Well,

1. It is about 12 x 6 inches, black, has a bunch of knobs and your guitar and headphones plug into it [:D]

2. A really cool guitar accessory that has very many effects and simulates many of the famous amp sounds.

I really like mine!

why would you think it's a great idea if you dont know what it is?

that sounds just like a mini amp with a headphone port

another item to look at is the Korg Pandora's box, the ax-4. it has a pre amp, effects, rhythm section and bassline.  heck even teh ax 2 or the ax-3 would do(no preamp)  Not to take away from the Johnson.
  Hey punk, be good now!  Ha ha.[:)]

what do I think about when i play?  Left finger, right finger, left finger, thumb...Doh!

they say on the site that it's one of the most popular amps ever, so maybe it is an amp... i dont know. but yeah, great idea- small and portable. isn't that what an Mbox is?

I've had a J-Station for 2 years and I'd describe it as an amp modeler or amp computer.

Basically, you can plug it in, plug into it, plug in your headphones and quietly make your guitar sound like anything you want by emulating various amps in the presets of by mixing and matching models.

What I prefer is to plug it into something like a Hiwat Bulldog 30 amp, one of the cleanest little solid state amps I know, and make the amp itself actually sound like a wall of Marshalls or an old Blackface. Be careful about using it with a tube amp - not recommended.

The only emulations I don't particularly like are the acoustic guitars.

For about $150 new, it's going to do a lot more than those new fangled $999 Line 6 guitars and it will fit in a briefcase. Cool toy.

ok, i've read a good deal about them, but i still don't know how they work. how can the line 6 guitars know what your playing if they don't have pickups? at least all the pics I've seen of them don't have pickups.
