Haha, I'll pass on the white juke then.

A true juke is African American and that's how it should be.

Hey Goldbrick,
Thats how my guitar was originally.
I added a P-90 pickup and got a custom tortiseshell pickguard made. I added a 4-way switch and gold dome knobs.
Its really a great little guitar...I also love the neck. It fits my hand perfect and plays like a dream.

Thanks Derek......its not bad for a 10 inch x 10" battery amp. cost me $125.00
Its actually louder than I need at 5watts. But its adjustable to 1.5 and .5 with a switch on back.
I got it to jam camping and at the park.

Thanks again Slickcat, I've noticed that this amp actually sounds better then the roland street powered battery.

oh yeah........you can use the line in input on the back to play backing tracks. I load my BT's on my
I-pod then I can play along with backing tracks. :D

So I could probably add a looper for the BT tracks? and play like that?


Nice.

I'm sure the roland does too but that vox has a nice tone to it.
