    The answer is that they are all amp designer/builders or guitar cabinet makers, and that they are all located in North Carolina.. I just find this interesting..They are also some of the finest guitar amplifiers built anywhere on the planet..any comments? and who did I leave out?

    Top Hat, Bitar, Auble, Evans, Splawn, and I'm sure I'm leaving somebody out, are all in NC as well.

    We also have McInturff, Briggs, McNaught, Zion, Gadow, Motorave, JET, Roscoe, Zvex, Pharoah, etc... here too.

    I believe that a large majority of major furniture manufactures are located there as well. I think it has something to do with the wood available.
