I got one (5310 3x10) a few months ago for $150. It was a steal. I had to take out the circuit board a reflow some solder joints, but now it's working perfectly.

I think you are going to be happy. The cleans are great and the OD channel sounds good even though I mainly use pedals for that. It's a heavy mofo.

The last time I went in a pawn shop was to try a Jackson King V. The guy hooked me up to a bass amp. I left shortly after.

Electric guitars can work in a bass amp.

Hendrix used to do that

You sound like a tool, just throwing that out there.

Not everyone is a "guitar expert" and what did you expect from a pawn shop? That he was going to roll out a Diezel Herbert and a nice selection of cabs to match?

Ever heard of the Fender Bassman?

TS, read the rules about New Gear Day threads. This breaks all of them. No picture and no review. Pictures found online do not count as a NGD picture.

Anyways, happy new amp day!

I feel like I already posted this for some reason but it appears no..

There's an old LAB Series amp in a local shop here for £200. I really want to nab it before someone else does but I don't have the funds right now.

Any kind you want. Right now for distortion I've got a DOD FX100, EHX Germanuim 4, and a Jekyll & Hyde on the board. Not only that but my pedalboard is in the stomp box loop of my RP1000, which runs into the Crate. The Ibanez TS7 is a good OD that can be found on eBay for under $30.

Here's a pic of mine....

Yeah it doesn't take a guitar "expert" to know that most bass amps probably are.. uhh.. meant for bass, guy.
Besides, maybe a few bass amps work okay with guitar but this one sounded like complete ass. It was not compatible at all with a guitar.
I don't expect much from pawn shops but... if you don't have GUITAR AMP for a GUITAR... don't hook me up to a bass amp. It's pretty cute that you're sticking up for some greaseball pawn shop owner, though.
