    So: "No, I don't neccesarily want to buy a new guitar... but it's not a bad excuse to buy a new guitar.... cause I already got the amp..." LOL

    Spark Booster... actually, great! That's not how I intend to use this amp, but it responded very well to a boost in front of it. If you watch the Reverb.com demo, Andy is also using a boost in front of it for much of the demo.

    The more I play it (with my tele and Grestch), the more I think "Nick Curran", not Charlie Christian, BUT... as I said, I don't have a P90 archtop to properly attempt the CC tone.

    I think it will stay. Even if I don't play it a ton, it's still the most affordable way to get into lo-fi Octal territory, and I'll keep it until I get a Loar LH-309 or something similar to mate with it.

    But the Grestch into it definitely has that Nick Curran thing...
