    For those that picked one of these up...do you still have it ? If so, what do you like best about it ? If not, what did you not like ?

    Liked it, but I have sold it because of its weight and size.

    yup, still got it. Not crazy about the clean channel... makes a good low to medium "crunnch" channel though. The blue channel is a no-brainer, just a great basic rock tone. The red channel is very gainy and aggressive- works good as either a lead channel counterpart to the blue channel, or as a very aggressive pissed off metal tone.

    Yes, I love the clean channel with Volume at 12:00 and gain at 7-8 o'clock. Has a similar gain structure to an SLO, with a midrange voicing which I assume makes it brown sounding. Perfectly matched with the 5150 III cabinet, in ivory of course :D

    Still got mine, 6-7 months and counting! It's the only amp I haven't traded off or sold yet!

    I still have mine. The blue and red channels are just a blast. The other day I put my Keeley Katana in front of the blue channel, and that was very neat.
