  1. Hey all. I was planning on getting a Vox AD30VT around the holidays, but then found this on Musician's Friend: http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product?sku=483552 Is this the new model of the AD30VT? If so I'm gonna grab it instead. It seems to have all the features of the AD30VT, plus a little more, I am definitely interested. Thanks.
  2. As for age, the serial number can tell you that. The serial number tells the following: I05091240 I = The factory it was made in (Different letters for different factories.) 05 = The year it was made 09 = The month it was made 1240 = The production number for that month.
  3. I could just be reading it wrong, but I think he meant when he plays a G chord, not the G string.
  4. Wow, nice response Raf. Unfortunately I wasn't talking about a tube amp, but rather the 100w solid state, the Frontman 212r. I think I have decided to go ahead and go with something smaller, but here is the link anyways. http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product?sku=481601X
  5. That's not the route I'm intending to take, and the only reason I was considering it was because the amp was about 60% off since it was scratch and dent.
  6. So do you guys think there is such a thing as "too much" amp? Musicians Friend has a good deal on a Scratch and Dent Fender 100w, and the price is great, but I don't need 100w right now. Hopefully someday I will need that kind of volume, but for now would I be able to use it around the house decently? I wouldn't be asking, but it is the same price as a 50w amp, so I would feel kind of stupid buying the 50w if I could use this.
  7. Yeah, that's what it seems to be. I was thinking there were actual differences in the body, not just the paint.
  8. How about this guy? http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Fender-25R-Frontman-Series-II-Guitar-Combo?sku=480669
  9. Thanks for all the input everyone. I know you get what you pay for, but this is my first amp, and will just be used to learn on, so I'm not looking to drop several hundred dollars. It will almost always be kept at low levels or have headphones plugged in, so nothing amazing is needed. What suggestions would you have for an amp for that purpose around the $150 pricepoint? And for the record, I am willing to get a smaller, more dependable amp, it doesn't need to be larger. Thanks a lot.
  10. How about these two Gibson's? Is $90 a good deal? http://asheville.craigslist.org/msg/863873863.html
  11. I don't know if talking about non-Epiphone amps in here is a no no, but I had a question, and have found this forum a great resource. I found this amp (link below) on MF, and am very interested in it, just for the price mainly. My question is that if it is a waste of $150, or worth it for the price? I won't be gigging with it or anything, just using it as a practice amp. I read the reviews on the site and they sounded great, but I had never heard anything about Crate amps before, so I ust wanted to get some input before I dropped the cash. Thanks a lot. Link to amp
  12. I am into some psych/funk/experimental like Prince, of Montreal, things of that sort, and a lot of good ole fashion pop music ala Elephant 6 if anyone knows what that is. Beach Boys, Kinks, and Pixies influenced stuff.
