    At the same church yard sale where I found the tiny Melody tube amp, they were also selling this Yamaha Fifty 410. It was in good shape and the price seemed quite reasonable, but I still had to hymn and haw over buying it because it was huge, heavy (but it did have wheels), and did have one torn speaker. I walked away and came back ten minutes later and it was still there, so I bought it for $50. Everything works and it sounds great, but it's enormous!

    Nice score. I vaguely recall that this is/was a professional quality SS amp. The G100 was used by Mike Stern and Pat Metheny. Designed to sound like a Fender Twin. Used by Jazz musicians and surf rock players.

    Yamaha makes great stuff. I have its 30 watt little brother & many say it is the cleanest amp they have heard. It is forty years old & still rocking. Congrats!
