Any good sources for pilot light bulbs?

    I've lost the bulb on my Buster! Bass combo amp. It went and burned out on me in the middle of a gig. Scary for a few seconds, but ultimately, no biggie.

    My question is, besides the obvious source (mesa boogie), I was wondering of anyone else knows of places I could find these bulbs (GE #47).

    The web, or better yet places like Pep Boys... I know that the thermistor bulb in my Acme B4 was actually a tail-light lamp! :D I've also found bulbs for littlelight gooseneck lamps there. Just not the ol GE #47. Not yet, anyway!

    Thanx folks!

    Radio Shack was the correct answer, sir!!!

    The R.S. equivalent to the GE #47 bulb is catalog #272-1110. Got a 2-pak for $1.49 + tax!

    Info should be handy for those of us with Mesa's, Fender's and others that use similar pilot light assemblies!

    Many thanx! :D
