Ok, need a tuner...Peterson strobstomp hd or turbo tuner? Also, using Nashville 112. Do I need to use the effects loop for reverb/delay/etc,? This is all new for me on this PSG! Thanks in advance!

I also will need cords...length to go from guitar to volume pedal, then to amp, and jumpers if I use any effects. What is a normal length from guitar to volume pedal?

Thanks Barry. I was looking at the BJS John Hughey 7/8 x 3 3/8 at 7 1/2 ounces. Would the lighter bar be a hindrance in any way?

If I understand you what you are saying, there will be the 2 pre-amps but through 1 power amp on the super. I think you were meaning speakers independent of each other?

Thx Jerry. They will change the output transformer. Like I said, not going back with 4-10s due to weight. Do you have a preference for speaker size or number since will be for steel or guitar?

You know, I also have a Peavey Bandit 112, one of the first ones and I think it is 80 watts. That's what the Nashville amp has I think. I don't know why it wouldn't work, too.
