you caused me to double take. who asks about stuff like this here?

it's solid state, 150 watts. made by danolectro for sears. i have a fetish for these kinda amps (yes even SS ones), they are usually all head room and almost always like pedals (my 2 supros don't like pedals though, they don't even like humbuckers really).

i'd play it first though, it's an old ass amp. i am unsure if caps go bad on SS amps but it is an issue with tube ones. i own a 1968 acoustic 156, SS bass amp and it sounds great (i know that is not your amp, just wanna show that somewhat similar amps from that era still work).

i'd bring my guitar and pedals (and cab if you have one) and try it at dudes house before buying it. but i'd think you were one of the cool kids for getting one of these things, all taste man.

i knew the basic parts that it was a danelectro for sears and that it was a solid state i just didnt know if they were any good since all the silvertones that are popular are different models but thanks im going to check it out and make sure its working

Look for the 1472 or 1482 if you're looking for something tube driven. I just finished repairing a 1482 for a guy and with a little tweaking here and there, those things are awesome.
