I bought my first guitar and it's on the way, so I'd also like to buy an amp also. I'd like one that will sound decent but won't cost be a ton. I know under $200 won't get me much but I'm on a budget and I want to learn also.

The guitar is an Epiphone Les Paul Special 2 and I already have my dads Epiphone Sheraton so something that would fit well with these two guitars would be amazing! Thanks fellas.

And one more. I'm a rock/metal guitarist. My signal chain is :

-Gibson LP Custom
-Dunlop Crybaby
-TC Polytune2
-Maxon ST9 Pro Plus
-MXR Phase 90
-Boss RC3
-Orange TH30
>And a TC Flashback x4 in the FX loop

I think I need a Compressor ... sor-pedals for playing mellow stuff a la Metallica's Sanitarium, now I understand they probably use a chorus, but I feel a comp on the clean channel would be better overall and more flexible for mellow stuff on general. Also, I hear comps help with clean sustain, which I want for soloing.
The bods CS3 is the obvious choice, but I would like a few pointers/suggestions to make sure. The MXR comps seem like a good alternative and have less knobs as well. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
