I walked into my local guitar shop today (Ax in Hand, in DeKalb, IL.) looking to buy a Fender Mustang III. I preceeded to ask the exremely nice owner about the Mustang, and he said they would be getting a shipment in in about roughly three weeks time. I said okay, and started to chat with the guy. We were shooting the breeze for a few, and I began to walk around the extremely small shop. They are always getting in really cool used gear of all kinds, and as I walked around, I noticed a what I thought was a Fender Bassman '59 (wasn't sure if it was a reissue or the original, since it looked fairly weathered, so I bent in for a closer look) and it turned out to be Peavy's carbon copy of the Bassman, the Classic 50. I asked the owner how much he was selling it for, and then he dropped the bomb on me...he was looking for $400 for it! Now, the guy told me it was roughly 10-15 years old, but the fact that they sell for a grand, new, these days, I thought $400 was really good, especially since he just replaced the tubes with all new JJ's...needless to say, I grabbed it while I had the chance, and now the proud owner of an early 90's (give or take) Peavey Classic 50, which is also my first tube amp. I'm completely in love! Here's the first picture I took, hope you like it!
