    Yeah, I caught that last night. Pretty damn good tone all the way around. Even Frank's drum sound is more killer than usual.

    Sounds cool and looks cool..but is this a case of people hearing with they're eyes? I mean how much different are they than a marshall in a retro/vintage style box? Billy G's all about the look these day's. Not to mention endorsements don't hurt.

    Sure, looks cool, but its the tone that got me.. Maybe that Tele has a lot to do with it.

    Billy Gibbons always sounds great to me no matter what he’s playing!

    High end amps these Magnatones, a lot of detail and consideration goes into these amps. Quite expensive too!

    Yeah, those new Magnatone's do sound killer, never seen one in the wild but ive got plenty experience with old one's. I've had 5 or 6 and currently own a '59 280 and a '62 213 Troubadour.
