Earth G2000 all tube 120 Watt guitar head in Las Vegas for $275

This seller is offering an Earth tube guitar head for $275 which is a good deal but BE FOREWARNED, these amps are incredibly loud.  A guitarist in my old high school cover band used to have one of these and it was louder than our entire 200 watt PA system. There is no master volume on these so when the sweet tube tone kicks in around "3" on the volume you will already be at about 105db.

With that in mind you can get a sweet CCR or Rolling Stones vintage Ampeg guitar tone out of these.

If I remember correctly, these are also good for use as retro keyboard tube amps - the spring reverb really sounds nice too.

The tone of this American-made 120 watt guitar tube amplifier can be described as big and beefy, with huge Fender Twin-like headroom. Rich, chimey cleans. Deep, tube-driven spring reverb.

Takes overdrive, distortion, or fuzz pedals like a dream. My neighbors probably hate me because of this amp. Hear it for yourself.

I've had it since 1999 and have taken great care it ever since. LOTS of tubes with plenty of life in them. It got a full tuneup and cap job about five years ago, but please understand that it's a 30 or 40 year old amp.
