Just wanted to express my opinion on my Peavey Bandit 65 solid-state guitar amp. I have two of them and love them both. They are very solid and dependable. I have never had any problems with them. I have a collection of mid 80s solid-state peavey guitar amps, 2- bandit 65s and 2 special 130s and plan on buying any mid 80s peavey amps I can get good deals on. I generally replace the scorpions with eminence speakers right away, and that's about all I have to do to make them gig-ready. When I aquire them I strip them down to bare-bones and start scrubbin the 20+ years of bar grunge off them until they look mint. And also, while I have the chassis out I spray the pots from the inside with a good tuner cleaner.The sound quality of the mid 80s stuff is warmer than the later years in my opinion, and with a good tube pre-amp pedal,such as the electro-harmonix 2 LPB stereo tube preamp, you can really get some great tone. Anyway, these are great,dependable amps for the budget-minded, hard-working musician!!!..Johnny Banjo
