I had thought that I might buy a 5E7 Bandmaster clone someday. I wasn't really in the market for another amp currently until this one showed up used at a nearby store at a price I could not pass up. Aside from the cost savings of buying used, it came with the advantage of having been made by a local amp builder, Bob Burriss. According to the label this one was made back in 2004, when he would have been still accepting custom orders as opposed to manufacturing a specified line of models (Royal Bluesman, Dirty Red, etc). It just arrived at the office and I haven't even had a chance to get it home and fire it up yet. It has three Eminence speakers: Ragin' Cajun, Ramrod, and Legend.
