  3. Jon Pearson liked Noodler's post in the thread Question About Sterling JP157.

    I'll second this. I have a MAJ170 and for what it cost me, I'm really not thrilled. I've had $400 guitars that played the same/better...

  4. Jon Pearson liked MaxOfMetal's post in the thread The best tube power amps for the money?.

    I getcha. They're built good. But most amps built past the 90's are. In some ways they are pretty idiot proof which means they stand...

    I guess I was more posting that as a response to the often celebrated "build quality" that people talk about. Don't get me wrong, I...

    From what I understand they are pretty damn similar, there are some differences but I can't remember at this poin

  10. Jon Pearson liked KnightBrolaire's post in the thread Most misunderstood/poorly marketed gear.

    Honestly, a lot of people are just fucking idiots (myself included sometimes) or lazy when it comes to dialing in an amp. I laugh when...

  15. Jon Pearson liked Choop's post in the thread Most misunderstood/poorly marketed gear.
