I have been searching for a low(er) wattage head. Last night I played a matchless lightning for about four hours. It took me a bit to find some sweet spots on the eq but eventually it gave up some incredible tone with my LP and my Strat. It had to be pretty loud to really appreciate it but I was pleasantly rewarded. How does the Ghia compare? I don't really want as much head room as the Lightning (I have fenders for that), but it want tight bass and definition not flab or mud. How does the Ghia compare to an 18 watter, a Lightning or a tweed deluxe? Volume and head room wise?
