    Had one of these combos about 6 or so years ago and sold it when my gigging slowed down at the time. Wished I had never sold it as it was a workhorse for about 4 years as my practice amp and smaller gigs with PA support.

    Found this beauty a couple months ago and it looked like it had never been out of the house. I snagged it and the only thing wrong with it was the fan seemed really loud from what I remember my old one sounded like. Bought a new fan at Full Compass (took about 6 weeks to get) hoping that would solve the problem, and voilà, it's like a new combo!

    I've never 're-bought' a piece of gear before, but this was one of those I did regret selling being how versatile it can be with the addition of an extension cab. The only downside is I forgot how heavy it is and you have to be careful wheeling it around so as to not tip it over on the wedge side.

    That looks MINT! Nice catch.
    I am on the market for a combo and am very much looking into older Pegs as modern amps don't entice me as much.
    Enjoy your new (old) toy!
