    I never really got that argument, since our phones are Chinese made we shouldn’t be allowed to prefer US made (or other first-World countries) for other stuff where we actually have a choice, or somehow it makes us hypocritical.

    As far as I know there are no first-World-made smartphones. The only alternative is to not have one.

    But for guitars and amps, and many other things in life we have a choice and assuming it’s not prohibitively expensive, I’ll take the first-world-made product.

    I think it's hilarious that the king of modeling, bulb himself, designed an amp in the first place.

    I think my joke was slightly misinterpreted. I understand that not all Chinese made products are total garbage, but I AM in agreeance that I prefer certain things to be made certain places because of the quality.

    Guitars and amps are one such example.

    Tiny example:

    I have a Japanese made ESP Horizon III. The fit, finish and playability is well worthy of the 1600 pricetag.

    The other day I played one of the brand new LTD deluxe horizon III’s that came out for 2018, I believe it was Korean built.
    While it was certainly a nice playing guitar And well made, there were definitely little things about it that you could tell and feel it wasn’t the full tilt Japanese made model.

    To me, those little things are worth the extra expense after having played guitar for 25 years.

    I think the only issue with the price is that peavey no longer has the clout to demand those prices although feature wise it is fair.

    Mesa booogie stuff is expensive but every detail is immaculate, and look under the hood of one. Youre paying for design and development.

    Mesas just feel special to me.

    So when Peavey is in that price range for an amp that you can barely even get your hands on it leaves a sour taste.

    Or a Kia K900!

    Why the fluck would somebody shell out more than 50 grand for a Kia and not a Lexus, Acura, Audi, etc?

    Peavey has a line of mini head amps based on their big brothers. So it would only be natural to make one for the invective. We’ll see. .D
