    I was reading some of the "What Amp should I buy" or "What distortion pedal" topics and had a thought. How important is tone to some people and will you pay extra to get it? What I have seen is people will spend a lot on a guitar then run it through a crappy amp THEN buy another expensive...

    ...but I played my first JCM800 last weekend. *waits for laughter to die down* Yeah, somehow I'd managed to make it something like 10+ years without actually playing a JCM800 head. I forget exactly which model it was, but I'm guessing it was the reissue. Single channel, presence...
