I recently picked up a Marshall AVT105H from a friend for pretty cheap, came with a nice cab as well. I own a Line 6 UX2, and I'm not too pleased with amp models that are designed for metal... I was wondering if it was possible to connect my head directly to my interface and just go from there.

I'm honestly confused. So you don't like the Line 6 amp models?

Hi. Can someone tell me which guitars are real 24 fret guitars and which are just 22 fret guitars with 2 extra frets added on?

you just won the lotto, your amp has a cab emulated speaker out if it's a newer one.

if it's an older one it just looks like it has an effects loop, so just run a line from the effects loop send to the interface.

now the bad news, prob won't sound much better than the line 6. but don't take my word for it, try it and see if you like it.

Yeah, it does have a cab emulated output. If it doesn't sound any better than the line 6 I'll probably just mic the half stack.

What's there to be confused about? And no, I don't like any of the amp models geared towards metal. Insane is alright, but all I can seem to get out of it is a lot of distortion and no tone.

If you are talking about plugging an amp head directly into an audio interface instead of hooking it up to a cab, then thats a definite NO NO NO - running an amp head without a speaker cab attached will destroy the head. All that juice coming from your transformer will have nowhere to go, causing flyback, which usually equates to bang followed by smoke.

My amp has a cab emulator output, so that may or may not prevent that from happening. I really haven't tried it yet.
