    The way I remember it is that Mike worked for some Government agency and building amps was his side hustle, and then it seemed to take off, and then insert classic SSo_Org story.

    Guy takes money to build promised expensive items, guy build 1 or two items and strings rest of the people along, guy takes large order from someone to the tune of 11 amps and cabs, guy realizes this is going to take too much time and money and disappears, probably claiming he had a "mental breakdown"

    sound familiar?

    Anyhow, I feel bad of course for all the people who lost a lot of money, Especially Sam.

    Good luck to the OP finding one of these.

    That would be a great super-boutique guitar and amp line name.

    When my company folds and I lose my retirement/pension that's going to be the name of the Blackmachine copy I sell you suckers on before skipping out to Barbados to live like a king on pre-order cash.

    I think there were only like 6 or 8 made. IIRC, I heard Frederick doesn’t even have one.

    Edit-talking specifically of the FBM signature amp. Dunno about the others

    I'm pretty sure Perry Ormsby has one. I think Pat Sheridan did at one point too. I know when I talked to him back in the day he was trying to hype me on DAR and Bernie Rico Jr. He's with Mesa now though so if he did get one I don't know that he'd have held on to it.

    Fredrik doesn't have one. He had a prototype that I think got sent back to DAR, and then it all happened.

    Good luck. I saw one sell this year but it was a Forza and it was sold amongst a group of friends.

    These are pretty much impossible to obtain and if you see a random one for sale it will be an absurd price.

    Would be super awesome to find one but yeah, there aren't too many out there.
