    What an awesome little amp though. Well worth the Mexi strat I traded for it.

    Hmmmmm....
    These recent praises of the LBX amps are certainly making me curious as far as checking them out.

    I had a Mark I for a while and traded it for the LBX II. The MAJOR advantage is the concentric volume and gain controls, but other than that, it has a terrific clean channel and the Blue channel is perfection. The Blue channel is not like the Blue channel on the Mark I. It is more like a cross between the Blue and the Red channels. I like it much better. I tried to use the Red channel on the Mark I, but ultimately found that I preferred the Blue channel and never used the Red.

    Because the clean channel on the LBX II is so good, it allowed me to run a 5150 Overdrive in front of the amp. I set up the pedal to run with single coils, and the Blue channel on the amp to run my Humbucker guitars.

    I hear you. As this was a trade, I had to go for it. I would still prob use my Carvin V3m in a live situation, but the 5150 Mach 1, is sill gigable. I set the gain at 25%. Then I can roll off the volume on blue and get fairly clean, roll up for thick OD, and go red for leads. I guess that was the thought process. IDK. I'm a metal head. Like Pantera/Anthrax type shit. And anything over 25% gain on red seems ridiculous. I don't even know how its tweaked with that much gain.

    I can't imagine a market for neon pink or green 80's guitars, with tiger stripes.
    Or playing through a pedal called the Pussy melter.

    I know they have fans, but gear ain't cheap.
    Why would you buy something like that?

    I just got a call from Sweetwater and the 5150 Deluxe's are shipping now. I had to cancel my preorder for personal reasons, unfortunately, so I won't be getting one as planned.
