You actually could mic the 5150 III because it sounds great at very low volume. I had one for a year, so I know. I never tried it through my load box (THD Hot Plate) because I never had a need to....

Check out the Palmer stuff. It ain't cheap, but it's some of the best gear available. I had a PDI03 for years.

Makes me miss my '79 Gold Top even more. Those '70s LPs all seemed to play so well. Super quality instruments. That one looks like it's in amazing condition. Congrats!!!!

The playing is decent, but that has nowhere near the depth of the brown sound. Remember that a lot of EVH's tone is his aggressive pick attack on solos. The rhythm tone was somewhat VH-ish (as...
