    Would you make this trade?

    It's best to check Reverb sales prices when you have a question like this. The made in USA Pro Junior's have been selling from $350-500 while the Boss Katana 50's are going for $150-200. Barely worth half of your amp.

    Affordable 1x12 Cab?

    Well I went on Amazon to buy the Monoprice and it went up to $249 so I may keep looking for something used.

    Affordable 1x12 Cab?

    I've seen the Monoprice and Joyo cabs and both look surprisingly decent quality for the cost. I'd likely swap the Vintage 30 but at that price it wouldn't be an issue.

    Affordable 1x12 Cab?

    Looking for a reasonably priced 1x12 open-back cab for the Gries AA764 head I just ordered. I will likely load it with an Eminence GA-SC64 since that seems to be a well regarded speaker for this type of amp. Any suggestions?

    NGD: 2022 G&L ASAT Classic S Alnico

    HNGD! I like the satin finish and I bet it has a nice tactile feel compared to gloss.

    Is $1,599.99 a good price for a new G&L ASAT Classic S option order guitar?

    There is a G&L Built To Order form that you can fill out on the Axe Palace website. It looks like the ASAT Classic models start at $1825 base and add $275 for the option of the S pickup configuration. Then premium options go up from there of course. So a minimum of $2,100 for the base model...

    New Partscaster Day

    Killer deal and HNPD! That wiring harness alone costs over $80.

    Small Amp With Black Panel Cleans?

    I just placed an order for the Gries AA764. Mr. Gries has been incredibly helpful and answered all my questions immediately. While the '68 VCR was really tempting, the quality components, 3 year warranty, and 3 band EQ of the AA764 head sold me.

    Hardtail Purple Partscaster - Finally Finished

    I watched those MJT auctions for months but the ones that came up were always too reliced for me. Dustin from Bloomdoom gave me a killer price on this one. I paid less than most of the Alder trem bodies on Ebay go for, and he let me choose the level of relic (closet clean) and was happy to...

    Hardtail Purple Partscaster - Finally Finished

    I've been wanting a hardtail Strat with a purple metallic finish and Ash body for a long time. The Custom Shop is a few thousand out of budget so I set off to building it. My goal was to use smaller manufacturers with a good reputation wherever possible(minus accoutrement). It took a few months...

    Small Amp With Black Panel Cleans?

    Thanks for the input everyone. I've narrowed it down to the Vibro Champ Reverb and the Gries AA764 at this point. However, I emailed Dave Gries with some questions and he was super friendly and helpful, and this circuit sounds just like what I want.

    Small Amp With Black Panel Cleans?

    Killer amps but a ways out of my price range unfortunately.

    Small Amp With Black Panel Cleans?

    The Quilter amps look pretty interesting but I'd like to stick to tubes with this amp. I have a JC-22 that covers the solid state needs pretty well with pedals.

    Small Amp With Black Panel Cleans?

    That one has been on my list but they don't seem to go for much less on the used market than they do new. The reverb and tremelo are cool, but from what I can tell they can use a speaker swap so that's another added cost.
