    new amps is next on our list too
    love my Mustang, but i saw recently that Fender has a newer more advanced setup that you can use your phone for settings.

    i may get myself one of those and pass my Mustang down to one son and pick up a new one for the other.

    then all 3 of us complete non-players can really make some racket

    Part of the reason I bpught my Mustang was things you said in this thread. I love it. At first I couldn't ever get quite the sound I wanted with the amp's presets but when I downloaded a few user made ones it's a lot closer.

    oh i absolutely LOVE that thing.
    Lil Nootch seems to have confiscated it from me though.
    and Short Kid’s el-cheapo 10 Watt Ibanez only works when it wants to.

    i’ll hoping the newer ones (forget what exactly they called) are an upgrade from the Mustang, i may have to go that route.

    Y'all crack me up a little bit. I hang out with a lot of professional guitar players. Most of them are using the same amps that they have been using for 25+ years. About the only new stuff I have seen them get is new PA's for vocals. Y'all seem to have amp ADD lol.

    well in my defense, i do not have fewer fully functioning amps (1) than i do people using them (3) right now, so i kinda need a couple.

    Those guys were probably professionals 25 years ago. They found the amps that made the sounds they wanted to make years ago. It is natural to want to upgrade your equipment as you get better. I started with a $60 10 watt Fender Frontman. It was OK for a beginner but as I got better I was increasingly more frustrated at not being able to get the kinds of tones I wanted. And a lot depends on what you want to play. If you mainly play acoustic you can be satisfied with an amp that accurately reproduces the sound of the guitar.

    Jimmy Page is somewhat of an audio equipment designer. A lot of those great Zeppelin sounds you hear are because of what he was able to design, build and implement. Not saying that any of us will ever be as good as Jimmy, Jimi, Eric, Duane or SRV but most of us would love to get as close as possible within the limits of our ability. And the limits of our musical equipment budgets.
