Bogneristas, I currently have a 20th Shiva. Amazing. Love it. BUT...I played an XTC for the first time the other day and it is more "me". My influences are early EVH, Eric Johsnon, Allan Holdsworth, and pre-Fender Clapton. The XTC made me sound even more like me, or the sound I hear in my head at least. If you could combine the sound of early EJ with Fair Warning...which is a tall order... My 20th is a tone monster, but it seems a bit more aggressive than the sounds I'm going after. For instance, I've gotten great tones out of my old SLO in the past, but that amp is a one-trick-pony. Anyway, which model would fit my needs best? If you are completely bored you can check out my playing style here: http://www.youtube.com/user/iamrondodson Thanks a ton.
