In recent months I've been giving my '68 Vibro Champ all the "love"..and why not? Well today I plugged into my '08 Carmen Ghia and reconnected. That Celestion blue sounds as good as ever. Even my dogs came in and slept at my feet when I played softly and sang. Seriously, the Ghia was made for Gibsons.
No ignoring here. Actually, my Ghia gets most of the love being the first amp turned on most days. Don't know why. As for my cat, unlike your dogs, she runs like h*ll as soon as I start making any noise.
I do have to work the Ghia with my LP P90s. I have a hard time finding the sweet spot in terms of volume although this weekend, I may tuned it in.
Gotta give that Ghia Love!

My Ghia never gets ignored because it’s my compare to amp in the music room. When I buy a new or used amp I compare it to my CG because the Ghia has such a natural clean sound. This allows me to really hear the voicing of whatever new amp I am comparing it to. Same with the guitars or new pickups.
Unfortunately, it’s my Therapy I’ve been neglecting, only because I’ve been putting off buying new tubes.

I feel like I've been ignoring mine bc haven't played through it in a few weeks. I put it in the 1/10 combo cab and it's seen a lot of gig work in that format. Kinda feel like I'm running around on it w my Z-28.
The Bad Poodle: I bought airline tickets online... now every few days i get emails that read "Your trip is almost here but aren't you forgetting something?? You don't have trip insurance!" and i'm thinking..."is there something i should know about your plane maintenance?"

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!

capofirstfret: I've experienced tube rattle in two different amps that I've had. In both cases I bought the rubber rings from Eurotubes and it fixed it for me.

GuitarZ: Idiot! I wanted to put a little air on my Zoom H1's circuit board to clear out any residual Deoxit from spraying the input connector. Guess which can I picked up to spray. Yup! Not the air can.
