Umm why don't you go for something more than 5 watts (and most likely because its an online store they will send it from the warehouse)
I don't read, I look at words and absorb their meanings.
If the pit was a group of people hangin out we would be possibly the most awsome group of people to be known to mankind.........I think it would be on the news
It'll be from a warehouse, I mean stores that have them on the shop floor usually keep them there until the supply runs out and sale floor models at a reduced price since they've been opened.

I really don't see the problem with buying a 5 watt head if it sounds good and he doesn't need volume. I mean tube 5 watts is enough to piss people off but probably not play with a band but still. I say go for it if you don't need to be playing with a band.
Stock Gibson Pickups from a 2005 V, I think they're a 498T and 500T set FS/FT

Looking for: an acoustic, recording gear, or $
