Back in 1977 , what new / used guitar amps ( combo, or head plus speakers) could have been bought with 400 dollars hard earned in those days ? Although primarily about Fender please comment on other brands as well. The time period would be a new or used purchase between 1977 to 1980. I grew up in a small town with little selection of new or used amps, and internet sources (eBay, Gear Page Emporium, CraigsList, etc) certainly did not exist anywhere. As my first amp in 1977 as a teenager I came across an excellent condition used Kustom Kasino Little Joe transistor head with 4X12 cabinet ---- a large size rig to look good , loud, a lot of knobs, previously owned by a local guitar hero, and best of all was the size was in the spirit of many rock stars' large concert stacks of the era. Over the years I have always wondered what else I could have bought with the hard earned money as my first amp if having a better selection of amps and some experienced advice.
