I hear ya, Fridge. I have what I want too, for the most part. Love my Boogie. Love my Les Paul. Love my Yamaha AES 420. Very much love the 30 year-old Washburn dreadnaught I've had for most of my adult life. Love my Strat most of all. The only two things that tempt me now are a PRS P22 with the piezo, and perhaps a Gibson doubleneck. I need a doubleneck like I need a hole in the head, but who ever said GAS had to make any sense at all?
What Mesa Boogie do you have? I have a 2006 Lone Star Classic and a 2013 Mark V.
Little Mark V 25, pushing two Boogie Thiele 1x12 cabinets (one open backed, one closed backed). Most of the time I run it at 10 watts and it's still massively loud for such a little head.
What I like about the V 25 is the clean channel. It sparkles like nothing else ... add a tiny bit of reverb for color and it's just ... luscious.
The dirty channel is nice, but running it in clean (Ch. 1) with crunch on, gain, treble and mids cranked up gives it a meaty, Marshall plexi-like sound that's even nicer. Check it out - here it is with the Strat (2014 American Deluxe, with fender Noiseless 3 single coils ... same guitar in my avatar pic) ... I know I muffed up the solo but you get the point. This is on the clean channel, with the crunch on and gain/treb/mids all around 8. Just hacking around in the basement, playing along with the album, recorded on my phone. https://soundcloud.c...imelight-almost
Seriously, it's the nicest amp I've ever owned. I couldn't be more impressed with it.
