    One of these days I'm going to own a Marshall amp, if for no other reason than just because.
    RIP Hub

    I have a JCM2000-DSL 60 watt. Beautiful sounding amp. I need to dust it off. Been playing my acoustics almost exclusively for the last year or so.

    Marshall amps the best around IMO.
    Why did Tennessee choose orange as their team color? You can wear it to the game on Saturday, hunting on Sunday, and picking up trash along the highways the rest of the week.

    The avatar is my former assistant who I think of as my adopted daugther. She is smart, funny, likeable and a Acct & Finance grad of Fullerton and given the right guidance would light the world on fire. Just don't tell her I said that.
