Very cool Les. I didn't realize you're in Michigan, I am as well. Or at least I hope to be back after I finish grad school!
I may be the minority here but after 25 years of playing I have only ruin across 1 mesa boogie amp that sounded good to my ears, a mark II C+ I believe it was. That amp just had this black magic mojo that was unreal. Sadly I didn't buy it (smacks self over and over). I have always found myself playing "other" amps. On the other hand, PRS amps , at least the ones I have played through, seem to work exceptionally well with just about any guitar I plug into them.
