First, Saturday night my dad played with some of his old buddies at a party. The guy on acoustic and bass were in his band 100 Proof, which he gigged with for about 15 years. This is the third time they've played together in 15 years.

They generally play old timey rock'n roll. Think CCR, Buddy Holly, Skynyrd, old Springsteen, etc.

My dad has a 1969 Fender Super Reverb 4x10 just sitting at his house, not more than a 5m drive from this other guy's place. So, what does he play his pre-CBS Telecaster through? The $95 Crate 15X that he bought for me when I went to college.

Sunday afternoon. Anyone have one of these?

Well, I bought one, and it never worked. So, since we were having one of these...

I decided to sacrifice it.
