So I sold my mesa roadster head and I have no amp right now. I am trying to get new amp or amps(maybe pursue the stereo setup)

 

I am looking for an amp that has great clean and takes pedals like a champ

 

If I stay mono setup I can get:

 

1) Mesa lonestar classic or special

2) Dr. Z maz 38

 

If I stay stereo setup I can get:

1)Fender HRD 1x12 or Fender 65 Princeton

2)Vox ac15 with greenback

 

Or I can just keep on using the backup 70's fender bassman I have or just use the tiny terror with a fender amp.

 

Am I missing any nice clean amps to check out? Any suggestion?

I played an ac15 with greenbacks and it sounded great on the neck and middle position for a sg. But a bit too much highs on the bridge pickup

 

Solution? Different amps for each pickup. You need a stereo guitar with 2-pickups in stereo and EQ it separately.

 

Then, and only then, will you get to {censored} the prom queen.

Don't have an amp? Here's how to get one from HCFX in 5 easy steps:

 

1. Grow terrible facial hair;

2. Record youtube videos that are more awkward than your father striking your mother at the dinner table;

3. In said youtube videos, plug an awful guitar into a karaoke machine, then tap the 8th string, sounding similar to the Blade Runner Theme;

3. Post here in totally incoherent, punctuation-less blurbs;

4. Receive amps and rare pedals;

5. Laugh all the way home.

I very much like the idea of the Princeton/AC-15 stereo set-up.

 

I do this. :)

 

I actually do it a couple of different ways... my usual live setup is an AC15cc with a Weber Blue Dog AlNiCo plus a Princeton Reverb II (20W) with the factory-upgrade E/V speaker. Sometimes I'll use a '71 Princeton Amp with a RI Jensen C10R instead of the PRII. That's more likely if the venue is smaller or when I'm recording, although I use the PRII when recording a lot too.

 

The pairing of a Vox and a Fender together does work really well in stereo, and the AC15 / PRII combo is loud enough to easily hang with a rock band / drummer, and if the venue's too large for that pair, they'll probably have a decent PA to mic you through.
