Been waiting for a 15% off sale at MF to snag a GK MB200 as a general purpose backup for guitar and bass. And I had an epiphany this morning that if I bought another old 400RB (the old style blocky jobbies) perhaps GK would refurb it for me the way Peavey does with older gear. As I hear it, Peavey's prices for SS lead sled bass amp refurbs aren't bad at all. And when received it looks, feels, and plays like new again.
Anyone know if GK offers this service? Anyone had it done? How far did they go? Was it cost effective compared to buying 2 or 3 old 400RBs and just trashing them once they give it up?
I had on old 400RB that had to be one of the very first ones made, and it sounded killer and ran like a raped ape. Punchy and growly with a bass or a guitar. Loved humbuckers. I want THAT sound on a backup head, but I want it uber reliable and cheap. That's probably mutually exclusive.
