    Maybe someone here can help me out with some confusion.

    As I understand it, Gibson bought out Trace Elliot in October 1998.

    I've heard talk of there being a difference in quality of Gibson era Trace Elliots compared with pre-Gibson Traces.

    Is this a real thing? How can you tell the difference between pre- and post-Gibson Traces?
  2. My V4 is a post gibson one, probably one of the last amps ever made by Trace. Very few problems, fuses occasionally but its a newish design, ive become aware of problems and inherant design faults from gavin at GM Audio anyway. I wouldnt swap it anyway!
