LA Amp Show - VHT Special 6 Ultra,AXL Badwater USA

November 2, 2010
PG's Joe Coffey is On Location at the 2010 LA Amp Show where he visits the VHT Amplifiers and AXL Guitars room. In this segment, we get to see a prototype from both companies--a VHT Special 6 Ultra head and a Badwater USA S-style guitar.

The VHT Special 6 Ultra is based on the Special 6 head that was released at last Winter NAMM, but has an EL34 power tube. The Badwater USA prototype is based on the popular Badwater import series created by AXL last year, but now they are bringing the guitars from their privately-owned Chinese factories and having them assembled, fret-dressed, and fitted with high-quality components in their California shop.
