    just got this amp from a friend who bought another amp and didn't need or want this one. I bought it for $10, and it is loud as hell. He was going to throw it away because it is old and he didn't need it and the store probably wouldn’t' buy it because it has a chunk missing out of the side of it. It is still in pretty good working condition (worth way more than $10, but he is a pretty good friend, and I'm a good negotiator, talked him down from $50) Any way I could tell you more about how I got it so cheap but I wont. Anyway I need some info on this amp, I just want to know what year and stuff. It has two giant magnets behind the speakers or something and it is heavy as hell. The serial number is G-02782.

    I used to have that same model - it's from 1982 - it was heavy as fuck but it had a good loud clean sound and the overdrive channel was cool too, but I just used an MXR pedal and it sounded great. I wish I still had it.
