Love that black heart bro
Thanks, the Blackheart Handsome Devil was definitely an underrated amp for what it is. To bad Blackheart stopped making amps, the pricing was awesome for what you get. This amp has a nice smooth creamy boutique tone to build on for anything you need in a low wattage home/small gig playing situation.

As a stoner teen, about 40 years ago, I was the custodian of a black Gibson Chet Atkins CE nylon solid body electric. Totally in awe of that guitar's beauty and tone. I'd pick it up, play open chords, and then hang my head in shame concerning my lack of teen ability.

Present day, I have my med mj card and the best acoustic sounding guitar (IMO) comes from one that I own. A Larrivee a 000-50. 12 frets to heaven.

For me, they are one in the same, my '19 Wildwood Les Paul Standard '50s.

I think the top and color are incredible, and it plays and sounds even better than it looks.

Beautiful guitar. I've got a 2019 WW Standard 50s as well. Yours and mine look like they could be from the same tree.

Here's mine:

My most beautiful guitar is probably also my best playing. All my guitars feel/sound different, but are set up the same way. My favorite tends to be the one I'm playing in the moment.

The most beautiful and the best were the same guitar; a 1994 fireglo Rickenbacker 330. At the time it was the single most perfect guitar I had ever laid eyes or hands on - it was alomost as if the Good Lord Himself had put the instrument on earth, just for me. Unfortunately, back then I was so ignorant about humidity (or lack thereof) that I left it out in a very, VERY dry room for far too long (along with 3 other Rics) and they all got ruined.
