    I guess yeah, a Marshall or something similar. If AC/DC is classic rock (and to me they are the pinnacle of classic rock), then a Marshall is the ticket.

    But now that I think about it. This is 2011, man, anything from the 80's and 90's is now classic, so maybe some Mesa amps and Kustoms and Randalls and Peaveys could be considered "classic rock amps" as well... lol...

    I'm a 70s/80s American Rock guy who isn't too into the British stuff, so for me the ideal Classic Rock amp is a Fender tube amp. I'm going to say a Fender Blackface Super or Twin Reverb or a Tweed Bassman or Twin. But honestly I'm more of a California Rock (Eagles) and Texas Blues guy as I prefer Fenders to Marshalls, Oranges, or Mesas and anything else.
