Good deal LOL.
I bought that thing last summer up in Powell River BC for $600. It had these massive MS-12 Black Shadows in it, like these were the heaviest speakers I've ever seen. We needed a forklift to get the amp into the back of my truck. I scored a pair of JBL's a few weeks later from Randy Bachman's guitar tech. Came out of his BF Twin he bought new in the 60's. He grew up in the Canadian prairies and his dad had the only Fender dealership for 1000 miles. But these days the amp with those speakers is just too heavy for him so he parted with his beloved D120F's.
Reading about RUkind folks' projects I got inspired to build a couple of HT style cabs, one for the MS-12's which were really nice speakers in their own right and one for the JBL's. A few weeks later a guy on CL wanted to trade a PRS Torero for a 2x12 cab and suddenly the twin seemed to be paying its own way. That SDS-1 you sent me is going in the Torero as we speak BTW.
So then I became disillusioned with the 100 watts thing and bought an Fractal Ultra and slowly got myself weaned off the twin. It was a terrific amp, but no competition for modern technology. The Ultra through the JBL cab was no match for it. Just gave me more of a BF sound and I didn't have to wear ear plugs and go to the chiropractor after every gig.
So I put the amp on CL for a trade. I had a fender special design speaker that came out of my Blues Deluxe (which also has a JBL in it now) and bought a second speaker, so I've got all of a few hundred dollars in the twin and along comes this trade within hours of posting it. Most SF twins on Vancouver's CL don't sell and if they do its for $600-$700.
The one thing about that stratocatser is I'd never find the thing used. It found me. To make the story come full circle, Jav, the guy who I did a trade with is an old time player and wanted the twin because he's taking an amp rebuilding course with Randy Bachman's tech and will rebuild the amp from the ground up under Wayne's supervision.
So not only did the amp give me two really great guitars it connected with me too some really knowledgable folks in Vancouver.
And Wayne is a musical treasure. He's kept a scrap book for every project he's done for Randy Bauchman, and Randy's collection of historical vintage amps is unbelievable.
