I would like to thank those who helped me in my search for a new guitar and amp. I bought a Epi Les Paul standard (BLACK). It sounds great and looks great. As for the amp, I was dead set on a Marshall mini stack until I seen it in person. I passed and bought something some one suggested, a Fender FM 212R. Alot of amp for the money and my son and I can both play at the same time on it, which is great. You guys helped alot.
Cool, grats on your purchase.

But not a fan of the FM 212R though.
