Man, what a GREAT amp. Our local store had a 40% off sale, and we were able to get a little more skimmed off of the price. Took it home and plugged the Strat into it. Oooh, nice. Same thing with the Tele. Then we tried out the R9 Lester. ZOOM ZOOM! What a team those two make! Guitar, cord, amp. Beauty. My wife is going to be gone most of Saturday and I plan on taking advantage of the situation as early (and as long) as possible. My ears are going to be RINGING....!
