    Guitars are getting cheaper, thanks to the Chinese getting better, and the Koreans working hard to compete, but this is the first time I've seen a 335 with a Bigsby for anywhere less than $400, ever... and it's a darn good guitar to boot! I don't expect to get much resale value out of it in the future, because there are so many "headstock snobs" and "made in USA" snobs out there... and those that aren't often just buy new... But when I buy a guitar, it's usually with the intention to keep it until it's destroyed, it's stolen, or I die, whichever comes first. If I lost it somehow, I'd try to replace it, if I could find another at such a great deal... But I'd probably give up and simply cry, then save up my money for a vintage 335 to take the pain away.
  2. This puppy is changing the rules of guitar amplification. In a market stuffed with powerful solid-state amps trying to simulate the tube-sound "holy grail", an amp which barely costs more than a hundred bucks offers the real thing, at a volume level which you can use in any situation. The one thing I wish existed is a 1x12 or 2x12 combo cab with this head built in. (They actually build it in to the Epiphone LP gift pack, but only with a puny 8" speaker). This head plus the matching 1x12 speaker cab makes a pretty sweet "mini stack", but it would be nice to be able to take a set-up like that to gigs without lugging two separate boxes around. Then again, knowing that I can build any kind of "frankenstein stack" I want with this head is probably worth the hassle, so maybe I take that wish back a little. This amp fits nicely in the class between "practice amp" and "wall of Marshalls". It can't replace either of those solutions, but for what it is, it's pretty darn near perfect.
