The lad is over the moon with his Birthday guitar (thanks @uberscott ) and also got nearly £100 from various family members - what might he expect to find as a good used buy for a bedroom amp with those funds?
He'll doubtless want to be able to make both clean and crunchy sounds. Nothing with menus.
What would you be looking out for?
