Part one: The Setting

The car slowly pulled into the parking lot of the busy shopping center, people in windbreakers and sweaters running to and fro, trying to complete their Christmas shopping.

I stepped out of my set, and I slowly walked across the gray landscape, dodging and weaving through metal beasts and frantic last minute shoppers.

There it was, "Music Go Round", the music store I constantly frequent, inside on one wall were orchestra instruments, and to the side of it, the acoustic guitars, parallel to that, were the electric guitars and basses, and under them were the amps, ranging from the humble Squier practice amp, to the massive Marshall fullstack in the corner, it was here that I began my journey, the journey to replace my Marshall AVT20 with a much better amp that I could afford with the measly amount of money that I was given by my parental units, a mere 350 dollars, American, not even enough to purchase a decent meal.

Part Two: A Very Boring Battle


With my trusty Les Paul in hand, I battled through the endless waves of Guitar Hero players, beginning kids, wannabe shredders and of course, the dreaded fire-breathing, princess stealing, defender of the castle... The Manager...

Ever watchful, he kept a close eye on me as I went from amp to amp, I knew I had to overcome my foe and fulfill the requirements of the journey that has been bestowed upon me.

Out of the corner of my eye, I spotted it... in the corner, by itself, it was too easy, I would sneak up on it and plug it with my high voltage rock and roll! But no, not everything goes as planned, it was horrible! It REFUSED to cooperate and it just stayed still. I angrily summoned the demon itself, The Manager, to help me tame this mighty beast. He grabbed it's tail and tied it to the wall, sending a surge through the monster that finally made it do what I want... it was perfect... it... made me feel complete, I felt like I could walk on to a real stage and play for hours to a screaming crowd.

I rolled it over to the beautiful dame behind the register, she gladly rang me up, I coughed up my money and rolled the amp over to the car, where my parental unit awaited to take me and my prize home, the rest? The rest is history...

TL;DR: FOUND AMP, LIKED IT, BOUGHT IT, PICTURES COMING SOON

But alas, my tale of bravery has forgotten to mention the mighty warriors and their incantations that helped me tame the beast.

The warriors and their incantations are...

Kiss: Duece
Kiss: Strutter
Kiss: Shock Me
Megadeth: Tornado of Souls
Iron Maiden: 2 Minutes to Midnight
Pantera: A New Level
Velvet Revolver: Slither
White Zombie: Super-Charger Heaven
Van Halen: On Fire

and last but not least, the might spell that helped me decide to make this my trophy...

Led Zeppelin: Black Dog

Unfortunately my time was limited and I couldn't complete any of these incantations and spells.

Actually it was my dad, the 350 was actually money I saved up that he gave me for my birthday and the money he gave me to buy myself a christmas present.

*ahem* I mean, the parental unit that drove me and gave me the money was actually my father, he drove me to the store and back home again.

I felt like I had to do something different for this NAD, because lately most of them have been "lol i just bought <insert amp here> no pic but it good"

And thanks, I love the amp, one of the best solid states you can get too.

nice one broseph, at least you did something unique instead of ripping off Matrix Claw like everyone else.

But why did you bring your LP? I wouldn't bother because i've yet to see a guitar shop that doesn't stock a Les Paul.

Thank you all for the positive comments, and to the person who asked why I brought my Les Paul, I brought it because everything in the Les Pauls they stock are, well, stock, though mine is pretty stock, the pickups are the Seymour Duncan Hot Rodded set, the metal covers were put on by me.

What did you expect from the director that made history's biggest sob film (which also is history's longest bladder blaster)?

Its like its like expecting Quentin Tarantino to make a sobby love flick that is devoid of guns, knifes, blood and gore!

Not all Les Pauls are the same. Very few of them come with my preferred Jazz/JB combo, for example. If I were getting a new amp, I'd need to know how my SD Jazz sounded through it first.

TS, brilliant NAD, but "parental unit" sounds silly, points off for that. However, that Mockingbird is sick, so points returned. High five.
