I don't think doing this is a real amp would change a lot, if it would engineers would do that to sell more amps
We weren't being serious.

If you go overboard with gain all you end up with is a buzzy, micro-phonic mess that won't stop feeding back, no matter how well potted your pickups are.

I won't even get into having the amp feedback on itself...

Yep. Literally infinite gain. You can even adjust your input volume and send that straight into a limiter, to imitate the hottest possible pickup - One that never does anything apart from silence or 100% saturation of the input.

It does demonstrate that some of you guys STILL aren't using enough gain!!!!

Re: Is there a difference in sound/feel/etc. between the different wood types?

Scientifically, tone is not sound itself, but particular properties of a sound, including intonation, beat and modulation of that sound.

A sound itself is: The product of air vibrations set up by a vibrating medium (such as wood or metal), transmitted to the ear and interpreted by the brain.

But for the sake of this discussion, the two are semi-interchangeable.
