Since no one else is talking (why?) this is going out to my gig with me tonight.
It's been a very long time since I fired up my Carvin Quad-X amp. I used to run it through a stereo Mosvalve 500 into a Boogie 2x12 or 802s believe it or not.
Yesterday I ran a 77 Gibson Artisan into the Quad-X into the T1® to my Model II with 2 x B1s. Awesome. The one shown here is not mine, but mine is pretty much identical right down to the yellowed inlay in the headstock and the gleaming white inlay in the neck.
4 channels - no waiting
5 effects loops
Noise gate on first stage of preamp
Mine (yes of course I have two) are circa 1992. Discontinued around 1994. Some folks are still wondering why.
I ran this into T1® Channel 4 using the Preset
Category: Electric Guitars
Preset: Gibson Les Paul
I was very pleased.
The Artisan also known as the Hearts and Flowers Les Paul is heavy, 12 pounds at least. Only to be worn with a neoprene strap for sure. We get Guitars for all kinds of reasons. I have no *good* reason for having this one but there is a lot of sentimental significance to it. So it's here to stay.
