    No, only 2 arms, but my daughter and a instructor need a amp to practice in our basement for a upcomming show. (8th grade school)

    No, but my 8th grade daughter needs a amp for her and her instructor to practice in our basement for a upcomming contest.

    Some amps have 2 inputs. When I first started playing (I play bass) I didn't own an amp, I would just show up to practice and plug in the guitarist amp on the 2nd input. It worked fine.
    Just keep in mind that if one guitars pickups are hotter than the other guitars. You will have to adjust the volume knob on the guitars to level out the signal. That way one guitar will not drown out (be louder than) the other.
    Good luck!

    Sorry, :oops: no hard feelings :oops: . If only one input on amp cheapest solution is to make Y cable from 2 regular cables with soldering iron. :cool:

    keep on rockin' :wink:

    Thank you both. I got concerned when a salesperson at a local guitar store said I couldn't unless it had 2 independent channels.

    You can use a Y cable or buy an A/B/Y pedal...

    Salesmen vs Recording.org, yah, Recording.org has more credability without the motivation to make a sale. It's nice to ask a question and get response fro unrelated sources to compare.
