    If I wasn't fixing a SVT, I'd be on it...
     
  4. It's one of their transistor (solid-state) models, late 80's or early 90's I believe.

    If you know anything about fixing transistor amps, could be worth.......well, really, it ain't worth all that much, even if it weren't broken. If you know nothing about fixing amps, you're buying trouble. Amp service ain't cheap, and this probably isn't a good amp for a beginner to learn electronics troubleshooting on.

    Personally I wouldn't buy it "sight unseen", and I dabble in fixing amps. It has the potential to cost more in shipping than the thing's worth.

    Ampeg is a very interesting company in that they tried so many products over the years that you will continually trip across these closet cases. I applaud them for taking the chances to bring something new to market, but I wonder how much market research they do, and how much marketing support they throw behind these orphans. They do make for interesting collector pieces.
