I recently flipped a guitar for $60 profit, so my gear fund was unusually high. I found a guy locally selling a guitar and this amp. But I wasn't interested in his Epi 339. Offered 100 for just the amp. He countered at 130, and we landed on 120 as the final price. I have plenty of tube amps, but I've been wanting a nicer SS amp for a little while now. I think this will do just fine.
