I already have the Mesa, as you can see in my sig. I have located a 8x10 Ampeg in a Pawn Shop. They are asking $399 for it. (I can probably get it for $350) I have not tried it out yet (they had nothing to push it ), but assuming it all works as designed, is it worth getting? I will tell you that the tolex is torn of almost completely on the back, and looks rough, but that can be repaired fairly easy and cheap. My main concern is performance of the cabinet. I will get back here later. Thanks for your comments!!
