I severely apologize for this thread, but some input would be very helpful. I play heavy rock, check out my profile if you want an idea of what my music is like. I also play a little bit of blues and a good clean channel is desirable. So here are the requirements:

-Great lead tone
-Good crunch
-Good cleans
-Gig Volume

What i do not need:
-br00talz
-peavey valveking(please do not suggest it)

My budget can be stretched to $1000-1200, whatever it may take to get something great. Two i had in mind are the Mesa F-50 and Peavey JSX

I recently found out about these amps, and I haven't gotten to play one, but they sound really really cool.

Hughes & Kettner Statesman
Bare with the French, but he starts playing halfway through both videos.

Maybe it's not your cup of tea, but I'd definitely check out one. They're right in your pricerange.

There's also a lot of helpful information on their website.

I really can't settle for decency, i have for too long. Plus i finally i have a good guitar, so i want a really great amp. And i am buying used, so that should shave off some of the price

I honestly thought i would hate the JSX and ended up licking it... Its a nice amp for that price range and very versatile which is one of its selling points.
