...many of my preferences are a matter of Cost Benefit Analysis and Diminishing Returns. I am pretty sure that if I were wealthy, I would be buying super duper amps that are PERFECT and likely a different one for each genre I am interested in. Maybe two. Same with guitars. Hells to the Yeah I would search the world for necks that I love, looks that kill, and the most amazing pickups. But........I'm not wealthy, and frankly, I can probably do 98 percent of the music I do on much more modest gear and even if I am only getting 90 percent of the tone for 10 percent of the cost, I'll take that alllllllllllll day.
