Yeah, getting old certainly gets in the way, LOL! I don't play as much as I used to. My mom had cancer, so I sold everything I had as far as music gear, and came to NH to take care of her. During that time I don't think I played at all, which was several years. She has passed on, and I used some of the little money I got to buy my Les Paul...first one I have ever owned, and I had a wanted one my whole life. Buying other PA gear for the band, and mics always took priority over my own guitar rig needs/wants. I ran the serial number on the guitar when I got it home, and it turned out to be her death date!! So, I consider it a last gift from her. She knew I always wanted one. I could never sell it. Some times it's worth having things around, so when you do get to missing them, you can pull em out, and have some fun. This forum is full of guys like us. That don't gig anymore, have families, and other responsibilities.
It's a fantastic amp, and that cabinet with the black backs is awesome too. I love the 6550's in Marshall amps. I hope you do well. Unfortunately, I can't afford anything like that. Plus it's a bit impractical for me. I would love to own one just to have it though, but I just don't have the money to spend on something like that. I have been unemployed for a while, so.... If you can, I would hang on to it. Even if you only play it once a year, it would be worth it.
Hey man. One time you post that your guitar hass a finish flaw. But the image has been removed. Can you show me tuhis image? I have an epiphone, and seems that it have a finish flaw too, but I do not see when I buyed it. And I don't know for sure what causes that. Maybe humidity. Thanks.
