    I do! I do! :D
    I love it. It ain't gonna' cut it in most performance situations,
    but that's just fine with me (I don't gig a heckuva lot :p ).

    Despite Mr. Know-it-all at Larry Morgan's in Garland TX tellin' me
    I couldn't run a Rob Allen (i.e., piezo) through it, I'm lovin' the
    many tones I get with #115 and #272 (doubleneck R/A).

    Plus, my Casady and various DiMarzio-equipped Yamahas don't
    sound too shabby neither :).

    Word is, Ampeg brought in the original B15 designer (Jess Oliver)
    to do the "R". IMO, he did a good job. Heavy sum'gun tho...about
    117 pounds. Comes with a dolly!
