I was in high school at the time, my buddy's dad was an old bass player. This is when I was getting pretty serious about the bass, he told me that he had an old amp in storage and I could have it. My buddies dad and I went to the storage place and opened up the door and there was an old Kustom amp. Needed a little cleaning on the plush but it was sweet! And it was free! Ended up playing with the guy a few times. Years later I was ready for something different and ended up giving it back to him, he started playing again after almost 20 years, said I got him back into the low end. Always good karma!
