Heh heh, man, they kept it in customs for a month. I forgot to take pics when it arrived, sorry. Just gave it a short test before it went to my amp tech. Sounds very promising both with Fender style guitars as with LPs. I expect to get it back in 3 weeks, he's waiting for some parts. It still got some original tubes, very nice. If I'm going you more than welcome to join me :D

My friend is gassing for a Magnatone. After I showed him the pics you posted here, it got worse. :D So if you ever get tired of it, contact me.

Hi all, I know you're all itching to meet up again and I also know that everytime you try plan a southern get-together it ends up in Leeds. Well I won't be able to do another one at Leeds this year as I've had a few health problems this year (Understatement of the Year).

I just got out of hospital tonight after day surgery for hernia, damn that Fender Pro Reverb the so called mini Twin :evil: . I've substituted that with a more ladylike Fender Mustang I amp :lol:

This all comes after beating lung cancer this year thanks to NHS and winning my past battle with leukaemia. Wife just said to me now "Well you just look normal" but truth is I am feeling like after been kicked in the goolies by a horse :oops:

If someone can get another one arranged I will try my best to attend. Good luck
