Rofl, i really cant imagine solid gold being good for tone. Or especially easy to carry around, not that you'd want to with a fvcking chasis made from 50 grands worth of gold..

Gold is far too much of a sissy metal. They should make one cast entirely from pig iron to bring teh br00tz.

Nauseating vulgarity. Is there anything more obscene than defining your worth with what you own instead of what you do?

Didn't he also pay a shitload for a handwired vox or something?

Oh, and in celebration of Festivus;

we both disagree with him, true. but thats no reason to bring up a bunch of stuff that isnt relative to this thread. im tempted to report you, but i wont....this time.

O_o You aren't familiar with Festivus, are you? It wasn't completely serious. Well kind of, but not in a 'fuck you lets have a flame war' way. >_<

And generally I dislike de-railing threads (especially outside the Pit) but I'm not sure what else to contribute to this...

I don't really think it'd be good for tone. Can't base that off anything really, but in my mind it doesn't make any sense...

Gold is 2.54 on the Pauling scale that measures electronegativity. Aluminum? A mere 1.61.

I submit that this would improve tone almost as much as red knobs.

Honestly, it's the only way I can see it affecting the tone since it's not in the signal path. How much, I can't say but I'll take a stab in the dark and say that EJ probably wouldn't even be able to notice. This would probably anger TGP, seeing as how they could go with the Dumble instead.

I can't see any tonal differences then. I know it's aesthetic but if I pay 50k, I'd expect at least a bit of a tonal upgrade from the normal model. Maybe some free NOS tubes are in order instead of the 1k extra?

Although, it's worth noting that Aluminum is paramagnetic, where Gold is diamagnetic. So, aluminum can become magnetic in the presence of a magnetic field, which can be found in amps. Gold creates a magnetic field that opposes the applied magnetic field.

I wonder how this changes tone...
