Has anyone tried this? In the somewhat near future I might try this if it sounds pretty good. I guess it could work, since they already 'sound' like a guitar amp. It might have less warmth than a real guitar amp though. What do you guys think?

And while we're at it, can you name some modellers with good cleans? Not too bothered with effects, and I might use it with my 6505+. Of course, the cheaper, the better, but I'm willing to wait a little longer if it's worth it.

EDIT: now that I think about it, it might not be a good idea, since I play metal...

Please don't tell me I'm the only one that clicked this thread thinking I would learn how to make my guitar sound like a grizzly bear.

Practice for keyboard and a little recording I guess.

Why would you want a modeller without effects? Besides that, if you're using a modeller for amp sims than a keyboard amp is the way to go (unless you buy an atomic tube amp which are designed to work with modellers) since keyboard amps by nature are made to be relatively colourless as possible (milage varies) so a good modeller with excellent amp sims will sound as close as they're supposed too.

I didn't say I didn't want effects, I just said I don't use them alot. How's the amp sim on the Vox Tonelab compared to Boss' GT series? What about Line 6 or Digitech, any info on those?

you could get a tech 21 sansamp, just putting it out there

Yah, but that wouldn't have as much range as a keyboard amp, would it?

Until a few days ago this was my exact setup!

I used a Pod XT into a Roland KC120 (60 watt keyboard amp) as I play keyboards as well. It sounded decent and would go plenty loud, at least for me. It sounded nice, a bit more bottom-end than one typically gets out of a guitar amp, but the Pod's EQ took care of this. In my opinion amp modelers will sound best being played through a PA or other amp designed to have a fairly flat response.

I ended up buying a Crate v32 because once I heard my Strat through a tube amp, it was all over. Now I use the Pod through the effects return (some would call this blasphemy but I'm out of $$$). As for the keyboard amp, it's for keys only now.

I did this with a Crate Keyboard amp and it works pretty nice. Keyboard amps are noisy though, so you won't be able to get too loud with drowning in noise, but otherwise, they make great practice setups. Same can be done with Bass amps, though Bass amps are rather quiet, making them a bit better for the job.
