    I feel bad because I had turned a guy onto Acoustic and he thought they were all created equal so he bought a G60 on name alone. It sounded great every time he played it ( when it was actually working...) for about the first hour - then it would start to degrade. I think he took it to the tech (one of the most well respected guys in Los Angeles FWIW) probably 3-4 times in the first year and it just never seemed to behave.

    Most tubes amps will put their owners through some kind of 'test' at first just to show them whos the boss - and then things generally settle down into a nice mutual display of codependent compromise... not so with these amps.

    Maybe think of it just like owning a nice old vintage AC30 but without the lineage... or the tone... or the looks... or the reliability (cough cough)....
