    If I was out that way I would be looking at how I can get a spare $500 together to get that H&K--I love those amps...

    Although the Vox amps are nice too--

    I think buying new is the best way for me to go. I'm getting what I really want, and I don't have to worry about buying something that will need immediate repairs..

    I still haven't bought an amp yet...decided to wait til tomorrow and try out a few before making a decision...taking my '62 Tele, LP custom, and PRS Custom 22...I play everything from Country, blues, rock, and metal, so I'm wanting a versatile amp.
    The amp guy said a Traynor YGL1 might be the best choice...has a preamp switch for USA, British, and a classic bypass..
