If your looking for hi-gain guitar sounds, pick up a used Peavey 5150 for around $500 and get a 4x12 loaded with Celestion Vintage 30's. The Mesa Standard 4x12 cabinet is recommended for it's larger size.

Also, check into the Peavey Windsor. It very very similar to a JCM800 but will only cost you $400 brand new.

Here are some clips this guy made of the Windsor and 5150.

"Miking was a combo 57/Md421, straight on the same speaker. Preamp was a pair of API 512c's, and yes, they're quad tracked."
