    I can't view it either. But Jonathan emailed me a pic earlier. Man, that's a red yummy mini stack o' goodness.

    Enjoy the z28, man. I miss it.

    Nice Sicktone - lookin' pretty red to me! Change out the ef86 from stock to something NOS in the Z-28, you won't regret it.

    My Channel switcher in waiting. I need something to switch between heads. What are you using? I have heard good things about the Headbone and the Axess Headswitcher.

    What a great rig! Taco is right .... this may be the best "channel switcher" rig one can come up with.

    As a side note .... Brad Paisley uses a Z-28 for his clean tones live in some pretty darn large shows.

    Holy S**T Myles, that Paisley rig is crazy. Note the Z-28 volume dimed. How does he get a clean tone out of that? Mine dimed through an airbrake is about as far from clean as you can get.

    I hope you disinfected it well....Taco is prone to playing naked and he doesn't use his hands to adjust the knobs when he is playing if you know what I mean.

    I have heard it and played it. In fact, in about 30 minutes Brad Paisley is going to be here for a visit and we have one standing by that will be his 4th in his rig that I finished tweeking over the last two days for him.

    We have played Teles, Strats, Les Pauls, and other things through it with a bunch of different cabs. We lined up Aspen's Vox originals and found we could get the same tone and feel also off the Stingray as an AC-30/4. Using a Stingray head on a Vox AC-30 combo using the combo as a speaker cab we could dial in the Stingray for the same tones. Sort of a cheap and reliable way to get a vintage Vox AC-30 amp.

    The low level input gives LOTS of clean headroom if you need it.

    It is a very cool amp to say the least.
