    I've wanted a 5e3 for almost 10 years, clone or real deal. I checked craigslist for the helluvit, someone had a Lil Dawg 5e3 clone, for $750, open to trades... I told him what I had for trade, plus cash on my end or his depending on what he wanted of mine.... I gave him my Super Champ x2 plus $400. I think I got the slightly better deal, but real fair for both parties...

    I'm into 5e3 clone for $665 or something like that, including what i paid for the superchamp... For my dream amp..... Its amazing, it has a Eminence Maverick speaker, which has an attenuator.. Its amazing, everything about it. I've never played a 5e3 but its so awesome.. Here is a pic with my Tele.. Sorry, its not w/ my Gretsch.

    It's almost like they were meant to be used together.
    Go figure.

    It is always great when you get what you dreamed about in the end. Congrats.

    A friend of mine built a 5e3 clone some months ago and I can understand why it is one of the most beloved amps. As long as it is not metal you can do any kind of music with this little box.

    LOL, this was my second one.. Wouldn't surprise me if i end up w/another.

    Why did Fender ever stop putting tweed on their amps?! Stunning!
