    I really feel a bit tempted hahaha...

    but as said, I need a few more weeks (months?) to really try everything out. When I ordreed it (10 months ago. :-/ ), I had shitloads of time, a big pile of recording-work - it would have reached me at a much better time back then..since I have it, I had hardly really time to spend with the unit...but even the moments when I had time, I had no "desire" to fiddle around with it, no shit, I just plugged straight into the POD instead..:eek:

    (how much people must hate me right now....:lol:)

    sadly the AFX 2 won't be going used for a decent price for some time, and decent meaning for the average $2200 price.

    if and when i got the dough and one does go on sale for $2200, i will jump all over it

    Just placed my order. The wait is killing me. Sad part is I won't be able to play it until I get a power amp. Any suggestions for cheap tube power amps?

    OR

    Should I sell my cab and go FRFR?
    If so, recommendations?

    Anyone wanna tell me how long it took for them to receive their AxeFX II upon ordering it? I'm moving out in a few weeks and want to make sure I can order it now and have it arrive before I leave.

    BTW: Firmware 4.00 is up

    Axe-Fx II Firmware Version 4.00 Up - Page 6

    "Added “FAS 6160” model. This model is based on the PVH 6160 model but more open and less fizzy than the original amp. Also, a virtual choke has replaced the resistor found on the original’s power supply filter. This results in a bouncier feel."

    I will definitely try this one out tonight.

    There's really no way to guarantee it although the waitlist is moving very quick and coming to the end.

    ^I've only been waiting three months thus far, still trying to be optimistic.

    If I have my 2 by v6.0, I'll be happy.
