    Interesting. I've never seen one in a store/used with one, but ya never know.. Also, it doesn't say anything of a board, just a picture..

    Hmm, someone will know.

    You can't go wrong with Trace Elliot quality, tone and versatility in my book. I say go for it. I love mine. The 12 band preamp is amazing. So is the built in dual band compressor. I'm guessing the foot switch controls: 2 pre-shape settings, EQ in/out, mute, compression, and effects loop.

    I don't have too much experience w/ the post Gibson Trace stuff. I've heard mixed reviews. But, I used to play through the same head at our practice spot and it was great. If the price is right- go for it, you'll be happy you did.

    That is still the Gibson era trace stuff, just to confuse Gibson have kept their trace site running, the new trace can be found here: http://www.trace-elliot.co.uk/

    The new stuff looks awesome, quite possibly worth waiting for. Anyway, can't go wrong with Trace, all great amps.
