    I went the other direction. I started with electrics & stumbled down the 8 string rabbit hole just in time for the pandemic. Like most of my hobbies (obsessions) it started small. The KM-150 was my gateway mandolin & now I have a couple mandolas, a bouzouki, an OM and a couple mandolins with another arriving on Sun And then there are the electrics...to be fair, there was more running than stumbling down the rabbit hole

Told him I was looking for a tube amp I could play at home and church, no stadiums or big clubs given my talent level and day job, and that I wanted the Deluxe but thought it might be too loud, so I was interested in a Jr unless he had other ideas. I almost laughed when he set the master volume at 2, until I hit the first chord, and, man that thing is loud! I’ve gone as high as 4 when home alone (for a song or two), but 3 rattles the windows, lol, and any more than that for long and I’d need ear protection. My Red Dirt OD pedal works nicely with it as well.

    My problem is my broad musical interests. If I just loved metal or blues or funk or punk or country or whatever, it would be a little easier to build a rig, but I’m all over the map, so I’m just keeping it simple and accepting some compromises. But, a semi-hollow PRS may be in my future...

    And, yes, I’m very glad I have my Weber OM...
    Hi Chuck, It is hard to beat the Deluxe Twin amp with 22 potent watts! I have played one and it was amazing! I listed those I could barely move and afford. I guess I would say my realistic dream amp is a ‘65 Princeton, which can be had for around $800 used, I believe. I admire those PRS semi hollow guitars and that does give one flexibility in style and application. So glad about your Weber OM. Weber will be back, but it was hard to read that such a leader in domestic mandolin production was taking a year long hiatus.

    Yeah, the Princetonís are awesome! I almost got the Deluxe Reverb and one of the gadgets that cuts volume without killing the tone (totally blanking on the name, but demos online were impressive, but they were another 400-500 dollars. Iím very happy with the Jr so far, though.

    The PRS Iíve been looking at gives enough sonic capabilities that I think it would keep me from getting three or 4 more guitars for specific purposes, lol

    I stumbled into a opportunity buy on a Gretsch Chet Atkins. Put 11s on it and I just love the sound. Also my wife lets me play while we watch TV.

    That's a great looking goldtop Caleb! I also like what Epi did with the headstock on the new design.

    My Mandolin got eaten by a Strat. Then the Strat got eaten by a Harp Guitar.
