Ok so, i have no experience with valve amps and how their valve amp power (W) compare to digital amps but i do know that a 20W valve amp is the same as a 100W digital (as far as i have been led to believe). I am an metal player that does dabble in a little bit more than metal (crunch and many...
Have you ever... that's open ended... purchased a similar or nearly identical instrument to one you already own (or owned) - because of aesthetics? Different color, different top, etc.,?

I pointed out the huge knot at the scarf joint and said that sometimes dud guitars can be made...

another song is finished (instrumental. I have tried to achieve thicker guitar tone, so, I added a little more bass on guitar amp, looks like it works. Also, used some wub-wub (dubstep busses) on verses.

So I'm contemplating wood choices for my first build. I was thinking swamp ash body with a Birdseye maple neck and fret board. Its going to be a voyager body but a 7 string. Any opinions on how it will sound? The body will be balanced so I know it won't have moar left side toan.

I use currently an epiphone les paul with ampkit on the iphone, and it's great to practice at home or in the studio.
