Quackenbush Duo-Echo, I'll bet.

They had a lot of mojo but they didn't sound good. The speakers were made from marijuana plants and chassis parts were scavenged from Dynaflow transmissions until they ran out of old Buicks. And then quality took a real. nosedive.

Biggest problem: grill cloth tended to catch fire when playing double-stops on the high E and B strings.

At 126 pounds, they weighed as much as a girlfriend but were notably less enjoyable to pick up. To compensate, they had excellent casters -- highly sought-after nowadays.

Less than a hundred were ever made, and just over a hundred are known to still exist.

Most famously used on Bachman Driver Overturn's last record, You Ain't Seen Muffin Yet.

Standels were better amps.

PS: OK, so I'm in a goofy mood... :P :D I hope there's a real prize awaiting you, Bobcat!

oooh we need pics...inside and out... A lady I did some work for many years ago said..."Do you like Fender"? Reach back in that closet....behind some stuff...If you like it...it's YOURS.

It was a 1953 Fender Deluxe Tweed! She was the second owner, hadn't been fired up since 1966....

I put a fuse in her...and she was great!... I recapped her, new resistors...and bought a road case for her... I recorded with her once... 12 tracks...awesome!

I hope your FIND is a great one like mine was....
