    I've been wanting to play with one of those. Have fun with it on your vacation.

    I travel with one of these:

    I've had one since this past summer. It's fun.

    My advice: the amp's input impedance is very low, so to get the most out of it, put a buffered pedal in front of it.

    Pignose fan here. Play mine all the time. Great sittin' on the couch amp.

    To get good cleans, use the guitar volume.

    Took me a while to spot it, kinda like a gear 'Where's Wally'.....

    (Or Waldo on your side of the pond....)

    My brother had one from the mid ‘70’s to the late 90’s... it was his only amp.

    Being a car as well as a guitar enthusiast, for a moment I hoped you were saying you've got one of these...

    Still not disappointed, though... Enjoy it! :D

    It's a Toyota 240SX S13, the particular model colloquially known as "pignose" due to the peculiar shape of its radiator vents. A very beloved model for its affordability (now requiring lower and lower standards, though...) and potential for drift builds. ;)

    Oh yeah!

    Old school. These little 'Noses are what they are. And unlike modern portable amps they don't pretend to be anything else.

    Simple circuits. Simple sounds. -Plural because there's the open case sound which is really one all its own.

    I've had one for years. Bought and used just for such times and places as shown here. In the yard. Far away from everything.

    Oh, fail! Texting while waiting my sis to pick her from school, not paying the most attention to the least important task... ;)
