Hi all as I said in a post about Nick's singer songwriter workshop the reason I can't go is that I have just bought my first electric guitar since I had an Epiphone back when I was 17 but sold it about a year later. Having played acoustic for these last 34 years I have gone a bit mad and bought a Fender Jim Adkins Thinline JA90 which I will be picking up from the shop on Christmas eve, very excited. My problem is I know diddly squat about electric guitars but most of all absolutely nadda about amps. When trying out the guitars in the shop I got to use a Fender Deluxe VM Guitar Combo 40 watt Amplifier which the guy in the shop set up for me and I really liked the sounds it made but it does cost a serious whack of dosh. So I'm wondering if there is something cheaper but similar that I should be trying out in my local guitar shops. Thanks in advance for any advice you guys can give.
