    Ultimate ____________ ????

    Versatility ? Blues amp? What?
    For me it's the Bogner Xtcy.

    Nope....Here are some helpful hints.

    1. Used to play out...not currently...small clubs when I do/did
    2. Love a good clean, enjoy a smooth overdrive.

    Honestly on the way there I thought I was going for a Z, but not what I ended up taking home.

    I liked the Z stuff except the Rx jr.....uncontrollable brightness. Seriously uncontrollable.

    Either the Jet combo or the 9/15. Since you mentioned not needed tons of volume.

    I am guessing the Jet based on the fact you stated that you weren't currently playing out...but hey, even if I wasn't playing out, I wouldn't hesitate picking up the Sig. Either way, congrats!
