Re: For the record... skin effect, or lack thereof.
Most textbooks confirm your friend is correct. Most skin effect issues came up in test gear and FM tuners (built when people like Marantz and Sequerra and Fisher gave a shit). They silver plated the front-ends for improved s/n ratio and better performance. Agreed, on guitar amps it's not a factor.  
BTW Ken: I have some thoughts on your cascode we should discuss e-mail me. af
