I knew if I lived long enough someone would notice! Seriously, I'm entirely satisfied with my RV300. Cheap, convenient, sounds good - a winning triad.

I don't really care what others lift for their gigs. An RV300 + Fuhrman P1800 (or whatever it is I own - on a train now!) + SMS + 6U Gator rack (6U for added ventilation) killed my back & my current configuration is wieldy & versatile.

Actually, Jon, I've hired Big Steve to be my full-time guitar tech. I've already got a Tiger replica with a warped neck and 7/64" action, a couple of old McIntosh amps, and Candace Brightman designing light shows for the bars my cover band plays in, but bringing Steve in on it is what'll push it over the edge and give me the sound.
