    That is a neat little amp. Wouldn't mind scoring one....

    How does it sound?

    They sound really good. Old-school, Classic tone.

    It puts out such a rich, deep tone for such a small box. I paid more than you did for mine and still feel like i got a great deal. I can't imagine selling it. Congrats on the score!

  7. That's one of the few Ampeg combos I like. I almost bought a used one a few years back for more than that. Had no problems getting a tone that fit perfectly in the acoustic setting I was playing in, but ended up not getting it because it wasn't enough for the other project I had going on. Should serve you well and if you ever decide to sell it, shouldn't have a problem recouping your money.
