To celebrate Doc's birthday, I purchased an EMS today from Guitar Riot in Cleveland. I chose to support a smaller boutique shop and some great guys. I have wanted this amp for a while. Happy early Christmas present to me! More to follow!

Not quite a full report but a report nonetheless. I really love this amp. I gigged last Saturday night and the EMS sounded stellar. I used the JMP 50 tone style for 95% of the gig, and the JCM 800 tone for the last Van Halen and AC/DC tunes. The amp responded incredibly to all pickups - singlecoil, p-90's and humbuckers. I used a Marvel Drive V3 pedal to hit the front end harder for more rockin' solos.
I am so pleased with this tone machine. Maybe some sound clips can happen in the near future. I am pretty short on free time these days.
There is a reason you don't see any used EMS heads out there...You won't wanna ever sell it if you get one.
GuitarZ: Ugh! Dropped small nut while installing new outside lamp. Thought I saw where it landed. Couldn't find it. Moved the car & such. Engineering mind said, drop another (after ~hour). Bang! Within 5 seconds. Nut found! Yea! Wife Impressed!

GuitarZ: Bells & Whistles-New Cars. A year with our Subaru Outback, finally realized doors have to be unlocked for inside rear hatch button to work. Dang! I need that feature for social distancing. Looked like an idiot pulling up & jumping out to manually open.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
