    I'm really indecisive, apparently. Once again selling my 2017 Friedman Butterslax Bill Kelliher signature model; it's an absolutely brutal testament to Dave Friedman's skills. This is an early run model signed by Bill. Despite being advertised as an end-all-be-all of heavy metal amps (and it delivers, I assure you), channel 1 is capable of some beautiful cleans and a wonderful light crunch sound. Channel 2 is the Friedman special: pure, fully articulated and dynamic distortion with a definitive character that's unlike anything else around. Channel 3 is cosmic darkness in audio form - a crushing wall of sound with searing leads.

    I am the original owner and this amp has never been used outside a studio environment (smoke free house, etc.), with the exception of by Bill Kelliher during a clinic at Stang Guitars last year. It had a power tube failure in 2019, said tubes were professionally replaced with JJs (which I consider a large improvement). The only blemish is a small mark in the tolex on the lower rear left side of the chassis, blended in with black ink (last photo).

    Fairly firm on price, though I consider sensible offers. Trades-wise I'm open to Blackhawk and Science amps, mostly. It will ship in its original box with the original footswitch / cable and be certified bombproof. More photos available at the Reverb link.

    @AesopRick Thanks for the offer, not overly into the Cali though.
