Strange offer??!!!

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by StoutXXX, Feb 5, 2004.


  1. I got an offer to trade my 90's DC-5 mesa all tube guitar head(which rules) for a Johnson250 millenium digital guitar head with more options than could drool at for hours flat out.... do i do it? I love the simplicity and sound of the mesa but is it worth it in the long run for a non gigging guitarist to swap?

    No, the johnson will be worth nothing in a few short years and the mesa will still have value. Plus Johnson's sound like turds.

    What Tim said.

    Doesn't matter how many options there are if all the options are crap.
     
  5. HAHA OK OK I feel bad for even thinking it. I love tubes for guitarr and I guess I will NOT trade.

    I have a few different modeler thingies, and they're actually kinda fun. One of them works much better for bass than guitar, surprisingly. They all work a lot better if you run 'em through a few tube stages, which is a big clue. If you're really intrigued, trade with the guy for a week. That should be long enough for you to see the error of your ways. :cool:
