.....I almost cashed it all in. I was running around town which I seldom do anymore and I made a pitstop at one of my guitarshop haunts. There were several original GA5 LP jr amps there and I was eyeing up an early blackface Princeton then my eyes caught the Ampeg SVT-CL and I was selling off my gear in my head to try to get this. It was a very insane moment but I got over it eventually. I was itemizing what I could get for everything and there would have been plenty left over. I'm not quite sure what I would do with a 300 watt tube bass amp with an 8x10 cabinet but for several hours there I was willing to find out!
