after waiting 3 frikin months, my ashdown electric blue just came in the door not even an hour ago! HAPPY DAY!!! this may not be a big deal to any of you mesa400+ billion dollar amp owners, but this is my first step-up from my squier beginner pack in 2 years. these pictures dont do this thing justice, but thats how it is with pretty much anything mine even has the real VU meter!! sorry about the blurry shots, im not very good with my camera thanks to joe for showing me american musical supply, i would have had to wait til march! and thanks talkbass for helping me find out about this great amp.
