    Congratulations and welcome. The hard tail Pro Jets sound great stock. They are also easy to upgrade.

    Oh yeah, it]s gotta be surf green. And an nice upgrade is a Compton bridge, a relatively inexpensive way to really make it sparkle!! A couple of photo's, one without the Compton (first), one with. Congrats on your great choice, I am sure you are going to love it!!! I certainly love mine!!

    I know what you mean about the weight of unpaid bills and the thick neck they give you!!!!
    Well done and I'm sure you'll have a ball with your new Jet when she arrives.

    Very nice, no printed circuit boards in site. I'll bet it sounds amazing turned up and hot with no pedals!

    Thanks ! Well, unfortunately, the sound samples that I recorded are not that good. One day I'll manage all right with some of my pro friends guitarists to record something giving really justice to the amp's tone...

    And don't forget to post the pictures of your G5435 SRF GRN, in order to compare to the color to my G5622TLH SRF GRN !

    A+!

    No worries, everyone hopefully everyone here has had an occasion to hear a great guitar plugged straight into a wide open, low-watt tuber with that magic piano, chimey, impossible to pinpoint overtone ring and growl that just makes you smile!

    (I'll snap some pics next week when I receive the axe)
