    Ok... I got the 1975 HD 130 out of storage and it needed quite a bit of TLC. Full cap job, speakers reconed, new reverb tank, foot switch repair... the works! $467 parts and labor from the best amp guy in the area.

    Worth every penny! It sounds spectacular! The tones! The reverb deep enough to swim it. That tremolo with that crazy Doppler effect! For the first time in decades the guitar and amp I bought when I was 18 are together again. I resurrect the 68’ Strat last summer and now the Music Man. This amp was supposedly delivered by Leo himself in the first shipment the shop received in Arizona. Like that old Strat it’s sentimental value to me is almost priceless. My first 1000 one nighters were all played on that amp.

    Time to go. I got some picking and grinning to do...Bye!

    Good for you Slim! Looks great.

    My Music Man 65/210 is still my favorite and best sounding amp. Enjoy yourself.

    Yes I tried looking them up but was saddened that they didn’t exist anymore. I bought the amp and a Uni-Vibe that day. The Uni-Vibe is long gone to some land fill somewhere.
