Well a Laney is the best choice.

The GH50L is in your pricerange (not a combo though) and it's what Paul Gilbert used. Though a VH does feature a channel which is basically a GH and I've seen Paul Gilbert use the VC50 (the now discontinued combo version of the VH100R, but 50 watts), you should be able to get one used. Timi_Hendrix has one, so ask him.

Paul Gilbert used Laneys... what else? He uses Marshall Vintage Moderns now though.

I'd go with a GH50L plus a cab. I couldn't get a great tone out of the Vintage Modern head I tried, only good ones.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

orange rocker 30 combo? or an orange rocker head with an orange cab


That's all wrong; the guy's looking for PG tone so Laney is the order of the day.
