I have taken very good care of this amp but have gone back to GK. Everything is in working order and ive never had any problems, it is about 9 months old. i have drilled holes in the side of the SKB case to allow ventilation as the vents are on the sides. these cases are about $50 used and it is in fair shape, some scratching but nothing major. i will pack it bomb proof. also possibly interested in bass trades, mostly fender 70s reissue jazzes.
