    ...and it's on the way to California now.

    Guess what it is...pictures on Friday after the arrival!

    A Silvertone that looks like a guitar case? Missing the guitar? A Monoprice 15 watt ankle bitter?
    I can't think of anything else that comes close to silly.

    I owned one in the 90s (reissue), and sadly sold it when hitting rock bottom to make the rent.

    If it's a Gibson GA-40 from the years 56-58, it is MINE!

    Depending on how old it is, and when the last time it was used, give it a good inspection before firing it up. Old capacitors are notorious for leaking and/or drying up. The cones on old speakers can become very brittle: Mainly the suspension area between the diaphragm and the frame. A blast of compressed air can tear those old speakers apart. Don't ask me how I know this... :BH:
