I'm looking to buy both a guitar and an amp. The guitar I'm looking at is a Jackson SL3 soloist. I'm into a variety of music; mostly metal and hard rock, but some blues and jazz to go along with it.

I have about $2000 to spend on both items, so the amp would probably be around the $1000 range. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Would it be worth it to buy an amp used? I'm looking at used guitars. Someone before said they would rather buy a used Porsche than a new Honda any day. Is it the same with Amps?
Absolutely look at used.
