So I was in the market for a new bigger amp. Had a 4x10 deville on layaway at GC for $450 when in the back of my mind I new I wanted a blues deluxe. Well posted a wanted ad on Craigslist this morning for a blues deluxe, guy almost immediately follows up with a blues deluxe but in really rough shape. In not one to care Bout beat up tweed Amp I think they look great broken in. So I went to his house to check it out and needless to say left with the amp. Best part (IMO) is its a made in the USA version! And was a lot cheaper than the deville I was looking at Couple upgrades, wired in master switch to tame the loud clean channel, eminence red white and blues speaker a small fan installed on the inside of the cab with a separate plug for those hot days to keep the tubes cool and brand new tubes with a new spare set.
