I had to order this since Sam Ash didn't have it in stock. Was pretty sure I would have buyers remorse at this price level. However, I have had the head for around a week and it gives me everything I ask for. From Smooth to digging into the string it will give you what you want. Clean, to slight break up to heavy distortion it's all there and it is very musical. No buyers remorse from a sound stand point. However, the build quality on mine is atrocious! The tolex in the corners look like they were burned while installing. Very dull and melted looking compared to the rest of the tolex. I've had 79 dollar amps with better looking tolex. Also My headshell has a 3/16 gap on the left and the head sits tight on the right side of the headshell. I expected much, much better at this price level. I not only want to listen and smile but I would like to look at it and get a big smile on face also.
