    Is that your professional opinion?

    And by professional I mean pro grade asswhipe. :naughty:

    Me? I'm a pro, world class douche. But I happen to also be a professional musician, recording engineer, studio and store owner.

    As such I've played through lots of guitars and amps and I can assure you you wouldn't notice the difference in sound of a nitro finished guitar from an otherwise finished guitar, let alone a chambered one vs a solid block. I also can tell you line6 stuff lasts longer (I don't carry them anymore in the store but I have never gotten any complaints from guys who bought them).

    I also happen to own a Gibson robot and 2 other chambered gibsons, 1 Swiss cheesed and a solid body. Im sure you couldn't tell the difference between their sound (aside from the different pickups they have).

    I wonder if you would be able to tell the difference from my fat strat or any of my teles and a Gibson with a solid body and nitro on a recording. Maybe you'll even be able to tell me which one of my amps I used for it, what settings and what software, computer and interface. :rolleyes:

    BTW the asswhipe part was a joke, and Marshall mgs do suck and sound horribly but most people on a budget buy them and like them. I know a guy who doesn't like chocolate. It's a crazy world. :thumb:

    what do you recommend if you just want a practice amp ? I think Marshal MG 10 is the best bet for the price and well... just likes the looks / name brand... too bad it suck.

    "HNGD" means "Hanged" if you ask a "stupid" and/or question which has been asked before (of course, how could you know this in advance? – this is the beauty of the system) :naughty: :laugh2:

    Good thread. :)

    I knew a girl who didn't...even crazier. :shock:

    Saw this asked, but not answered;

    YMMV = Your Milage May Vary. Meaning you may experience different results with the same product.

    Saw Top Hats, but didn't see;

    Witch Hats = Another common type of volume/tone knobs.
