It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

there are loads of them. what's your price range, and what tones do you like?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

i tried out the ENGL screamer 50 head into a THD 2x12 locally, and the cleans were very very good. Very nice distortion too. Although that amp is little too modern and bright sounding for my taste, but something to look into.

I suggest going for a head and cab setup. Combos are a really bitch to lug around.
