I dont think you are supposed to plug more than one guitar into it. THey are made that way so yo ucan use patch cables to get a different sounds.
My Gear:
Gibson SG special (W/ S.D. Jazz(N) & JB (B))
Mesa-Boogie Solo Triple Rec. (with EL-34's)
Boss DD-6 Digital Delay
Boss TU-2 Chromatic tuner
(what else do i need)

Well i think bands used to ues them for vocals, guitars and other stuff because they didnt have enough money for lots of equipment so id say it should be ok to try at least two guitars but im not certain
MIA Fender Strat
Yamaha FG-450S
Crafter 12 string
Orange Rocker 30 combo
Vox AC30CC2
Epi Valve Junior
Fulltone Clyde
Danelectro Free Speech
T.C. Electronic Vintage Dual Distortion
Boss MIJ GE-7 (c1987)
Boss TU2
MXR Phase 90

Google it and look up it's history and specs.

If you can't be certain, play it safe and plug one in.

Yea just play it safe and plug one in, no point risking it.

And where/how did you get an original AC30?

Check serial number.
A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a closed-minded moron.
#15
yea, check the serial number, speaker cone numbers, etc

there's definitely a way to do it by yourself
#16
oooo cool i didnt think of the speeker cone numbers and you cant date by the vox serial number iv tryed well not since last time i checked neways!

EDIT: ok just checked the cone numbers and there backwards and blured! lol

It's ok to plug 6 in. They were made to do that, back when amps were very expensive. People frequently ran the entire band through one amp- bass, guitars, and vocals. Still, just to be careful with such a treasure I wouldn't plug more than 2 or three in at once and certainly don't do bass or vocals.

The thing you are talking about with the patch cables is bridging. There is usually a high and low input for each channel. Plug your guitar into one of the inputs, now plug the patch cable from the other input on the channel and run it into another channel. This way you can control the volumes of two channels (if they have individual controls) and shape your sound a bit more. I think it also helps get more gain out of the amp IIRC.

oooooo cool yeh eatch chanel has to imputs high and low so would i have to patch a low and a low or a high and a high?

IIRC, you usually mix them. so if your using the low in one channel for example, plug the high of that channel into the low of another channel. I think that's right.
