There is one cool video that has some excellent Eric Johnson type plexi tones. Although it seems to be more of a Fender type tone I am curious as to how much gain it gets?

With a 4x12 it can rock big time. Lots of gain on tap.

Great video and tone,.. were they running a Sheba into the front of the amp to push it for this tone/gain (fine with me),..just curious!

Any way to hear some chords and riffing with this EJ type tone - will it do the VH brown sound with or without a Sheba?

You know I've been playing it for a few months now with no OD/compression/distortion, and just using the front end of the amp for that. I'm playing a couple of fantastic Suhr customs (a modern and standard). And it gives me all the gain you'd need. No problem getting the EJ tones, roll the tone back on the bridge pickup a bit with some good gain and it's there. The brown sound is there too, if you want it. On the other hand, I just picked up a couple pedals recently and plugged them into the front end (a Friedman Sir-Compre and a JHS Andy Timmons model Angry Charlie), and it kicked it up a few more notches. Past the point of insanity, actually. So honestly, if you've got a guitar with decently hot pickups, you won't need any additional gain beyond what the amp already has. IMO.

It's fantastic.
