    I would just go down the dealer list on Greg's website. I doubt you'll find any deep discounts no mater who you chose. Finding one in stock will be the trick.

    Stu at Fat Sound Guitars is legendary for his service, and deservedly so. I just did buy a Swart from Fat Sound and the service was exceptional. When I get a Club 40 later this year, I'll be buying from Stu.

    I'm at Fatsound every Friday afternoon working on my chops with Mike Krause. I know for sure Stu had an purple Classic 45 with a matching 2x12 but I didn't see a club 40. If I were you I would deffently deal with Fatsound if you are going to buy new. IMO they are top dogs in customer satisfaction catagory:AOK

    I've had great experiences with Tonemerchants. Great service, fair price, easy to work with, etc... everything you could wish for in a dealer.

    Stu at Fatsound. Great dude & where else can you be hangin' out, while Greg drives up to deliver a few combos, then test-drive a Historic SG thru 'em & give you a demo of what his amps'll do.

    Seriously, Stu is great to deal with.

    Yes, Fat Sound has the advantage of being in the same area as Greg Germino, so the only shipping the amp will ever see is from Fat Sound to the buyer.

    Very True, as Greg hand delivers them to Stu. Stu is great to deal with, and has very good pricing as well.

    Greg used to work at the shop in WV. I think he may have started his proto-types here - don't quote me on that. I am pretty sure he got a good bit of very useful information from one of the local techs in the area - who's fantastic.

    Roe, you are correct. Once he left Mojo he worked at the Music Center in Bridgeport, WV - aka APlus Guitars.

    Know what's funny? Stu is a MONSTER player. I once traded a LP Classic toward McRW. Stu plugged my (former) LP into Maz Jr via Fulldrive2 & not only did that guitar give up tones I'd never gotten from it, but his chops made me wanna quit playing, in shame. Dude can rip & is super, super nice cat.

    Big thumbs up for Stu & crew.
