Back in Black

Have to wonder how much more popular the Astoria would have been if they had made them like this in the first place when launched.

Great look, great price, great amp.

I guy had one of these in San Diego he was selling on craigslist. I went and checked it out it sounded awesome. It just had way too much gain for me. More gain then I would ever use.
I agree with the black looking better. Chicago Music exchange had a special one made that looked even better I will try and see If I can pull it up and post it.

I agree with the black looking better. Chicago Music exchange has this one on reverb that I think is the way they should have all been made. I think this looks awesome.

That amps look great. The big problem with them down here is the price point. The heads are retailing for over $3k+AUD and the cabs at around $1k AUD
