In the last 2 weeks I got a Marshall JCM900 and a Les Paul Standard Traditional Plus. I traded a Les Paul Special for the Marshall and sold a Roccaforte Custom 18 combo for the LP Standard. Now I finally have my LP and Marshall.....I'm good!

I've played the SE30 a couple of times and really liked it. The clean channel is really nice and the gain channel will get some pretty heavy tones. The gain channel did have a little fizziness to it, but I think that breaking the speaker in would take care of that. If I were amp shopping, it...
I've been using Pro Cables N Sound (http://www.greatcables.us/)cables for a couple of years now and am very happy with them. Also use a few Lava cables, great stuff, and Mark is a great guy.
I haven't seen or heard of PRS cables, but I will have to hunt one down and give it a try. Thanks...
