i really wish they offered the VT80 without all the knobs and effects....if it only had a volume and a tone knob, id be all over it for a practice amp.

a good gibson out of the box is 100% better than a good new fender out of the box. set ups are horrendous on new fenders.

Sources tell me the current 2013 Gibsons are incredible, only the reissues of course. I love Gibson. Pio, don't get a solid state amp. They are for plebs.

if youre on a budget, those arent too shabby at all. However, i forget that Piob probably isnt on a budget. in that case...

Fender amps are only good with single coils, imo. 6L6 and 6V6 tubes pushed sound muddy with humbuckers. Essentially fender amps are made for Fender guitars.

I am on a budget. I have 10k worth of bagpipes I've not played much in a few years.

ehhhhh i gotta disagree. try a gibson with some P90s thru one. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

P-90's is a different story. I still find 6L6's to not sound great dirty. EL-34's all of the way. KT66 is a good midpoint.
post #1032 of 4997
Also, the best humbuckers sound very much like p-90's due to the mismatched coils.

If you semi-pros/long time hobbyists can't even decide on a pickup how's a noob to pick a single guitar he'll be satisfied with?

Also, those Vox have a tube power circuit.
