I have been so disappointed by so many guitar and bass amps over the years. I find something that works great in situation X but not y. Great way loud but not for the house. I am very tired of being disappointed over and over. I just bought a Gallien Krueger MB 112 bass amp and I have put it through all of the paces last week. Well, all but low voltage, but that is a story for another time. 

It is way louder than a 12 inch bass amp should be but sounds really good at bedroom levels. Likes my p bass, my j bass, and my weird bass. Four band EQ is just right for my ears. It can go dark with a vintage p bass thud and bright like a super modern sound. It is clear enough to run my archtop through and it sounds great. It gets loud without being painful. It is even very good sounding on my acoustic. It would work in a pinch for that with just a touch of reverb and delay. 

I am totally happy with the MB 112 at this point and I look forward to buying the 15 inch extension cabinet.

This definitely one-ups losing a pick in the soundhole.

Ukuleles mildly annoy everyone but the people who are playing them right at that moment. 
Ukuleles against fascism

The fascists have gotten way out of line and every little bit helps.

I am not a fan of the grateful dead but these inlays are totally bad ass.
Tribute

Modeled after Jerry Garcia's famous Irwin custom, Alembic's Tribute makes a perfect canvas for their impressive custom inlay work. The single collage below doesn't even begin to do these guitars justice. For more pics + the story behind each check out Alembic's website:
