Well, I'm kind of partial to my solid state Studio 85 (I didn't like the red knobs, though, so I replaced them shortly after buying it new with blue ones). It's this one here: Of course I did make one small modification to it: My last gig was 1985, and that was before I owned the amp. I only play it in the bedroom. However, for a nice, round jazz tone on the clean "channel" (it's not truly a dual-channel amp), I think it does pretty well. I like to call it my "poor man's Polytone." I've been playing at being a guitarist to a greater or lesser extent since 1965, and my other guitar amps are tube* (for what that's worth), so I'm not entirely without some basis for offering a positive review. It gets babied, so I can't comment on the build quality. I will say I busted the first input jack, which is plastic, and I wasn't happy about that. EDIT: *Except for an ElectroHarmonix 44 Magnum, if that counts.
