    How about these two? This '58 Duo Jet and matching Jet amp just came in to TrueTone for appraisal. And maybe for sale, but that hasn't been determined yet. They're now owned by the grandson of the original owner (who bought them new in 1958). They're in incredible condition, and though I didn't get to plug in the Jet, it played very well as it was, and was about as light as my RoundUp. If and when they go up for sale, I won't get in anyone's way because I suspect I won't be able to afford them. I should've looked this good at 60 years old.

    I'm not the appraiser, I'm just friends with him. I'll keep you apprised of what it's appraised for and whether it goes up for sale.
