Also, I'm going to google that fuzz. :)

Yeah I’m one of few people who actually likes the blue LEDs but it didn’t look right with my green cabs on stage. The Iommi pedal can push into fuzz territory but I’m currently loving it boosting my amp gain or post fuzz to really turn a big muff into a huge muff

I'm a young, able dude. But the vt22 is where I draw the line for amp weight.

So. Fucking. Heavy.

Equally as loud. Enjoy it!

i'm not feeling as young as I used to when lifting this thing on top of my 412 cab either....debating about putting some Neos in it but not sure yet....doesn't have original speakers (has a weber blue and Tonker)...was considering tonkerlites...

Eminence now has a neo mag version of their EVM-12L clone, the EM12N. I fricking love my vintage EVM, except for the weight. If they're close, I'd happily take whatever small downgrade to avoid herniating a disk.

Good looking out. Thanks for this tip

After a shitty couple weeks gear-wise (ebay seller bailing on me on an amp I need and a rare bass I bought from GC being in way worse condition than advertised so I had to return it), I now have a Driving Notion and SEA inbound. Here's hoping.

Ive been so in love with my 79 Ibanez St-50 I threw down a bid on another one off Ebay and won it. I wasnt expecting too. :lol: :lol: So needless to say I have this beast landing in the next week or so. I own more guitars 79-89 than current production ones :yay:

Thanks, my other 79 Studio is my favorite guitar. So i figured why not get a backup to it! I also have a 80 Destroyer the early 80's late 70's ibanez's before they introduced the Sabre and RG are just killer guitars for the money!

so i decided that since i still have money left over from my bonus, i should pick up an amp that's easier to transport and more dependable than my Laney which has been having what i think are tube problems. i found a Vox AC15 on the Guitar Center site and am having it sent to the GC in Richmond, where i'll pick it up. this one has a Celestion greenback, which is my favorite speaker and should give the amp a nice smooth response. and it's a 12" as well, which is my preferred size. i'm really looking forward to not worrying about my amp, and not having to carry a 60-pound Laney amp back and forth to the car. the AC15 is only 48 lb.

I know this isn’t the place for it, but what’s the benefit of shipping to a local GC as opposed to your home? Safety issues with packages being left at home? It’s not cheaper, at least I don’t think it is...maybe I’m wrong

It used to be free to ship items between stores, but hasn't been for a few years now. Not much point anymore unless you live in a place where packages might get lifted or want to hide the purchase from your wife (which, having worked in guitar stores for years, is a real thing).
