    ROAD was popular in the 70's. I've used that amp before... it worked fine at the time. So did my Kustom 200 (which was built in Chanute, KS) with 3-15 cab;)

    Haha, Kustom. What color was it? Hot pink puffy vinyl or matte neon orange?

    haha indeed:D

    It was white sparkle Naugahyde (even came with a Nauga), 3-15 cab with chrome ports. And people think Bergantinos are flashy;)

    As a representative of animal rights, I would like to condemn the senseless slaughter of innocent naugas for the furtherecne of the music industry...btw...is a nauga an animal?
