Here's the synopsis: A friend of one of the guiarists in my band purchased a brand new ag500-112c @ approx. $1700 for her friend. In a roundabout way, the amp was not given to the intended recipient and now my guitarist is basically in a position to acquire the amp. Before I even continue, ANY party at ANY time SELLING the amp is out of the question. On a good, or bad note, he doesn't plan on selling it, or even playing bass through it. This guy plans on getting it and "experimenting with guitar" on it. I've warned him repeatedly that not only is this a morally bad decision on his part, but using an Aguilar amp to "play around with guitar" is just an outright bad idea. Please someone give me feedback on why he can't do this. I mean honestly the decision would be made without my choice, I just need good reason to basically make him feel bad for having this idea. This Aguilar set up is something I'M not even ready for as a bass player (with an SWR rig) and I couldn't justify seeing my guitarist who insists on overdriving his Orange AD30 and 4x12s ALL the time, run his strat through a 500 watt Aguilar amp. I'm not saying I want it instead because I know I couldn't use it how it was originally intended for our music. Sorry I need to stop typing because at the moment of typing this, things escalated into a full blown arguement and now I must tend to that. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
