(1) When in the 1960s-1970s was the Kustom Kasino Little Joe half stack offered new in the stores , and at what price ? (2) Does anyone have a close up clear photo of the knobs on the amp head ? (3) Were the speakers ceramic or alnico ? My first amp was a Kustom Kasino Little Joe 4x12 half stack bought used in 1977. Transistor amp with supposedly 125 watts. In my small hamlet of America used equipment was few and far between , and new equipment too expensive to afford. The Little Joe was big size and seemed loud , so I bought it from a local guitar hero a few years older than me. Local stores had small Fender amps which were small, only one speaker, and not as loud. Little Joe seemed the better choice ( bigger ! ) and was often used by me in my first bands. The size looked great playing live on stage.
