Damn, i decided I want that Epiphone SG, only to discover it is a dredge thread. I’ll call dibs in case it is still in the family somewhere.
Things move slowly in my world, and I don't like listing on tardme or bookface, so it is still available.

I did the same over the Marshall. :oops:
Yeah, I was ready to sell a year ago. Now I'm a bit on the fence (sorry?) Maybe I need to edit the post. Have used at a couple of practices in the last few weeks and it sounds sublime, but then I know it can be a tricky amp to gig with - has a real sweet spot which is too loud for some venues, and too quiet for others.

Gigging on Saturday, so might be back on the market if the gig goes badly.

Sounds like you and Molly need to sort something out between the 1974x and Fryette PS2. Should let you dial in the sweet spot anywhere.

That's the problem with 15-18 watts aye. I had the same issue with my Ceriatone 18W head into a 25W greenback. Sounded great in a band situation when its cooking, but then sometimes the compression and lack of headroom can be really frustrating as well. No dynamics.
Nothing to see here.

Ok, I'll take the Epi please! I have owned two Gibson SGs that never really stuck with me. But that was a while ago, and I'm just a huge fan of Derek Trucks right now, so maybe this will scratch the itch.

I'm the same on selling, I don't really ever seem to put my heart into it.

Maybe we should organise a Swap Meet?

Sound fun!

Will put your name on the SG, and see when we can catch up.

Straight traded my Fryette for a minty Fender 68 Custom combo. Very happy I did.

Just in from an hour with my amps. Between the half-stack TSL and above combo I think I'm pretty happy. Some boutique goodness to list tonight.

Crikey. I really want that 1974X, why does this always happen when I have no money?

Don’t sell the 1974x James...my advice x 4 actual amps.

Cheers Grant.

Yeah this thread is coming up on its first birthday, little out of date now.

Sold a couple of things this week from it though, so I’m not ungrateful for the dredge.

Anyway, the Marshall gets a pass through to the next shiny thing I see.

P.s. @Molly, good you’re enjoying the TSL. I had mine for about 10years and plenty of gigs. Was a good sounding reliable and versatile amp. Put a hotcake into the clean channel. Mostly the left dial, just a little of the right one, that was my go-to.
