    The seller says its an old 70's Ibanez with two 8", and 4 inputs :confused: .
    Got riverb+ vibrato.
    I'm looking for an amp for my dorms and this sounds kinda cool.
    Any info on that?

    It's a guitar amp at best. Might get enough for a Dorm but not much else.

    You like books by Capt. W E Johns perchance??

    Capt. W E Johns :confused: nope sorry.
    So I guess I need to check it out by myself.
    If someone got any more info, that will be great.

    Capt. W. E. Johns created the fictitious pilot/adventurer, James "Biggles" Bigglesworth:)

    Mr Bigglesworth is also the cat in austin powers I think?

    As far as the amp, it looks like a clone of a National or Gibson amp (reminds me of the Thor that was up for sale recently). Probably not going to be of much use other than for a dorm, but it might sound pretty cool in a lo-fi kind of way.
