Aaagh, for years I've been holding off buying a Princeton Reverb Reissue, because I was convinced I'd find one used, and thought it was ridiculous Fender was and is charging what they do, for this amp (now about $899). So I bought and sold a bunch of other amps: used Blues DeVille (bought in the late 90's from a co-worker for $300, and sold it for $500 -- only time I've ever done 'ok'), a used ProJr, a used Rivera R30 (nice!), a used Classic 30, a VibroChampXD, *another* used Classic 30....Not exactly 'wasting' money, but never being really happy, either. And finally two days ago, when I had a 20%-off 'today only' coupon in the mail, a PRRI. Damn thing sounds so sweet with a Telecaster, brings a tear to my eye. Now I just need to find some kind of OD pedal. Sometimes things are just expensive because they're worth it, I guess.
