My first electric rig was in 1969. Sears Silvertone amp and a Sekova '335' thinline. The amp had a killer reverb that would shake the house if you bumped it. Like a bomb going off! I still have the Sekova, the Harmony Stella I started with, as well as the '68 Princeton (sans reverb) that replaced the Sears. (Dad learned his lesson from the Sears reverb!) The used Princeton was a whopping $20! If I knew how to post photos I'd put some up.
