Used to be these things were everywhere for sale, now I rarely see one. Did they all die, or are people just loving them?

I saw one recently but that is the only one I've seen in a while.

There were a couple of Epiphone amps available locally on Kijiji over the past couple of months. One was solid state, a couple of tube or tube hybrid. They are out there.

I got mine about a year ago at the local L&M , for a very reasonable price, with some nice Ei tubes in it. It is not modified, and stock appearing. It needs an EQ or quality boost pedal, like one of my Mesa Tonebursts, to enhance the cleans, and dramatically quite down an otherwise noisy amp. Otherwise, it sounds best dimed, using the guitar knobs.

@silvertonebetty , yes, that is my 1974 Bronco that I bought from a forum member in the Ottawa area. He was upfront about the condition of the amp, the questionable unknown mods, how it needed some TLC.
A price was agreed upon, and my friend lived pretty much across the street from the seller. My friend walked over, picked it up, brought it to me when he made it to Windsor for a visit. I had a very good tech straightened out that amp. I tried a few different speakers, and it’s an exceptionally good example now. You could gig with this one.

I used to like the looks of these ones too - if I remember correctly they made a 4x12 and a head.

Triggerman, is one of the amps that was available in the last month on the local Kijiji.

I am very amp heavy, and not actively looking for any. I do daily cruise through Kijiji to keep my mind fresh on asking prices, and what sells quickly.
