Marshall JCM900. It's what Ace uses.

Or a JCM800 would work too. Any Marshall head with a master volume, with all knobs including volume cranked to 10, and your guitar tuned down 1/2 step. Thats how to get the Ace Frehly tone. And most other rock like that

thered probably be no significant difference in 100 and 120 watts.
from what ive heard, the windsor is like a jcm800, but with no clean tones worth mentioning, but if thats not a problem, its so cheap you could get that and maybe a 2x12 cab and attenuator for cranked tone for less money than a jcm800 stack.

There is very, very little difference between 100 watts and 120. People overestimate how much of a volume difference wattage makes. The biggest change is the amount of headroom.

Check out the prices of Marshall's where you are. I think you'll find the Peavey is a more affordable option. There's virtually no difference between 100W and 120W, and Peavey has a strong reputation for making a solid product despite your unfortunate experiences.

You Don't Need 100W.

thats not a problem really i found a 900 aus dollar Marshall JCM900 in the paper so it looks good and also i might get the cab which costs 1100 but about 600 2nd hand
