With the black Friday sale I jumped into a 3 and fc6. The only reason I upgraded from an ultra was for the USB on the 2 (original mk1 axe 2).I've been happy but the mfc was always giving me errors. After a few drinks with the family I just ordered a 3 and fc6. I have no idea how much better if at all my life will be with this thing but I just want you all to make me feel good about spending that kind of money on something I had no need for. Thanks!
