    Back in the early '80's,a local rock band had a guitarist that gigged with a Gibson SG through a Risson solid state halfstack.The setup gave up some real volume and had some serious gain,sustain and harmonic content.I do remember being quite impressed by his overdriven tones.

    Bob was pretty well known in the OC in the 80's. He modded a Fender Bassman for me back in the day, and made an amp for my buddy. Cool guy, great amps.
