How do they compare in terms of tone? Can you get a decent marshall tone out of the V3? And does it do really creamy lead tones? Any input would be appreciated.
Thanks

Haven't heard the V3 but it seems to be more suited to shred and versatilility. The Gh is better at blues up to hard rock.

Paul Gilbert disagrees with your remarks about shred and the GH50L.

However; if you need a clean tone the V3 is a better choice, the GH50L has no clean channel.

I disagree with his remarks about shred and the GH50L!

The GH50L can do amazing shred tones and incredible rhythm tones. It can do anything from blues to br00tal metal.

For sure, the GH50L was pretty badass when I tried it.

The V3 is probably a better option though if you need a clean channel. I think you can put EL-34s in it right? That would make it sound more like a Marshall like you want

The GH50L can get a clean sound too though. Just roll back the volume on your guitar a bit.

The way I'm setting my GH50L when I get a Keeley TS9DX and Keeley DS1 is I'm going to have a moderately overdriven tone on the amp (with the drive switch off), then I'll be able to choose any combination of the TS9DX, DS1 and the amp's drive switch as added gain. And for a clean sound, I'll just use the moderately overdriven tone of the amp and roll back my volume a bit.

I was saying the V3 is more suited to shred, not the GH can't do shred. Besides I own a VH so I know what they can do.
