I’ve been lusting after one of these babies for more than 30 years, ever since hearing its close cousin, a V-2 with a matching 4x12 at a local music store in 1975, saying to myself “self, that’s great tone”, but a wanting a more portable version. I was outbid on one on EBAY on Christmas Day, then one appeared locally at Lark Street Music last week (http://www.larkstreetmusic.com/list/pict/Vt40.jpg), but they’re asking too much considering its condition and the consignment seller wouldn’t budge on price. Saw this one ( http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7395405634&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT&rd=1 )on Ebay this morning (I had spoken to the owner about it last week after seeing his HC ad, but he had no pics at the time), and went for the BIN option instantly. Looks to be in great operating condition with newer tubes, recent Jensens replacing the original speakers, and a three-prong cord (none of which the Lark Street one had). A jam scheduled a week from this Saturday with some brethren from the TDPRI will be the perfect testing ground. More to come once received……..
