Johnson amps

Hey guys,

Any of you have any experience with a Johnson Blue Line amp? I hear good things about those. They're solid state, but supposedly well built with a nice fat tone.


God, I should really stay off the internet... The internet gives me GAS. ;-)

Hey Smurf

I've heard a few people say good things about their tone too...i.e. "good tone for the bucks". Unfortunately we only have one Johnson dealer in town and you're lucky to find even a single Johnson guitar hanging on their racks. So there's no chance I'll get to hear one anytime soon.

The only Johnson amp I've ever played was something similar to the Line6 amps (digital effects and what-not) with a tube pre-amp. When you didn't have any of the effects on, it wasn't that bad for a hybrid.
