I miss my F50 combo

My gateway drug to mesa amps was an F50 combo. I sat in with a friend's band and the guitarist had one. I one I had to have one and bought it soon after. I gigged it and rehearsed with it for about a year before trying a rack-based mesa setup. First a studio pre with 50/50 amp, then a triad is with 2:90.

Many amps later, I really miss the F50.

They're still pretty easy to find. I still love mine, many years later.

I had a treble pot replaced because I hit it on something and broke it, that's the only issue I have had with it other than re-tubing it after many years.

I ran into one at a good price, so now I have one again! It's even better than I remembered. I was a fool to go without.
