is the Marshall AVT150HX Half Stack a good amp to use with the gibon les paul? dont know to much about amps, but my cousin has a marshall mg100 half stack and i was wondering if this was much better and worth the 600 dollars more i would pay.

MG100 sucks and from what I hear the AVT isn't much better either. Maybe go for a tube combo depending on your budget.

No, it's not worth the 600 dollars extra. Maybe if you buy one used you could get a good price on one, but for the price of the AVT you might as well go for a full on valve amp that'll sound a lot better IMO.

Please stop right now. Put the checkbook down.

You'd be stupid to spend 1100 dollars on an avt halfstack. Spend the money and buy a used JCM800 combo.

And please don't say "you need a halfstack"...a 50 watt JCM800 will be about 2x as loud as that AVT.

if you 'NEED' a halfstack get the B-52 AT-100 100w guittar head and matching cab. Then just keep upgrading from there.

#12
get a JCM 900 halfstack used, that should be about $1300-$1400.

and guys, please, his budget limit is $1500 and he wants a halfstack, why the hell are you recommending combos?

avoid mg's/avt's, especially at USA prices. go tube instead, as a general rule.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
