YouTube - Rare U2 The Electric Co 1984

Twilight - most if not all tours.
A Sort of Homecoming - The Unforgettable Fire tour.

That's a lot of really cool gear. One thing I noticed on your list is the Squier Duo Sonic. I've wanted to play one of those since I first heard of them but haven't gotten a chance. What does it sound/play like?

The Duo Sonic, to me, physically feels like a super-light Strat, which is not surprising. Playing it feels quite a bit different than any other Fender I've played though, because the scale is so much shorter, so the strings aren't as tight. It's probably the least noisy single-coil guitar I've ever played, I think because it's shielded very well.

As far as the sound goes, the neck pickup is somewhat Strat-like, while the bridge alone sounds more like a Telecaster bridge pickup than a Strat bridge. It has more body to it than a Strat bridge.

It's certainly very different than most of my other guitars, and is by far the lightest and smallest. I'm not a big fan of the super-glossy neck, but I deal with it.

Cool! So it's kinda like having a strat and a tele in one. I must try one.

Sort of. I mean, it doesn't get that oddball Strat position 2 and 4 sounds, but it is sort of a mix of the Strat neck and the Tele bridge. Feelwise though, it's not really similar to either one as far as the neck and string tension goes.

A cheaper alternative to the Celestion Blue but sounds just as lovely. I bought my AC15 from Mick (The Unforgettable Fire - NY tribute). He'd done the mod form the greenbacks to the Alnico Blue.

Be sure to get the ALNICO BLUE NOT the Ceramic.

I have my birthday coming up and I'm wanting to know if I should use my money ($200.00) and get a multi effects unit or save for an AC15? This probably quite fairly obvious as to where to go. And I know it's totally my decision but I was just wondering on what your opinion(s) are?
