    Great looking amp and guitar. I've only ever played through a Matchless Chieftain and that was only for about 10 minutes.... but I loved it!!!

    That Lightning must be pretty hard to carry around. Good choice on the casters on the case though!

    "Matchless"? Looks like a pretty good match to me...

    No it's not too hard to carry on its own, at least for short distances. What you see in the pic is the amp sitting in the wheeled part of its flight-case. On a gig, this sits in the inverted top part, making a perfect amp stand. You can see it behind me here:

    I had the Spitfire and at 45 lbs its definitely not something you can carry around for too long. :)

    It's all I need amp-wise. Didn't stop me buying a Swart for home use though ;)

    You clearly have tolerant neighbours!

    Not my house, the clients had a moving-in party. The neighbours on one side were away, the rest all got invited to the party. It was nice and warm when that pic was taken, but once the sun went down I was frozen, despite a hoodie and a beanie.

    That's why when I finally buy a house, it will be completely detach as far away from neighbors as possible. Not possible right now in New York City, where I live, but def possible in the rest of the USA. As I grow older, I dislike people more and more, especially if you are gonna come knocking on my door and telling me to turn the amp down.
