The Lab Series amplifiers were made by (or for) Gibson back in the 1970s. They were solid-state amps that, oddly enough for a guitar amplifier, had a built-in compressor. They were well-made and a favorite of B.B. King for many years. I don't recall them ever making a bass amp, but they might have.

If you are looking for a solid-state guitar amp and it is in good condition (I presume it is the 2x12 L5 combo), 80 GBP is a bit steep IMO. You could probably haggle it down a bit.

So im taking it they where a good brand?
Il see if i can get it down abit, but over all its an alright deal?

Yes, they were a good brand. But that amplifier is going to be old, so make sure it is in good shape. And as I said before, I don't know that Lab Series ever made a bass amp, so you won't be able to use it for bass without frying the speakers.
