Thanks, all! I'm already ecstatic with this rig, and it's going to be even better after I get the reverb on the amp fixed (hopefully tomorrow morning). I could probably spend the rest of my life trying to learn to play well enough to do it justice, which makes for great inspiration.
Doug is the
man! Tubes last longer when he's signed the amp.
Killer combination. Congrats.
Doug may be one of the finest human beings I've ever met! I always love meeting somebody who is at the absolute pinnacle of their profession and remains incredibly humble and approachable. I was a bit in awe when I met him, and he put me completely at ease.
I cannot image you needing any other guitar or amp for a long time! Rock that pair in good health and happiness.
I'm sure I'll start GASing after something else eventually, but especially with the Vela, the Hollowbody II, and the Strat already in the house, I really can't imagine what else I could need.
Except maybe something with a piezo. I think I need a piezo.
