Greetings my wonderful fellow guitarists.
So i like to play jazz, blues, and instrumental music (satriani, vai , etc)
so a lot of versatility.

Was contemplating the Fender Deluxe Reverb for a long time and was just going to buy a good multi-effects pedal as well for the other styles

If you all have some input i would love to hear it! tongue.gif

Hey mate, I'd go for a Marshall AVT50 combo - I don't know if it's made anymore (there's a similar thread about amp recommendations here: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=47946 ) and a few stomp boxes - delay, reverb, wah, booster and that's it wink.gif I have no clue about that Fender, but if you want Satriani stuff, you could always try a Peavy as well. Should it be a combo? Or a head?

I have the Fender Hotrod Deluxe and I love it. I find it flexible enough to play just about any style. Nice cleans, 2 OD settings, and with another OD pedal ( I use a Tube Screamer) I can dial in a good range of different tones.

If you want a really beautiful clean amp that works nice with effects pedals - interesting amp to try would be "Roland Jazz Chorus". Its a very old amp, I'm not sure about the price but it should fit the budget.

I also head good things about the Fender Amps mentioned above. They can sound a bit in the "mid" frequencies though - try them out in the store and see how you like the vibe.

I find Marshall much more versatile than Fender amps. I would pick any cool Marshall amp. There are JCM combos which sound really good and can be connected to bigger cabinets is it's needed. Do you want it for home practice, for playing live or both?

First of all thank you all for your great advice!
and its going to be at home and for live!, Just small things, maybe a smaller size theatre at most.
was looking at the fender blues deuxe and Boss Me-25 pedal. Saw alex hutchings demonstration on youtube of the ME-25, and im hooked.
but then again that guy can make a cardboard box with some strings attached to it sound good biggrin.gif

Check out the used gear section of GC online, for Mesa Boogie. I just got a 50w Rectoverb 1 12" combo (2 6L6) for just over $600. That's a TON of amp, and I find the cleans are way better for jazz. If you buy anything before trying a Mesa, you have done yourself an injustice. dry.gif

While I agree the mesa is an amazing amp, I have owned both and you get way more bang for the buck from the 2x12 JMD 100 watter. I sold mine for 450 and with 28 different foot switchable tones as well as 4 on the floor you can get fender cleans as well as any dirt tone you want. Ity was actually to much for my simpleton plug and play brain to use. I used 4 channels and that was it. So I got an artist 3203 with a couple of quick mods.
