yes, i believe they recently started "The Valve USA" or some crap to ship/sell them to/in the states... not sure if it was a customs issue, liscencing, or what?

but anyhow, yes, we're talking about the same thing. i'm not going to find them anytime soon over here. mind posting a review if you ever get to play one in the store you mentioned?

i'm being told they can do AC30 cleans AND modded Marshall-esque tones... call me skeptical.
