    I know of someone who burned out a set of 60Gs in about 3 weeks. They were not left on for a long time with a manual switch, either. I was there when they were installed, and I tested them when they came out. They are not indestructible, they DO go bad. The new set has been in for about 8 months now with no probs.

    I think my GP controler finally kicked the bucket. Turned the key on "click". The GPs turned on. I was moving stuff around inside so I wasn't paying attention to the time I was waiting for the click of them to turn off. They didn't turn off. Had to shut her down and just put my manual swith in. Glad I got 60s in there instead of 9s and have to start pulling heads!!
