Dont! I repeat, dont Forget the smaltz!! You want to remain Kosher with these amps, or the output will drop off like a married woman.

On the satellite reverb. What satellite are you using? Mine hasn't worked since Sky Lab fell in the 80's

You've got to out of your mind if you're not putting down the extra clams to go right to Telstar 2. The first real-time active satellite up there. 1963. Some guys are sticklers for a passive sat, but I like the extra heat.

Did I just hijack my own thread?

That's definitely a great idea; I'll mock it up post-haste. Now I have something to occupy me for the next few hours.

haha. Is that the triangle one (or, the friday-job flying v) with the Russia/USA flag graphics and the yellow "GP" in the middle of the body?

What about putting the LS9... 6.2 litre supercharged? With 625+ HP you'd shred the frets right off that maple board. Gonna need some sticky-icky picks to get any decent grip on the strings, though. You do a pulley change you may be able to get her up to 215 bpm. hahaha

Any thoughts?
Yuck, not my cup of tea.

I like this, definitely stands out from the crowd. In real life it might look less arresting, depending on the blue used, and it doesn't necessarily need to be a flat blue, you can use shading etc.

Maybe have red and blue pick-ups to match the overall colour scheme?
