But there is a reason why you don't see Jeff Loomis or Steve Vai playing a Spider...
I think the reason you don't see big names playing Line 6 amps is because of the fact that they can afford to play whatever they want. I don't claim that it's the best thing out there, but for what I paid for it, I think it's fairly untouchable. But if I had my own endorsement deal with the amp company of my choice and access/money to whatever gear I wanted, I really doubt I'd make the same choice. But for a relatively affordable solid state head, the versatility it provides is excellent. And I know what you mean about processed, "fake" tone, but I think if you manipulate the amp, it's capable of a lot more than that.
