    Okay, I play guitar and bass, I find myself to be more into guitar than bass... even though i'm probably better at bass than guitar and probably not too good at either. I recently came across a bit of money thanks to graduation and am now contemplating purchasing a new amp. Here are what I currently own for amps....

    Rogue bottom of the line crap amp (if not for the handy built in tuner, i'd have set this on fire by now)
    Crate GFX 15 (can't handle anything lower than an Eb on my 5 string even on lower volumes)
    A borrowed Harmony (20w?) strangely, this amp isn't that bad considering it's from a horrible brand name.

    I was considering getting a Marshall G 80 RCD.

    I would use this amp for playing alone at home at unnecessarily loud volumes, and maybe jamming with friends. I probably would not gig with it, major reason being, i have no band. I am wondering if anybody could give me feedback on this amp. thanks.

    I've seen 'em in catalogs and, from the looks of them, I don't think they're going to sound too great. That's just how I feel. Other people may have better reasons why they don't sound good.
