    My new Boss Katana with my old Les Paul Goldtop. They compliment each other quite well.

    Happy new Katana day. I have a 25 too and it's pretty much all I use since I got it. That's a sweet Goldtop too - what year?

    I haven't had the chance to try one out. Maybe I should take a spin to my local GC and check. Nice lookin' pair.

    Thanks. It started life in 2011 as a 50s Tribute. I loved the way it sounded and played so much I went full monte on it. :ROFLMAO:

    Nice looking rig. You've got a lot of territory covered between those two.

    I want a Katana so bad it's silly. I've got a VHT Special 6 Ultra that I would straight up trade for a Katana Combo. The Ultra is just too much amp for me and I like the idea of being able to use the Katana for an acoustic amp as well. I've actually got it up for sale locally now hoping to fund a Katana. That's the long way around to say that I'm very jealous of you right now!

    Thanks. I traded my Laney Cub 12R towards the K100. As much as I loved the Laney, I love the Kat even more. I still have a few other tube amps around the house but haven't touch any other amp in several months.

    Very nice, both.
    Especially the gold top.

    I hear good things about the Katana.
    Too deep a rabbit hole for me, but a lot of folks dig it.

    Did you do the scrape edge for the natural binding look? If so I'd love to hear how you did it.

    Nice pair - I've recently started looking seriously at the Katana (the 50 for me) so am trying to take in anything & everything I can find right now.

    I'd love to know more about that Gibby too - what have to done to it since you bought it?

    They are a good looking amp, and I keep hearing good things about them. And my Carvin is in need of some work (nothing major, but it'll be a pain in the butt). Thinking about it...

    A pretty nice pair of nicely pared pears.
