    Nice guitars, POS amp?

    I should be buying a quality amp, but I keep getting enticed by nice guitars. For example, I've got these customs (Oni, KxK, Carvin, VF Guitarworks) and play them through a 2x10" Crate TD-50C that I've had since about 1993.

    I think the deal is that I dont play out anymore, and I'm in an apartment. My ex that I lived with had me sell the Mesa Recto / Marshall cab / Rack because it took up space. But that shouldnt stop me from buying a nice combo now, right?

    I've saved some dollars for a nice amp, but I'm eyeballin' the Benedetto Bambino, and the Heritage Sweet 16 and stuff like that. I cant stop!

    Anyone else do this? Craptacular gear with sweet guitars?

    I've got the opposite, or something like that. Mesa cab and Blue Voodoo, but only decent or terrible guitars. That's just the luck of the (CENSORED CLICHE), though.

    No, and I never could. I could own a great amp and a crappy guitar, but I can't do the great guitar crappy amp thing.

    You're missing out on a lot of the joy of those nice instruments. Get a nice combo or something.

    Since two of my guitars were stolen, I'm in the decent guitar / excellent amp arena.

    I'm in the same camp. ESP Horizon FR-II and Ibanez S540LTD into a Line6 Flextone 2. I also keep browsing for guitars all the time instead of amps

    I've always been in the "decent guitars, great amp" category.
