    Ok I need some insight/help on this years Christmas present. I can choose either an amp or guitar. Currently I own a 1993 Gibson Les Paul Custom, 2011 Fender Road Worn 50's Strat, 2013 Fender American Strat, 2008 Fender Mexican Telecaster Standard. My Amps are a Fender Blues Jr Texas Red edition, a Peavey classic 30, Peavey ValveKing Micro Head with Epiphone Jr. 1X12 Cab. I have my eye on a Baja Telecaster in Blonde 799$ or an Orange Or15h head 699$ and 1X12 Orange Cab375$. Both of these I have been wanting for a while now just never been offered a big present like this. Which would you guys choose?

    Given your choices, the Baja wins hands down.

    Your other path would be to scrounge up more money and buy something more expensive in the way of an amp, something big, clean and heavy, USA used Fender tube amp such as a Super Reverb reissue.

    I buy at amps at least 4 to 1 to guitars. I tend to keep my guitars much longer. My thought would be your need a vintage silverface Fender amp. Enjoy the quest.

    Ooh...tough one! I think you have 2 decent combo amps, and 4 decent guitars. If I was in your situation, I'd probably go for a guitar that I don't have, such as a 335/style or SG/style guitar with P-90s. As for amps, I'd look into the Vox AC-15 CC2.

    Is this kind of like the Beetlejuice or "There's no place like home" thing? Just keep repeating your request until someone answers the way you want, or your gifts magically appear? :lol:



    Find a happy place! Find a happy place! FIND A HAPPY PLACE!!! :D

    The REAL question is: Are you a serious Player or a Gear Collector? If you are a collector, avoid going to music stores and telling strangers about your Gear. Flip a coin!

    The Player asking your question probably should purchase LESSONS.

    Given the choices I would go for the amp.

    Myself Id sell all the other amps + use the money for the new guitar and get Muchxs here on the forum to build me a Metropoulos/ValveStorm JTM45 kit.
