So, I'm going abroad for work for a few weeks but I think I'll have significant down time. I've determined I'm going to bring a tele with me - just remove the neck and stick it in my luggage. I've done this a couple of times before when I don't need to travel real light, someday I'll have an extra small guitar for travel but it's nice just to have a real one and be done with it. I have a couple of options for amplification, but I always want to travel light so I bought Amplitube from Sweetwater, planning to bring along my little recording interface and use the computer for my practice amp - and...I hate it. Took a while to get the whole driver thing sorted out (still don't know what I did) - now it works but it has huge latency issues, which maybe I could fix, given lots of trial and error, but I am just SO burned out on stupid computer nonsense. Playing guitar is when I don't have to look at a screen! So I was moping around in my attic / guitar junk area and rediscovered my Joyo American sound (I also have an Ammoon AC Tone). Plugged it into my stereo - and it sounds killer, like I'd remembered but forgot. And I have a little portable Bose speaker, the kind you keep in your kitchen, takes up no space. So I plugged it into the Joyo! I like it far better than the Blackstar Fly 3, actually I'm very pleased with how it sounds. I don't need effects or other junk to practice with, just a decent amp tone and a good guitar. I might take along my Digitech Trio (fake drum and bass thing) too just for good measure.
