Drool... Sorry!






This was announced at his year's just completed NAMM Show. It's a small tube amplifier by Fender called the Greta. A two-watt tabletop amp from their pawnshop series with a special design 4" speaker, designed to look like an old-time radio. MSRP is $259.99, but street price puts it at $199. I'm thinking it looks wonderful, and the reviews of it are great so far.

They're not available yet, but I know someone at my local music shop who has one on order for himself, and I'm really looking forward to hearing it. Way cool!
