    One for the stoner kids...

    I walked into my local Fairbanks, AK (aka bumfuk nowhere) guitar store wearing a sunn hoodie, and the guy asks if I'm into sunn amps. I say yes, I would be if I could afford to be. From under the workbench he pulls this dusty ass thing, told me it'd been there a year and a half and they didn't think it worked. Turns out, the speaker jack just wasn't plugged in.

    He wanted it gone I guess, cause I went in prepared to offer $350 (which I thought was still low) on the combo and before I could even get my offer out he quoted me $200 for the whole shebang. Some scratchy pots and a spider eggs, and I had to re-set a few screws to stabilize the combo cabinet, but it shakes walls.

    Vacuumed the guts out, cleaned the knobs, scrubbed the faceplate, and took a deckbrush to the tolex and it's looking pretty darn handsome!

    Good score. The spider eggs are there to enhance the tone, don't remove them!

    HNAD. I had a friend who owned one of these like 5 years ago. I've stood next to a C-130 before, and the Beta Lead is still the loudest thing I've ever heard in my life. This is super dope

    Flashback flashback flashback..
    Ok, I never had this kit, but just the name is enough to flash back to my Sunn Model T - and the two DIY rear-folded horns with Utah 15" speakers in 'em.

    Anyways, 250 sounds like a damn good price to me. Congrats! :yesway:
