Anyone have a rec for a well built vintage 4x12 capable of handling 100w that doesn't cost a fortune?
post #1292 of 4598
So that '58 Strat I bought awhile back has been made playable. If anyone has a WEM 4x12 sitting around, you can see why I'd want it.

post #1293 of 4598
how much would you unload the strat for?
post #1294 of 4598
smile.gif I wouldn't, loving it too much now. My favorite guitar, definitely, and I've stopped worrying about the truss rod.

Really guys, 4x12's, I need opinions!

Oh, vintage. Nevermind.

If I didn't go vintage, I'd get something made by Amplified Nation, who do great Dumble style cabs for really decent prices. Though I played the Hiwatt through one of the new Marshalls for months and it sounded great, I think they are really good cabs!

I think if I could find an old Orange cab that would be the ticket... but I can't find one.

Imagine all the Specials smashed by Pete Townsand over 5+ years.

The story I heard in guitar circles was that he actually had a favorite that he would play. Sometime during the show would go behind his amp, switch it for a brand new identical SG that he would later break into firewood.

If you read Pete's bio he describes how he was inspired to smash his guitar as part of performance art promoted by some wild avant garde German classical musician. Rather than guitars this guy would smash pianos at the end of each performance smile.gif

So if you had to buy one of the Les Paul Epiphones available on zzounds right now which would you buy if you were most interest in something versatile yet ready to do 90s grunge type stuff?

Edit: pick any guitar there for $600 or under, with hardshell case, that would fit what I want.

Those monoprice guitars have been favorably reviewed in comparison to the epiphones.

Looks like they updated the model (and raised the price a pinch), but if you don't want to spend a lot of money, you could do one of them. Would leave you plenty of money for a hard case and a professional setup if it comes to you kind of goofy.
