Well as I was thinking of the old days when everybody owned just one guitar and one amp maybe one effect maybe not; we were too broke to have more but the music was great. Now we have multiple guitars and amps and over obsess on woods, pickups, tubes or finish or......... but I do not hear much music anymore as I hop form one guitar to another or from amp to amp or the endless tweaking with speakers, pickups, tubes etc. So I am going back and really going to learn my guitar with my amp. No multi-effects or even one pedal just guitar, cord, amp (no changing tube types to effect change (12ay7 to 12Ax7 or types of speakers etc.) and one string type. My Choice for one year with no changes: 1993 Fender '52RI with the original wiring (I stick in between middle and bridge position to get both pickups when I want), 10 gauge Thomastik-Infield Jazz Swing Nickel Flat-wound strings (do not fear these can twang like a ...... when needed), Lil Dawg D-Lux with Weber 12A125 speaker; Tubes are 5Y3, 12AY7, 12AX7, 6V6s That's it, my Gibson, Strat and other amps, drawer full of pickups etc. are put away. I will let you no the results in a year.
