you JUST KNOW some Tory wanker has thought of this idea already. Probably getting the inspiration whilst fucking a dead pig.

$399 for a Greenback on Trademe, thats just nuts, only 85 Quid in the UK.
Indeed I often wonder where Norman is now. Probably wintering with his mother in Guildford. A cat, rain, Vim under the sink, and both bars on. But old now, there is no true beauty without decay.

I emailed our local New Plymouth Rockshop manager and asked if they still supply Celestions. Also said we're a bit annoyed on here about the Tard prices.
This was his response..

"... Yep, we still are, we generally sell Celestion speakers, for between $ 299 and $ 449, depending on size and model,

We have quite good stock levels in our warehouse in Auckland, any particular ones you’re interested in?..."

Take what you will from that. But looking at that price range, pretty similar to what TM has them at. A 70/80 is probably $299 lol

Are you planning to follow up and see what they can do?

Ordered a pair of CL80s. Have this idea to try to replicate the 3rd Power cab MBritt uses for a lot of his profiles.

Plenty of time on my hands....
