Dont get combos if you have taht budget

small tube amps (under 15 watss) are perfect for you

Avoid squires and low-end Epiphones

I have a $400 Epiphone Les Paul, don't remember the model but just look on Musician's Friend or something, and it has served me well.

first:
read this

second:
you're amp/guitar budget is flipped
you should be spending much more on the amp than the guitar, since that's what'll make or break your sound.

third:
music preferences, favorite bands/artists?
any sound in particular you want to get?

then we can answer you

edit: ****, in the time it took me to type that, i got beat to all three things lol.

It annoys me when kids sit there playing the sweet child o mine or smoke on the water intro riff repeatedly
and badly
and so loud the whole shop can't hear themselves think
and with the worst amp settings possible

Get a Roland Cube and a Yamaha Pacifica 112j

And post your thread in the Electric Guitar forum, you'll get much better responses there.

Also, I'd flip the way your spending your money around. Put 450 into your amp, and 200 into the guitar.

Anyways, As far as amps go, look into Blackheart Little Giant, used B-52 AT112, Peavey Valveking.

And for a guitar, theres this brand called "Agile" that has a really good reputation around here. They are suposed to make some of the best Les Paul knock-offs around. http://www.rondomusic.com

You can get a good guitar for 200 if you search around.

I agree with what everyone else has said. IMO, get and ibanez, and a small tube amp or something. Just look around and you will find good deals on stuff

i'm honored.
but why does this have to be a question for "more advanced" players?
