    Hey, if they only have 4 strings, why do they need so many stinkin' knobs!

    I'm not sure why they are, but it may have something to do with how hard they are to carry and how banged up they get.

    Classically understated is a perfect look ...on anything/anybody. FWIW the Acoustic 371/301 pairing pretty much demand the eye’s attention as well as the ear’s.

    Same could be asked about every Peavey guitar amp with the exception of the Classic 30.

    You could not only hear great tone, you could smell it!
