    Between your forum name and your guitar choices, I think we could become friends. If not, at least put me in your will for one of those beauties!

    Our drummer from 2001-2005 also played in a Dream Theater tribute - we used to do Rush-DT tribute double bills. It was a lot of fun!

    They look so deliciously vintage I could almost sense the tone!

    It's like we are brothers, somehow separated at birth!

    2008 Korina McCarty with PTC installed 5708s (original unengraved covers). This guitar like my other 2 PRS has stainless frets (Jescar 57110) and a bone nut. A Mann 2300 adjustable bridge and Schroeder locking bridge studs were added recently. I have always liked the tone of this one even with it’s original McCarty pickups. 7 pounds even.

    I have one of these too and can attest to how alive and resonant they are!

    It's a Bluesmaster 50. Defeat switch? Not that I know of. It has a footswitch...

    On the HRM amps there's an option to add a "defeat switch" that deactivates the second EQ stack essentially making it a regular overdrive special.

    I was just curious to see if you had it and how well it actually worked.

    Ah yes. Back 15 years ago when I built this thing I was all over the forums and stuff about this, and would have known exactly what you meant. It's similar to what you describe, but not quite. This one does a "turn off the front panel tone stack" thing when you engage the boost switch, so when you switch to the drive channel, you can also hit the boost switch to bypass the front panel tone settings, or not, depending on what you want. The way I have my tone knobs usually there's not much difference if I do or don't, I tweaked the inside controls to be fairly similar to my preferred outside tone settings.

    Anyway, it's a gorgeous sounding amp, and I'm missing it currently - I'm (hopefully temporarily) living in an apartment, and it's in a storage unit currently, although I might have to rectify that.

    I have the 20watt one and it has the preamp boost the same as yours. I'm also in an apartment and am really limited even with the little one. And I have the FX loop buffer too which drops the volume but not enough at times.

    Further to my original post (if we're letting other brands play) I have to post these beauties.

    Epiphone Les Paul Special - This thing is freakin awesome. Only thing I needed to do was lower the action and de-gloss it with a scotchbrite pad.

    Thanks! I got lucky getting that one. Plays like a big stick of buttah.
