    Oh hell yes be that guy !!! If your single it will benefit you with the ladies like you wouldn't believe. It's like wearing zebra striped spandex with a well placed cucumber in the right spot. Lol.

    On a more serious note, if you see it in front of you, you'll want to play it more.

    Yeah well yes, but actually NO !! play guitar doesnt get you chicks at all.... HAHAHA

    and im not considering myself a "guitarplayer" ..... and im not idetified with it ... actually can´t stand most guitarplayers .. lots of ideas about what you should and should not like, what to listen to, who of the famous players you "have" to like ...... etc etc.. weird as hell and I stay away.

    but now actually drag the 4x12 and Head up the basement stairs and setting it up....putting the casters back on the cab and placing it on a rug ... maybe it will do something for my neighbours ... glad it is a master volume and not 2 channel 4 input beast.... i´ll make it work without bothering my neighbours.

    by the way.....anyone have any experience of using the boss tube expander only as a attenuator ?

    I swear. People who take the pick guards off their Les Pauls and people who display their Marshall amps in their living rooms: they exist just to torture me.

    A Marshall/4x12 and neighbors is like gasoline and a match.

    You don't want those two next to each other.

    Whether it's a combo or a half stack, how could you not have an amp in your living room? Actually, I have both in the living room.

    Dude my livingroom is my jam room. Made the most sense. Of course it helps that my wife is the lead singer of the main band I am in LOL. DO IT!

    But that gives meaning to my otherwise meaningless existence.

    Very well, I can understand and empathize with your situation. Go ahead then, but the rest of you - just stop it. Stop it right now!

    Outch!!

    None! I was very disappointed my second go-around in a band a few years ago. I was ready for it to be like when I was 28 in one. Women look at me know, playing, and seem to think I'm from East White Trashville, and that they're probably paying for my medical insurance. No, not like it used to be at all being older, in my experience. Now, in all fairness I wouldn't get with these old tires hangin' out at Bobby Bill's Grub and Pub anyway. Seems they'd smell like a farm animal. (Lol - private laughter moment).

    It's my belief that women never ever got "into" guitar players par sa - they're just captured by the phenomenon of whatever "it" may be at a given point in time then ditch it for what's coming next.

    Unplugged 80s Nintendo, knockoff raybans, a power drill without a battery, what looks like a box of 5" floppy disks, one plastic chair, Soviet-style floors

    ....yeah, I don't think the Marshall will be a problem.
