And that wasn't obvious from the start? I hardly think even the most optimistic, pro-change people would think the changes made to the 2015 product line would catch on.

One thing to be said about Engl cabs is that they're HEAVY. Compared to your typical Marshall 1960A that's listed as weighing 36 kg, the Engl one typically weighs 50 kg for the standard ones and 63...

I'd probably recommend you the Squier Vintage Modified Series on that budget, if you want to buy new. Otherwise, a Fender Standard Strat would be a good option.

Pedal tuners are more than just a tuner. They are a simple way to cut signal to the amp, which is extremely useful when you're switching guitars in a live setting, making it's quiet between songs etc.

And that's why "true bypass" is more complicated than it seems. If your signal has a long path to travel before it reaches the amp, you will need something to keep the signal strength up - a boost to...

Super-cool!

Is the neck oil-finished or satin poly? I believe the MIJ were satin poly, as I haven't seen the typical dirty spots on those, but T00DEEPBLUE is free to correct/confirm.
