    I was wondering if anyone knew if this guitar amp would be worth buying. I could get a VERY good deal on it.

    Although it's a guitar amp, I still think it'll get a better response in Amps.

    Just wanna bump this cause this was the only thread that came up under ST42. I bought one of these from my local music shop not knowing much about it as information online is hard to come by. They had the cab sitting in the bass section so I even thought it was a bass cab. Overall this amp has a great tone, the notes are crispy and ring nicely. It's not lacking in low end like you might expect from a guitar amp. Mine has 4 old Altec-Lansing speakers in it which I beleive are 75 watts but I'm not positive. Anyone know anything else?

    I tried one once. IIRC, it was a 4-12 cab with a flip-top head like a very large Portaflex. The amp had something backlit (blue) I think, like the name. It was solid state, probably mid-seventies, and it didn't sound bad on bass but I doubt it would get very loud.
