some really cool dudes at that store..but this one kid just rubbed me the wrong way right off the bat. I have been going there since the mid 90's, the guitar I picked up DIDNT have sign on it saying DONT TOUCH! it was a relic'd NASH, i was gonna fucking buy it too...but he popped off and I just put it back and let my friend play the amp. I was just disgusted at the kid at that point and just listened and didn't say another word.
Amp was MEH, I didn't get a chance, NO ONE got a chance to either turn it up properly, fuck with it properly..we were just on a tour guide experience with and over hyped sales kid. not a good experience.
We don't need a fucking walk thru, we will ask you questions when we have them. Let us play the amp, turn the knobs, find tones, OURSELVES...
Instead I scored a vintage Marshall from Guitar Center so FTW!!

Reza you need to speak up! I would have been rude back and told the kid to get lost. I never used to be like that but the last couple years I don't seem to have a filter any more. You should try it. If I wanted to buy that guitar I would have made it well known to that kid what my plans are and that he's not part of it.Rezamatix":3bne3hw2 said:not a great experience. but whatever. (some douchey young salesKID in there is a know it all but doesnt know 1 important thing, when to shut up and let the men test the amps)
my best friend who is an excellent guitarist took the amp for a test drive, it was kinda MEH at best.
At no single point as I was observing and listening did I say, WOW AAAAMAAAZING, this is a fucking killer amp.
Nope. instead had to listen to the wasted sperm of a saleskid prattle on about shit we already knew, and even stopped us from testing the amp with a guitar of our choice (single coil strat).
Thats what my friend wanted, instead he went and got the shop "test guitar" and forced the demo with that, all the while standing over us adjusting knobs like we can't do that. Bad Experience with the staff today (there is like 2 cool dudes at that place, the rest I don't know about)
Long story short, the amp seemed VERY vanilla. It didn't sound BAD in anyway, but it wasn't Exceptional IN ANY WAY either. I was just bored immediately with it. Non inspiring, and nothing interesting about it at all.
(also, I would have spent $2K on a new Nash guitar if that salesdouche didn't mouth off to me first thing)

true... the clips don't give you any usable idea on how the amp sounds and feels... You have to try it yourself.
Even with "better" demo videos, were the sound is supposedly not changed/ post-produced, I still find it hard to "replicate" that sound.
So bottom line, you have to play the amp for yourself, to really get a feel
