Like most here, I fight the constant battle against persistent GAS. However, every now and then I get really serious about replacing current gear with something new and different. Such was the case tonight. I was ready to give in and order a Fargen Olde 800 MKII tomorrow. Then I plugged into my Mesa RA100 and it sounded as good as I've ever heard it sound. It's like it knew I was thinking of replacing it and it brought it's "A" game just to make me rethink things. This has also happened to me with guitars. How do they know?
