I had a Gadabout and sold it. It was ok. Think of these as practice amps or something to take camping and haul along a electric guitar. I wouldn't sink to much money into one thou.

Some folks charge...and/or pay a bunch for anything Gretsch.

Great idea before it's time. I ended up with a Roland Microcube. 6 aa batteries gets you 6-7 hours of playtime. A Pignose ran a close second.

Not for 500 Euros---maybe 50, and that's just for the value of the Gretsch knob and nameplate. Vox makes a number of far better battery powered amps, and even a Pignose would be a better value, among others.

Thanks for your replies. I already thought that the price tag was mainly because of the motto: "Its old, its rare - it has to be expensive".

I'll pass...
