I've always had an interest in the GW.The option of having both HRM and non HRM modes in one amp is very appealing to me as I dig both equally.Plus there are other options galore that make the SOD quite unique and very flexable. I wasn't really looking for one but,as fate may have it,I was contacted about one for sale and asked if I was interested.Of coarse,so I bought it. Marc and I both agreed it would be a good idea for it to go to Gary first for a checkup and possibly updated.It's a version 1. Needless to say I'm very excited about getting the amp. Thanks Marc. Again thanks to Scott for just being Scott.:AOK You've always been extemely helpful to me and I learn a lot each time we talk.Thanks man.I'm grateful. Just wanted to share my excitement with y'all. Back to enjoying some Modelo Especial. Cheers.
