    Had a rough life, make a good wall hanger in a bad bar with poor lighting.

    Looks and sounds like hammered detritus, low-output with an annoying nasal whine in the mid-range.

    A few years ago, I was in Willie's American Guitars in St. Paul. A guy came in looking for a T-Shirt for his girlfriend. The clerk asked him what size, and he thought for a minute and said, Well, she used to wear a small, but as we say in the guitar world, now she's got some "non-original parts", so give me a large.:p

    Joe and John were identical twins. Joe owned an old dilapidated boat and kept pretty much to himself. One day he rented out his boat to a group of out-of-staters who ended up sinking it. He spent all day trying to salvage as much stuff as he could from the sunken vessel and was out of touch all that day and most of the evening. Unknown to him, his brother John's wife had died suddenly in his absence.

    When he got back on shore he went into town to pick up a few things at the grocery store. A kind old woman there mistook him for John and said, "I'm so sorry for your loss. You must feel terrible."

    Joe, thinking she was talking about his boat said, "Hell no! Fact is, I'm sort of glad to be rid of her. She was a rotten old thing from the beginning. Her bottom was all shriveled up and she smelled like old dead fish. She had a bad crack in the back and a pretty big hole in the front too. Every time I used her, her hole got bigger and she leaked like crazy."

    "I guess what finally finished her off was when I rented her to those four guys looking for a good time. I warned them that she wasn't very good and that she smelled bad. But they wanted her anyway. The damn fools tried to get in her all at one time and she split right up the middle." The old woman fainted.

    After the first paragraph, with the complicated setup, I knew I should stop reading, but just couldn't.

    Does it float both ways, or does it "dive only".

    Ah, we could keep this going all week...

    1962 vintage, yet somehow it's still outgassing?

    Tuners a little loose. Faded finish on top, wrinkles elsewhere. Somewhat jumbo. Rather battle scarred, creaks when played with. Mostly complete. Wiggle stick included, but rarely used.

    One or two ripped speakers, tolex somewhat frayed at the edges, couple of blown capacitors, but the tubes can still get smoking hot when required.
