    Top horn reminds me of a Fly. Cool!

    After reading the description, you need a PRS Harmonic Generator amp to go with it! :)

    The Mesa head & Cab I traded for a Mesa Fillmore 25 1x12 combo. Fillmore was kind of boxy sounding... The Express+ is more to my liking.
    The JVM head came as part of a trade for a USA EVH Signature Wolfgang (the one with the kill switch). Head is in mint shape + $2500, so I think I got the better end of the deal because I paid $2800 for the EVH before they raised the price to $3700...which is ridiculous. They're not worth that kind of dough... Dark sounding guitar too.
    The rest were pure lockdown insanity :)
    Oh, I also sold a Marshall SV20H "Mini Plexi" 20w head... Decent amp... Not very versatile. I replaced it with the Friedman Wildwood 20 head... My normal gigging head is a Friedman Wildwood Smallbox 50 which all my beloved PRS guitars LOVE

    Gorgeous... Man. I'd love one of those amps! Does it have a master volume, or must it be cranked to get to the sweet spot?

    It has a master, and two "channel" gains although it isn't a channel switching amp. It's like a jumpered 59, but you don't have to jumper it. You can adjust between the treble and bass channels to get where you need to be. Take a peek at Paul's video in the linked thread. He covers it really well. It's almost like he has inside information. :rolleyes:

    Me too! This is my only lockdown gear purchase, and as I am back to the office 5 days a week now, I guess that will be all.

    4. Spark 40 amp
    So, yeeeeaaaaahhhh

    oh and then there’s the most recent decision to get a WL MEV. But I’ll be waiting until this time next year for that one

    I wish I was back to the office. 6 months of working from my spare bedroom on a dining room chair and tiny desk. No end in sight for us, our company just doesn't seem interested in getting any of the office staff back. Only thing I've heard is rumors it will be sometime in the new year, but nothing official. The trouble is spending all day at home, in a room where I keep all of my guitars, there's not a lot of work getting done. After 6 months, it doesn't feel like I'm going to work anymore.

    Back to the lockdown purchases, I've bought a whole bunch of pedals. I'm in a Boss mood at the moment and have bought a bunch cheap. Most surprising is how much I like the 40th anniversary model of the humble DS1.

    I was blessed with the delivery of a SS Nebula. I’m thankful to the hard working magicians at the PRS factory for producing another fantastic instrument with the extra burden of covid, and for the folks at Guitar Center who honored the MSRP and got it to my house in factory fresh condition. Additional thanks to the shipping folks who got it here quickly and safely. I salute you all!
