And it sounded phenomenal. Though I don't quite understand the switching on top of every knob. Played through it with: 2012 White Falcon 2014 Rickenbacker 620 1964 ES 345 2015 Telecaster Standard Know what sounded the best? The Tele! Wild, I know. Every amp I played after it just sounded no good in comparison. Question? A few, actually. One, what does this amp do that is so special? Two, is it all hand made/point to point/etc? I see that it is made by an outfit owned by the guys who do Fano. Three, what is a more reasonably priced alternative? Anything by Top Hat?
