Since we pretty much finished with our hurricane prep earlier today, and I knew of a few gas stations with plenty of fuel, I decided to go around for a drive. My searches on Craigslist told me that used guitar gear in Orlando is usually more varied, higher quality, and cheaper than in Miami.

I decided to hit up a few pawn shops and a used instrument store. I saw a few unfinished MJT partscasters hanging up at the pawn shops (finally got a splinter from a guitar neck), and a Gibson LP Studio I deduced to be a replica... but otherwise, just a ton of crap gear.

Then I arrived at Blackbird Vintage Music, who is specialized in vintage & used gear. They were already boarding up for the storm when I walked in, and most of the gear was put away. However there had a few amps still out. There was a Vox VT Combo, a SEEEEEXY (and way out of budget) 1970s Marshall Bluesbreaker, and this: a 1970s Traynor Studio Mate YGM-4.

They had this amp listed on craigslist and GBase, and I was curious about it since before I entered. Well... after a quick test, the grin on my face was huge, and I bought it.

25 watts through 4x8" speakers. My research says that it's basically a Deluxe Reverb circuit with EL84 tubes. Tonally, it's right between Vox and Marshall, so it's a happy place for me. And it is loud as shit! Definitely loving it.

And now, pics:
