I've been wanting an AC30 for a while. Fire years, my go to amp for band, duo and even solo gigs has been my AC15. For solo gigs, I've even used the other channel for vocals, which works surprisingly well! I was actually hoping to find the normal greenback version, since it sounds great in my AC15, and I don't necessarily need the extra volume from the alnico blues. Also, I often get to let my amps breathe, and I'm worried I might break them some day. But this amp turned up second hand for about 750$, so I grabbed it. I reckoned I could always sell the blues separately if I wanted to, but I'll give them a go until then. It looks to be in ok shape, with the tolex slightly beat up in places but otherwise all right. One downside is that the back panel is only held on with two screws. Apparently, the previous owner forgot to put back the other 15 odd screws last time time he opened it, and they've since disappeared. (BTW: anyone know where I can find the same screws and washers?) Also, one of the tube retainers seems to be missing. Otherwise, the only other disadvantage I see for now is the ridiculous weight, but I was expecting that. I've got some gigs coming up, I'm looking forward to seeing what it can do!
