I'm no stranger to Boogie Marks and are really my go to for EVERYTHING. Once I started listening to tunes like Europa I knew I needed that smooth top end sound. I honestly thought I was done buying gear for my life until dialing in the FUCHS, playing through a mesa theile with a vintage EVM was something else. It was really the clean up and the character of the drive as I changed through pickups and the controls on the guitar that I just am not getting with my Boogies. Not better mind you, just different, but kind of the same thing, that smooth top end and forward mids. I was very impressed. Might have to sell off the Mark V!
