I've come across one. Don't see to many around. Only places are Reverb or eBay.....never locally. Should I pounce on it?? Who in the Gibson Community has one? What's your opinion on the amp? Thanks in advance...Happy New Year all

If you get the chance to scoop one up, don't hesitate. These are some of the finest amps out there. It's a shame they aren't produced anymore; if they were, they'd be a lot more expensive these days though.

yep! I have one just like it. Mine is I think from 2002, which is maybe what yours is, since they changed the cab and covering right around then.

it is an awesome amp, till you have to move it! :)

btw.

have you noticed the surround sound reverb yet?

Stand in front of the amp in the middle of it, face the amp, play a bit, you will swear some of the sound comes from behind you. one of the wildest things I ever heard from a stock builtin reverb tank.
