    I do. The G-system is a tricky unit to make sound good. I tried the 4 cable method (guitar-->g-system; g-system insert loop-->5150 input; 5150 effects send-->g-system insert return; g-system left (mono) output-->5150 effects return. This is the most flexible setup it puts the wah/filters/loops before the 5150 preamp and the delays/chrous/verb after the preamp, but it really suffered from tone suck

    I settled for putting the entire g-system in the 5150s effects loop and only using delays/verbs, etc... I run my pedals (mxr flange/phase) out in front of the amp by themselves. This gives me the best tone, but not the most flexibility. If you are going to go down this path, read the G-system whitepaper (http://www.guitaraffair.com/pdfs/g-s...ting-guide.pdf). It will make your head spin.
