In happier news, I got rid of my gun. Traded it for a guitar amplifier. A Line 6 Spider Valve combo amp. Lookit, there's a picture and everything!
Did I NEED a new amplifier? No. Did I need a gun? No. And at least I'll actually use the amplifier more than 2-3 times a year. It is actually sort of a neat amp too. It is a traditional vacuum tube driven amplifier, except with digital wizardry jammed in their as well. It has artist presets from such "notable" bands as Slipknot and Vertical Horizon... LOL!

And did I mention that it is LOUD? It is. Very loud. Some of the amps Line 6 makes are basically expensive guitar toys, but I've seen these amps on stage, on TV just this week although I can't remember what band was playing. It is never going to replace my old Peavey amp, but it is pretty fun to mess with and if I hook them both up to one guitar I can get some pretty cool stereo effects going on. Now, if I can just get Pro Tone Pedals to ship my distortion pedal, I'll be set for the year.
