After much time spent reading, studying and GASing I think I've narrowed my list down to these two. I can't find anything bad about either one. I plan on getting out and trying to find these locally in a store so I can actually play through one. To be honest I think the Ashdown will take me further. I am a little concerned about the 300W of the Walkabout. I am not gigging right now but want to get into something that won't hinder me down the road. I know, GAS will probably rear it's ugly head again in the meantime but still. Thoughts? Can anyone comment on the difference in the two Scouts? 12" vs. 15" Most posts I've read tout the 12" as very good but I don't see a lot on the 15". ???
