I know a lot of you guys don't really care for the Mesa Amps, but the other guitarist in my band has been driving me crazy to check this amp out, and I checked out the harmony central reviews and they were all great. I'm considering buying the Mark IV head. The tones I'm after are...Robben Ford, Scott Henderson, Trey from Phish, John Scofield, Jimmy Herring, and Mike Stern, great Santana leads. I know it's a very wide mix of players and sounds, but do you think this amp can get me close to these tones...can you guys vent on the positives and negatives of this amp...and I'm more than willing to put out more money for pedals if I have to. Thanks!!!
