For the old fart Canadians amongst us - a Garnet "Stencil" (Ram) amp from Value Village today

Picked this up for USD$15 at Value Village today.

This type of amp is called a "Stencil", which means "made by Garnet, but not branded Garnet".

Garnets are vintage and well regarded here in Canada. They are sought after by collectors.

Calgary remains the happy hunting ground. Am happy with this find!

I'm darn near an old fart (53), however, my 39 year old wife thinks I yell at the sky like an old fart. :D
Garnets are cool, even for Yanks like me! I also like Yorkvilles!
Randy Bachman put them on the map for me.
