like cleans with marhall-like distortion.

Hey you look kind of like me.

Except for the sexy man goatee, and kickass shades. And sweet guitar.

I'm jealous.

Traynor or Blues Jr, or a Peavey Classic

Traynor YCV50 (The blue one)

Or if you can find one, a YCV40WR (The red one)

I played my YCV40WR alongside a Blues Jr. and the Traynor ripped it apart. Plus you get two years of unconditional warrenty

Yes they are fender LIKE sounds, and marshall LIKE sounds, and it is a really great amp. it has a lot of versatility and if that is waht you are looking for it will be perfect. It is tube too.
On the other hand, with a fender amp you will get GREAT cleans and a marshall, GREAT distortion.
You could always go fender tube with a good distortion pedal to make up for the lacking distortion.
it is what i did and it is great, fender deluxe has a good overdrive channel. bluesy and crisp.
you can change distortion. you cannot change cleans

^ It depends what is most important to you though. A lot will argue you can't beat the overdrive/distortion that an amp produces, rather than a pedal.

But obviously if you're mostly after a nice clean and overdrive plays second fiddle, then a Fender + pedal cannot be beat.

I played a Fender last time I was at guitar center....Hod Rod Deluxe I believe...

What a GORGEOUS AMP! The cleans, and overdrive, were just beautiful!

I'd look into it if I were you....

Wish I knew exactly which model it was....larger fender tube amp, so I assume it was the HRD.

^ Wow, you liked the Hot Rod's overdrive? I haven't tried it myself but I haven't heard a good thing said about it. I guess tone really is subjective.

^I hate the Hot Rod's overdrive channel, muddy mushy dull crap.
The cleans are orgasmic though.
