    That was the amp that first turned me on to modeling amps, I had the 15, I think?? I was shocked by how good the thing was.

    Then I got a Mustang, which seems to be a similar thing with a different interface, but the Gdec always is impressive.

    They had it listed on FB Marketplace for $300, then put it on craigslist for $150, I don't get it, but I'll take it!

    FB marketplace is really strange. I see a listing, then I can't find it again for days, even when I search for it.

    Then an amp I like shows up that's been listed for 6 days, that I've never seen before.

    Their algorithms are strange, and I don't get it.

    craigslist at least goes in a logical order-by date.

    Cool guitar, nice find.

    I owned an amp like that, not a fan personally. Sold it for next to nothing.

    I've got my Katana, and 3 mustangs, so I won't be holding onto it for long, but not a bad free bonus with the guitar and case.
