Amps like the super reverb are going to become popular again now that youtubers like Chris Buck and the like are latching onto amps like the Concert... could be a nice wee investment?

Oooo.... Intriguing! I know he used to have some pro looking photos of himself up on the wall behind the counter. I wonder if he wrote one absolutely awful number 1 hit ( that he'd never admit to) and still lives off the royalties?!
It's possible. He's actually a monster player when he can be bothered.
Maybe we should do a 'Speculation of Ed Pausmas passive income ' thread? Could be a lot of fun. I'd put forward that he was gun running in the 80s for a band of political rebels in South America.
He was previously based on KRoad and earned his wealth from giving hand relief in the back of cars.

Seriously though folks, he worked at the then Mainline Music(Takapuna) for a few years back in the '90s with Frank John and Alan Lavis, a monster player as are the other two guys, possesses a good dry sense of humour, loves his gear and it's hard to prize it from him. Has a wealth of knowledge about guitars that are around the country, a very interesting man to talk with, has dealt with luminaries in his time.
Doin' that scrapyard thing.

Frank moved to New Plymouth. He's spending more time away from the store these days.
