    The PRS headstock looks really bad on a Strat.

    I have to say, it pretty much did it for me.

    Gas is an awful lot like a gift that keeps on giving.

    GC has a Hiwatt combo that I REALLY want. I'm not willing to pay $2K for it.

    N, I bought three SS amps this year. Sunn Stinger, Rickenbacker<Gem> TR 30 and an Osbourne Stinger. Two Stingers! SS is perfect. Al these years paying big $ for tubers, silly Billy. My Strat w/ a FUZZ through a $200 SS KILLS ..........many guitarists shake their heads---how? I carry my rig alone-in one trip. I plug in- BEST tone of the night as their tubes fitz away. The Osborne has a built in filter-from Iommi to Shaft in seconds.

    My first amp was an Osbourne Stinger! I had it more than 20 years.

    That's a really good way of putting it.

    GAS is a fucking nightmare when you have one guitar and absolutely zero budget for anything else.

    I said the same thing when I read your post. Someone else has one???

    When I bought my first guitar in 1981 my dad then offered to buy me an amp for it. The sales guy recommended it to us, and we said ok. I sold it around 2004 or 2005. I've had regrets about it though. I had gotten a Johnson J Station modeler thing with a lot of different amp emulations so I had thought maybe that was better? It had software to record with too.

    But, then I missed not having a real amp.

    R, never heard of one. Made by jazz guitarist Mary Osborne and husband.

    I thought it was odd that I bought two Stinger amps in 3 months. The SUNN is a LOUD PIG w/ a master vol. I must be blessed-EVERY piece of equipment I buy shines. Many times I don't even try them out.

    Your pic tonight is only the second one I've ever seen. At the time I got it, I didn't know anything about it, but then I didn't know anything yet about playing guitar. I just knew I wanted to, and bought a chintzy strat copy because I thought strats were sexy looking. The guitar turned out to be a POS, and I got my first Gibson 2 years later.

    But, I kept the amp a long time and wish I still had it. It was only a few years ago that I learned it was made by Mary Osborne because I looked it up on the internet.

    Way back in 81 though all I knew is I couldn't afford a Fender or a Marshall :) And beginner guitars were really crummy. And there was no internet to research anything. No one in my family played so I just had to start somewhere.

    Currently living this nightmare.. just missed what may have been the best steal of a deal I’ve ever seen on CL.

    Guy was obviously in the service, getting ready for deployment overseas, selling his guitar setup, all perfectly mint:

    Fender American standard Strat and a 40 watt tweed blues deluxe combo, everything for $500.. called him, it was sold.. somebody STOLE that sweet little setup.

    R, they had one for sale a month ago. I almost bought it to run them in stereo. I paid $225 for mine. You can't buy a cheesteak and fries for that. I will PM you if I find another. This one I saw was in Texas. Anybody know where R can find an Osborne.....not an Ozzy.

    New I want to say that amp was around $120. I should remember because I had to pay my dad back, lol! I would have to look at an inflation calculator to know what that is in today's money. I've never seen one on CL. Mine was in really good condition too like yours. I remember it being really heavy. I swear it was heavier than my DSL40c that I have now is. Is it really heavy or is my memory fuzzy on that?
