Heard a band play a Carvin V3 100w on a mesa cab. It was the rhythm guitarist who was playing it, and it obviously slaughtered the Line6 that the lead guitar was on. Maybe it was because I heard like 4 Krankensteins before the V3, but really I had also heard a 5150 that night too, and I was still thoroughly impressed by the V3. So I just went to the Carvin website to check its price, and correct me if I'm making a huge mistake, but it looks like it's only a thousand bucks??? http://www.carvinguitars.com/products/single.php?product=V3 I've never even ordered an amp from a company before, I always go with equipment that I can test drive first. Kind of a dumb question, but tell me something about direct, sale, and listed prices because there's gotta be some kind of catch. This amp is too good to be true. Also, any experience?
