Heh, you're looking for a lot of different sounds in one amp.

A jcm800 should do GnR and Zep pretty well, and do alright for foo fighters.
No idea how to get Muse tone though(mainly cause I don't remember the sound )

btw, how much do jcm800's run in the UK???

Yeh, I'm not sure about Muse lol.

They vary from like £300-£600 for the head depending on condition and how lucky you are, and then cabs are £200 to £350 (new)

i just tried to search on the local music shop site and this one came up, for little inder £1000 - Marshall JVM410C Vintage Modern Combo - would that do the trick or would he be better off with the JCM800?

There's one on ebay right now, just search for jcm 800 2x12.

Or you could try a Vintage Modern 2x12

Basically a 2 channel JCM 800 used (make sure its not the single channel, they don't have enough gain for Guns N Roses) or a Vintage Modern would be the way to go, and a 2x12 would be fine unless your planning to play wembley stadium any time soon (trust me, I have a JCM 800 2x12 and its the loudest amp I've ever heard). Good luck

lol, that link was just to show you the amp.
I'm sure that they sell Vintage moderns in the UK, seeing as how Marshall is an english company.......

What is the UK equivalent to GuitarCenter/Musician's Friend ?????

Gak I guess, and Marshalls are actually cheaper over here because, as you said, they are made here.
