Ok, this is the Miscellaneous section, so I believe it's ok to post my thread here... On Friday, I ordered 2 items re: Black Friday sales: 1) A Warwick-Rockbass Alien 6 from Bass Alien. I've already posted threads regarding this item in the Basses threads http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f8/just-placed-order-warwick-rockbass-alien-6-bass-alien-935138 and the sponsored Warwick threads http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f238/just-placed-order-warwick-rockbass-alien-6-bass-alien-935139 2) I didn't mention yet. I wanted to own at least one guitar. I saw a great price at Sweetwater. I bought a new Gibson Les Paul Studio in Fireburst for $599. It's only for my home/personal use so I think a Studio model is fine for me. Now, I need an amp. What are decent amps these days? I'm only interested in a 1 or 2 speaker combo amp, nothing elaborate. I didn't want to bother signing up & asking in a guitar forums. I'm already comfortable with my TalkBass community & didn't feel like being subjected to "Elite Guitarist Scrutiny". Besides, I know a lot of you play both guitar and bass. Marshall is on my mind, as they seem to go hand-in-hand with Gibson. But I've seen a lot of Orange amps pop up in music stores over the past while & I'm not too familiar with their quality.
