    I assume it's an affiliation to Rogue guitars.

    At $60, why not? Test it out first.

    heck yeah! that baby was my second amp!

    well, not that one, but the same model.

    -it's affordable
    -decent sound (it's no svt, that's for sure, but the 15 pushes enough low end to make it sound like a bass amp.)
    -easily transported
    -parametric eq
    -no horn control (they may have removed the horn on the design, but mine had one)
    -high end hiss (not bad at low volume, or if you cut the highs)
    -guitar players rarely heard me over drummers (i could hear myself just fine)
    -drummers rarely heard me over themselves (then again, these were teenagers playing as hard as they could.)
    -knobs felt cheap. they never broke, but they don't feel solid to me.
    -speaker blew after a couple of years
    -slight crackle when i turned the eq knobs.

    it'll get you by. i'd recommend running it through a p.a. whenever possible, however. it's not the greatest, but $60 sounds like a good enough deal to me.

    "Rogue" is the old house brand by Musician's Friend/Guitar Center

    "Acoustic" is one of their new house brands.

    If you don't know what you're doing, buying used of any brand is a coin toss. Take someone along who does know. (Not your drummer)

    it's's "house brand". It's crap, but for $60 (obo!) would probably be an ok deal.

    Of the options so far, I'd go with the fender.

    I would go with the Fender BXR first and the Peavey TKO 2nd (it only has 75 watts). I would not buy the Rogue. Those other 2 are much better and those are good prices if they work.

    i actually bought a peavey tko when the speaker blew on my rogue. it's better, but not by much. go with the fender, as long as it works.

    Offer $75 for the fender and settle with $100. If it works ok, speaker is in good shape, no repairs needed beyond a little deoxit spray, that's not a bad deal for the money.
