    Mine is also an 83. Bought brand new back then. I've only had one problem in 20 years and it was because I had it in a soft case that wasn't ventilated, so it got too hot and some repairs had to be made. I use a Walter Woods now and the GK maybe see's one gig a year when I have to do a street fair or something I don't want to drag the woods to. For 10 years I used it with a bi-ampable BFI cabinet that had 2-10s and an 18 in one enclosure. It sounded great in the 80s.
