Sure. Quality always makes a difference. It's just less noticeable if the rest of your signal chain is crap.

It's probably the best position ergonomically, look at how straight the wrists stay and the natural shoulder/elbow positioning. There's a reason it's called classical, it's been developed and used...

Do you mind buying used? You can get a decent starter set new for your budget but you could get a decent upgrade buying used gear.

If not, I would suggest a Yamaha Pacifica and a Peavey Vypyr.

The sag is absolutely a radical difference in sound but I would not call it necessary. If you're not sure, I wouldn't pay extra for it.

I would start with V2, I suspect that the fizz is coming from the sheer number of gain stages so knocking down stages 2 and 3 might help. Wouldn't hurt to try in the PI and V1, but I suspect your...

Not if the truss rod is adjusted properly.

That's probably less tension than the factory setup anyway.

It depends on the daisy chain. That's why you do it strategically - chain your tuner with the chorus, for example. Those shouldn't have any parasitic noise together. You would not want to chain the...

B3 will totally fit on your guitar. Bigsby doesn't make the distinction because they'd rather just tell you to use the B7 than deal with guitars individually.

I am going to slap you if you put a B7 on a Gretsch product. B3 B3 B3. Space control bridge if it fits.

B7s are for Gibsons. Gretsches shouldn't have pressure bar Bigsby units.

That's plenty loud, you can definitely get the amp cooking at those volumes.

Since both amps still work you're ok, usually it's a matter of no damage or big smoky mess. Glad nothing was broken, that's definitely what I was worried about reading the first post.

Oh, it definitely sounds good, but I think the reason (or at least to me anyway) it sounds good is that stereo separation. It makes a huge difference. The chorus itself, I mean - just the circuit in...

Doubt you'll find one. The unique thing about the JC is that it's got a stereo chorus, which you're not going to get through a mono amp. You need to replicate the stereo separation, not the actual...

If it still works then you did nothing. If it doesn't work then you broke it.

Don't worry. Don't do it again, either, though :p:
