Speaking of someone swearing off any new gear in 2020, it only took me 6 days. Yup, I bought a Crate TX50TD Limo for my future solo gig sets that I am working on. It is an old USA model that looks in great shape and sounds equally well. My Epi EL-00 Pro sounds fantastic on it. The seller was a shredder and tested it out with one of those PRS pointy things. He's not even a dentist. Mic input is very impressive. At 50 watts, it is very loud which will really help for outside gigs. Electrics sound great and even my new Roland stomp box. The battery works, but he warned me that it was due for replacement. Both cords for 110 and 12VDC, so living off the grid, I have three options. With a mic, I can sound like I'm in a cathedral, while inside my tiny studio. Anyway, thank yous go out to @BB , @LGOberean , and a special thanks to Tom for reaching out through a PM. All of you gave me excellent advice and so I already knew a lot when meeting this CL person and testing the amp.
