I ordered a Carvin V3, it got put on backorder and i just cancled. I went to the gc looking for cabs and BOOM i saw it, it was sent from God, a kramer Explorer w/ emgs, and best of al it was Lefty. So i immeditly played it and took it to the counter, there goes $500 i guess!! But now i dont have a amp at all so i cant play my Kramer lol

Not sure what to get, i have around 1k to spend. I might be able to get a V3 used and a cheap cab but not sure so here i am if i can't

I play a lot of Metal, classic rock, alt, and i like DECENT, doesnt have to be Fender cleans.


THANKS

I would stick with the V3 and just wait tbh.

Anyone else think i should get a used v3 head (for about $700-$750) and save for a good cab like a Avatar or a Vader. I can just admire my Kramer and play acoustic i guess

edit : im anti 5150
