Mark is an amp pervert.

The dude from DHL arrived half an hour ago with my new Fender Champion 600, and it is spanky! It's cute, smells nice, and tactile- I can't keep my filthy mitts off its leathery tolex, or stop stroking its velvety grille. I may sleep with it tonight.
Such a big sound from such a little box, too. Absolutely knocks spots off the seventies Vibrochamp I used to own, which was a big disappointment. I'll just take a moment, also, to commend the dealer on an ultra-fast turnaround. I was thinking about shopping with them again soon.

Er, if it's not a dumb question (soundslive website is being a git) - how much was it? I am overladen with big amps and a nice loud little one is tempting...
The handsome family have a link to some crazy handmade amps on their website... If only...
I liked the pics of yr danelectro too, never played one... fender jag with humbuckers for me.
-insert positive noises about the blog and commiserations about holiday here : )-

Clearly my endorsement has broke their servers. It was £119, plus postage and packing.

The dano is quite capable of doing a fairly decent telecaster impersonation. The first Fender I owned was a '66 candy apple red Jazzmaster. I loved it. In fact, I'm sorry I ever sold it.
