    That is no nightmare to me! I already have 6 vintage Ampegs so if they started appreciating I certainly don't lose out. And most of them were fairly cheap too.

    you say that now but when that (fill in that one ampeg that has alluded you here) finally surfaces and is going for real money then you'll groan. also if they were to become popular then some of that "cool" factor would be lost cus we all know when you collect something everyone else doesn't and suddenly it becomes fashionable then it ain't as cool.

    oh I don't know. I'm not a glutton- I don't need 20 amps. I just buy if I see something really cool and the price looks right. My Ampegs are all different sizes and power ratings too- 12W, 18W, 30W, 35W, 50W and 100W. From a size perspective there really aren't many gaps left. I'm kind of at the point now where I'd only buy something that is really very rare and different unless something was absolutely ridiculously cheap. The next buy won't be an amp for sure.

    That said- I do have a pending NAD coming but I am waiting for it to come back from the shop before I make any announcements as it was slightly damaged in transit cross country.

    I guess I'm a Peavey collector then. I have 2 Peavey bass amps, 2 guitars and 1 bass.
    I don't play guitar because I'm good at it, I play because it's fun!!

    Here is my outing: I'm a collector! I started collecting Beatles stuff when I was 13 or 14. The arsenal of Beatles music is huge meanwhile. One fact almost drives me crazy:
    I've got about 850 mb of Beatles video material on an external HDD. When I stored everything to it, the HDD was just 5 months old. Four days later the disk crashed. Nothing mechanical, no headcrash, but a serious software problem.
    As I found out on the net several series of Seagate HDs had that issue. They simply quit work. I contacted Seagate who agreed to repair it but without saving the data. A local specialist had a look at it and failed, too. The hardware is as new, the software is the problem. I could send it in for data recovery onto a new HDD, but the prices are horrible: They start at 900 for a 250 gb HDD. Mine has 1 tb. And success not guaranteed. Now my collection is in the cupboard waiting for better times.
