why would he go to the classified section when he wants suggestions on a new amp?

What guitar do you have? A strat's neck pickup + Vox AC30 do Santana tones well for me (yes, I know he uses humbuckers, a Mark IV, and Dumble amps), but you also get an incredibly versatile british rock tone for anything other genre.

edit: keep in mind that I'm not a Santana expert, so the information in parenthesis on what he uses may be wrong, but you get the point.

what fender has 24 frets?

and mesa amps are great, but be prepared to save 1000's

cheaper is the famous Pignose amplifiers. the Hog-20s are little battery rechargeable combos that have volume, gain(squeal), and i think Bass and Treble. they sound great.

i only have the Legendary 7-100 , but i think that the popularity of that amplifier speaks for the company's quality by itself.

Support your local slaughterhouse, and buy a Pignose today!
