    Dude, that combo is a nice one. Trace equipment is built rock solid. They quality is also top notch before the Gibson buyout. It still wasn't bad even after Gibson though. Its just pre-Gibson stuff is more desirable because Trace was in total control and it was all built in England. I can't remember what year they took over but a Google search should turn it up though.

    The only real negative about Trace stuff is there isn't any factory service places for parts. There are a couple of places however that still sell service parts and stuff for them. Here are the two I know of:

    I say buy it and enjoy!
