I have an image of a few dozen parts following you home in a parade (or second line?) and then self-assembling in your living room. I pretty sure I'm slightly off. What's the real story?

More story ? Was it a good deal? What are these worth usually. ? I'd love a Marshall with trem.
Deal was…ok.
The kits go from $510USD with nothing (no glass,cab or speaker) to $1350USD fully assembled. Plus shipping,tax, yada -yada.
So, yeah, less than half that CAD is a good deal.

When I was a kid about 6, there was this pup down near the local park. It was crying & dirty & looked like it needed a good dinner.
With the help of a few peanut butter crusts I had jammed in my pocket, she "followed me home"
We tried the whole ad in the local paper, posters & the likes. (Pre-internet & no pound in our town)
So, "Wednesday" became my best friend for many years.
So the joke always was with me, "Did it follow you home?"

Very nice! Hows it sound?
Great amp! Hows that ET 65 speaker in it?
Well, today is the day.
I will get some time this afternoon to put it thru it's paces. And record some stuff.
From the quick demo it was tight, not too top-end heavy, but had that "Alright Now" Kossoff grunt.
Turned it up to half way to give the tubes a bit of life, for a 112 combo, peeled the paint off the walls in a good way.
The selling point was the weight.
Light. (Will weigh it, but easy one hander)

Oh, I've heard the term many times, and often regarding musical instruments. It's happened to me as well (hey, sometimes a deal is just too damn good to say No to. And credit cards are the devil's spawn - or would that be splawn?).

It was more the 'kit' aspect that I was referring to, but I knew what you meant. I just thought entropy was against you. They are far more likely to disassemble themselves than the opposite.

Now go and crank it up. :D

"It followed me home"

That happens to me all the time. I think they can smell the other amps on me and know they'll get a lot of love at my place.
