I can say for certain the 6505 combo is anything but shit. This amp is killer! I was lucky enough to find one in mint condition used for $700. I'm playing the 6505 with an ESP LTD EC-1000 and it sounds great. I love playing metal and this amp fits the bill perfectly, especially with the EMG active pickups. The best thing you can do is just head up to your local guitar shop and try out different amps and see what works for you. From there look in the classifieds, craigs list, etc. and see if you can get the gear used. Best of luck bro.

+1 to all the suggestions above.

^Yeah. Your F-30 pwns my V16 pretty much and that Greenback and MASS are both things I really want.

Check your for sale thread. I am interested in the Fuzz.


Thanks for the compliment. It really is a nice rig for the price. I sold the V30 that is comes with stock so the greenback was pretty much free.

Get the combo, do you need a half stack? Really? I say find a 5150 off craigslist. Be patient one will show up. They always do, especially around xmass... Edit: Kevin and acdcrocks are right too...

But, seriously, look into Mesa/ENGL.

Mesa for versatility. ENGL for lots of gain.
The F-50 would be the epitome of versatility, in terms of Mesas.

I dislike the combo as well. Sounded way tinny and such. Maybe new speakers would change the amp completley, but I still hated it stock.
