I think Randall Smith had limited involvement with this particular manual, since it's pretty concise by Mesa standards and doesn't include several extensive segues in which the inner workings of amps are explained to you using the Pony Express as a metaphor.
Large parts of it also actually made sense. It's actually pretty good for a Mesa manual and has some good advice, I'm assuming the regular manual guys brought in some new talent for this particular manual as its somewhat light on "Adjust the knobs using your soul and third eye" style nonsense.
I would love to hear a Mesa manual actually endeavor to explain how USB functionality works.
I did learn that at the Mesa factory they routinely preface statements with, "IN THE NAME OF GREAT AND BALANCED TONE".
"IN THE NAME OF GREAT AND BALANCED TONE, THERE IS TONAL THIEVERY AFOOT IN MY FX LOOP."
