I'm brainstorming ideas for a Christmas gift. The recipient is a fan of 80's hair metal (Van Halen especially) and has a guitar but no amp for playing at home. Sound quality is the thing I'm after, it doesn't need to be too loud. [more inside]

I have a Marshall Valvestate 20 (8020) practice guitar amp. The built-in reverb has stopped working, producing just noise when you turn it up and a sort of wobbly sound if you bump the amp. Also the amp itself has a lot of hum, which goes away when I touch the strings. I'm too cheap/broke to get it fixed but know how to use a screwdriver and a sodering iron. Suggestions?
