I've had the joy of gigging 4 great pieces of Aguilar gear: the AG 500sc, DB 680, the DB 659 and the Tone Hammer 500. For a variety of reasons I've kept only the TH 500 - one heck of a great amp. I've learned how to get a clean and warm tone from all of them with a fair amount of knob and switching. They are all works of art to me and it's been easy to approach the company whenever I had questions. I'd love to get a AG 700. Thanks again.
