    What the world needs is a PRS version of a real-deal, vintage AC30.

    “Would you buy one, Les?”

    “Obviously. I’m 100% sure that PRS would get their hands on a Beatle AC30, for the sake of authenticity, and clone it, thereby making me delirious with joy, and allowing me to die in peace and satisfaction.”

    “What’s with the death thing?”

    “I’ve only got 100 years to live.”

    I could go for that.

    The amp, not the death thing.

    I'd like a Brian May version.

    Maybe a BM/BE?

    “The BM” is how people describe my playing, not my amp. :eek:

    They mean to say it’s THE sh!t, not that it’s sh!t. If I could play as well as you do, I’d give up the piano.

    Yup, Joe Morgan makes a terrific amp. They’re very AC30-ish, but not exactly a 1963-4 AC30 clone, like the ones I heard/played back in the day.

    I’m a patient guy. I can wait it out. After all, I’ve been without one for all these years, and lived to tell the tale. :)

    Hahahahaha!

    Wait, I love the UAD Ampeg B-15 bass amp model. I use it on every bass track I cut. Seriously. It’s the only amp model of any kind I regularly find useful on finished projects.

    And I use software models as scratch pads when coming up with ad music ideas.

    There’s just no getting around the fact that they influenced what you do, regardless of genre, even if indirectly.

    That includes creative recording techniques.

    Les, you should buy my Vox. Sounds like just what you want.
