i though the JCM had a master volume? I think you can get a lot of gain out of it at any volume.

btw - nice guitar. Rics are awesome. I'm hoping to get a 325 at some point
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Master volume is just the volume control right before the poweramp or effects loop. Al it means is that you can max out the preamp gain, not the power amp.

i know, i thought he was talking about amount of distortion as opposed to the exact sound... maybe not.

Well, JCM's aren't particularly gainy in the preamp section though, so I'd assume he's trying to get the full distortion sound, including power amp saturation.
