Lots of clearance stuff during the Halloween sale, including this standard rehearsal amp. Couldn't resist! Every time I go to buy a practice amp, I come home with something at least 350W and backstrain big. Dunno if all the GCs have these at this price during the sale, but it's worth a shot. They also have most of the Bassman combos on sale at at least 55% off MSRP. I've always felt Ampeg gear was insanely overpriced for what it was, but I don't have a problem with this amp brand new at this price.
