Hey guys. I need a good loud amp for doing some live shows in smallish venues. I will probably not be playing with a drummer, just one other guitarist. What kind of wattage do I need? 50ish?

I was hoping for a tube amp, but is that not possible to get a loud enough one for under $500?

That amp looks pretty good but it's not tubes and I'm concerned that the sound might get muddy at high volumes. Anyone have amp suggestions for $300-500?

Also I was looking at guitars, I can't really decide between the two following guitars (and no, I'm not going to get both :lol:):

Any thoughts? I want a guitar that is good for rocking out and making spacey sounds as well.

Thanks all
