New Amp and Guitar Week!

Wow! I am in love with this pair:
Ernie Ball Music Man Mariposa Guitar (Pueblo Pink)
Orange Rocker 32 tube amp

I am much more of a bass player but this rig has me pumped about guitar! One of the reasons why I got the rocker 32 was for the stereo capabilities of the FX loop but I haven’t even wanted to plug in any effects yet.

The Mariposa’s neck feels amazing - roasted maple finished in gun stick wax finish. The pickups are great, nice high output humbuckers but the notes have a ton of clarity.

This rig is better than my skill level but it sure is fun.

Thanks, i have been playing it a bunch, really pleased.

I have a Mesa cab in my bass rig but no longer have a Mesa head (using an Ampeg PF50 these days). I was considering something like a F50 when I was doing this amp search. If I earn the next level up in amps, a higher end Mesa Boogie would be on the short list. What are you getting?

I've played a few MM guitars and basses. Always solid performers.
Don't know why, but for all the years they have been around, I've never played an Orange amp. Just never had the opportunity, I guess.
Enjoy your new instruments!
If I have water in my ear, is it safe for me to listen to electronic music?

Likewise here. I really need to try one. I hear those Rocker 32 ones are really nice...
