    If I were auditioning guitarist and you showed up with that rig it would be hard to NOT hire you without hearing a note. And the curly white cord is 90% of it. Great rig. :cool:

    The amp sounds great, the guitar plays great and the chord just never get's tangled. What more could ask for?
    I however am just a basement basher. And if I was gigging I would never have a white rig. But its nice for the home.

    Actually I tried a 1224 W/ matching 2x12 cab a few years ago and was totally dissapointed , I could not get it to sound the way I wanted at all and it sounded like it had a heavy blanket thrown over it so I returned it . They do not come with a technical overview on how they operate ( somewhat complicated IMO ) so I may have missed something in the multiple settings and switches , some of which were not even marked :jo

    I'll stick with my Carr Slant 6V thanks :)

    Nice Matamps. I used to have a 1224MKii head with the matching vertical 2x12 cab.
