I'm going after this as my next amp. It's the best one I could find on my budget, but I tried it at my local guitar store and I fucking loved it! https://shop.fender.com/en-US/guitar-amplifiers/contemporary-digital/mustang-gt-100/2310200000.html

Boss katana is better imo. Try one out

Here in brazil, when it comes to music, everything is VERY expensive. There's marshall's amps that costs the same as new car (Around 20k U$$). And we are not even talking about the worst gibson or epiphone you can get, that costs the same as motorbike. 

Thus said, I have to play in studios, 'cause in long terms, they're much more cheaper than the cheapest fender (amp or guitar) that you can find here ('round 1k U$$)

So, my type of sound is very doomish, sounds a lot like The Obsessed with flavours of Black Sabbath and even Electric Wizard. I love to play in Orange CR120 Pro, 'cause they have the sound I want to hear, very fuzzy, 70's sound-a-like. But sometimes, I'm "obliged" to play in Marshall JCM 900, wich doesn't sound as good as an orange, IMO. Marshall's and Laney's are very "stuffy" for my ears. I like it dark, I like it fuzzy, but I also want to hear EVERYTHING my guitars can make, and so, I want it to be very clear, in therms of Treble to Low Range. 
Speakin' about it, I have 2 guitars.  One is an Epiphone Les Paul Special I, 2001. With gotoh tunning system equiped, she's never out of tune. I know, everyone talks shit about this model, but the thing is : Yes, it doesn't sound as loud as a Gibson, or even Epi LP Standard, but it has a VERY BLUESY sound. I have one friend that said it was the worst guitar ever, i gave him the guitar, and within' five minutes, he said that was actually, pretty good.  Unfortunatelly, she's not that loud to play what i want to play, so i had to buy another guitar, wich an English "Golden GSD". They actually took a gibson SG, made an exact copy, and then, changed the headstock and pickups, and there you go. It sounds as good as any other SG, and is loud as fuck, specially with wilkinson humbuckers and Andreas Kisser's (Sepultura) strings.

I did the unthinkable - I traded the Jubilee.

I played through the new Vox AC30SI at my local shop and fell in love with that pure Class A drive. I’ve always loved the AC30 but in its regular form always thought it “too much” for my purposes. Now this is the best of the Vox AC30 in a condensed package. Toss an Overdrive in front and you can still match the Jubilee type thing, but I don’t play with a lot of gain anyways.

Spent two hours A/B’ing the amps with various riffs, pedals, and so on. The Vox won every time, China made be damned. In comparison, my Jubilee combo sounded very boxy with little room to breathe. Almost like a pedal was always switched on or something. The clarity of the Vox just astounded me.

So I’m a Vox man now with zero regrets. I’ve been playing the fuck out of it.

Wow! Hey man, its always good to find new gear that clicks! Id love a Mini Jub one day but I do think they are too expensive. AC30 is 2x12. Right? So that is definitely a huge sound

I also made the plunge and bought a Helix LT yesterday. I'm really in over my head lol

PRS SEs are really great guitars

Yeah, played one the other week and fell in love! Glad you're enjoying the helix, I have had about an hour on one through a powered FRFR speaker and it was immense. Would love to have one to play around with.

I have an SE, and have played several more. They aren't as nice as the US PRS, HOWEVER (caps intentional) they seriously play about as well as almost any Gibson I've played. They are fantastic.

Good to know, the one I played was very nice; I bet the US ones are something special though.

I agree that the SEs are without a doubt some of the best sub $1000 guitars you can buy.
