    EDIT: Nevermind didn't work, I'm looking forward to it but I just got a pod 500 for effects so I don't think I'll be getting it.

    If it is a combo, it is probably some sort of reinvention of the Flextone.

    I swear to god, if they announce a new modeling line two months after I bought a POD HD, I will firebomb their office building.

    I doubt it's a new modeling line, but if so, i'll turn a blind eye to the firebombs.

    I couldn't see the video, but from the faint pictures I've seen in the teasers, maybe something like the Yamaha THR?

    ...Which would be weird, considering that's competing with yourself. :lol:

    Competing with yourself is not always negative though. It builds a strong consumer base on each side and causes the whole which is better fight and draws more interest into the products.

    The video really made it look like a new combo amp. Front grating (like on behringer bass amps), the way the knobs are setup, and other things.

    Unless Yamaha thinks they would sell more of the same type of amp if it has the Line 6 name on it.

    Hope nobody in Algeria actually has the email address poopfarts@gmail.com, because they're about to get a lot of Line 6 spam.

    A Line 6 rep said on TGP that 2014 will all be new gear that was all started/designed long before talks with Yamaha.

    Okay, I thought it was a knee jerk reaction by line 6.

    Anyway since Im not at work now I'd like to elaberate on a Vetta 3.

    I'm sure Line 6 know the term Vetta is strong to this day, having seen people recommend the V2 over any of the HDs lineup I think just using the term would sell people on the idea, all they'd really need to do is add a few more amp models more dsp and have a line out to record and they'd have a real winner.

    A vetta 3 would be so awesome line6 never really repeated the success of that line. A range of speakers aimed at the modelling community wouldn't go amiss either.

    Hopefully they can get a few decent endorsers to restore some credibility
