Precisely why I'm looking at a head/bottom setup - a bit more expensive than a combo (the V22 is heavy, BTW - with the replacement Swamp Thang speaker mine scales in at 53 pounds - but they're built like tanks) but you have the advantage of being able to distribute the weight. FYI the V22 is available as a head (interestingly enough, for the same price as the combo), and there's also the G20 box (Marshall-type) head, which offers more control over gain/tone parameters for a bit less money; unfortunately the excellent 112TS 1x12" 80W cabinet has been discontinued (the larger/heavier 212TS is still available), but one of these should make a good match:

FYI it's also available at 20% off for Columbus Day, so you might want to call MF and see if they can put together a package deal - and for those in the market for a scaled-down Gretsch, they're also running the G5657T "Tiny Tennie" for $649 this weekend:

The CS-336 is a fantastic instrument, I have one. Because it's body is "tonally carved" from a solid piece of mahogany and its top is solid maple, it can sound very clear and articulate. Some think that tone-wise it lies between a 335 and a Les Paul. I would agree. Its size is very convenient for an averaged sized player

The other dual humbucker guitar I would recommend trying is the Gibson SG. It is smaller and more comfortable in my opinion than a Les Paul and it can excel at just about any type of music. And they sound great sound with either P-90 or humbucker pickups. The SGs are a whole lot of Gibson bang for you buck. There is a reason why it is their most popular model, Certain models also come in other colors besides red if you are worried about the horned aesthetic in church.
