    Which lbx is best for a more of a hard rock 80s metal tone?

    LBX = 5150iii Blue and Red Channels (crunch and lead)

    LBXII = 5150iii Green and Blue Channels (clean and crunch)

    LBX-S = 5150iii Stealth Green and Red Channels (clean and higher gain red)

    So you’re probably best off with the original or the S.

    I think it also depends if you are using pedals or not. The LBXII for a clean + crunch, which you could then drive or clean boost for a lead, or the LBX S to then use a boost on the gain channel for a lead.

    Me personally, I would get one with a clean channel and also use a drive or boost pedal to get more channels out of it.

    For example, if you had a 5150 overdrive, you could get a crunch from the LBX S clean channel, and then still have the tube lead channel.

    I have LBX ii and love it...nice cleans/pedal platform and the blue channel is classic 80's/evh voiced IMO. Plus you have the concentric knobs which is a nice bonus.
    It's 5150 time!

    I agree 100%. I had the LBX, and you cannot get a usable clean tone out of it. With the LBX II, you have a great clean channel that takes overdrive pedals beautifully. If you are trying to get an 80s tone, I would say get an LBX II, a Freidman BEOD pedal, a Boss Digital Delay, a Boss Reverb and an EVH Chorus pedal. That ought to get you there.
