Got if for $50 at an antique fair with my grandpa. It's HUGE! It was Oakland, too, so getting there at 7:00 in the morning was a treat. Well, the lady wanted $75, but my grandpa gave ame a tip on how to talk someone's price down and it worked.

Bonuses!: It came with a home-made brown-ish vinyl cover, a 60s cable (authentic as can be), and a cool 60s strap that says BROWN (god knows why), that goes great with my Electra. It's a lot lighter in weight than my former strap, a black Dunlop[ w/ gromets, too.

Oh, I was waiting outside of the porti-potty row as my grandpa was taking care of business, and some lady comes up from behind me as I'm sitting on my recently-purchased Peavey and asks me what kind of music I play. I tell her a lot of 50s-60s, which is true, and she replies that I look like I'm into a lot of Rockabilly (dead on, I had just bought the original vinyl for Stray Cats' Built For Speed, with Rock This Town, Stray Cat Strut, Rumble in Brighton, Runaway Boys and more for only $4.50!).

I'm sure she got this from the way I was dressed. I had darkish blue jeans (not like bordering on black, just Levi 569s), a white t-shirt, a bullet on a necklace (tucked in my shirt, I don't want to get shot, Christ, it was Oakland!), and a black leather jacket zipped up about 30%, since it used to be cold and was warming up (this is at like 9:00 AM). I also have my hair in kind of a teddy-boy/greaser kind of thing, not a pompadour (I can't do that very well, I need to practice more :haha ), but it's definitely got the coiff. I also have my sideburns down to about lip-level.

So anyway, she then adds that she's a booking agent (!). I say that's cool, and my grandpa comes out of the bathroom. He asks what that was all about, and I tell him what just happened. This makes me realize how retarded I really am, as I didn't even ask for a business card or anything. I told one of my bandmates and he agreed.Well, this amp is cool. I need to get me a Boss Blues Driver, though, since it only has clean. The clean is good though, nothing beats a clean tube amp!

This is a 1977, I just found out (thank you, Google), so that adds to my vintage "collection"
