Well someone nailed it... for 699, it was a good deal
One of the interesting things about that amp is that the power amp was in the cab. The head only contained the pre-amp and effects. I know this as I saw a Series 90 head for cheap on eBay, then realized it wouldn't be worth much without the power amp/cab!
That was the big change made for the Series 90... as recently as 1990-- not that recent, really, it appears some Series 90 amps were used in a Byrds reunion show(!)
There's one of these on Craigslist in the SF Bay Area right now - $500! If I had room or an excuse for such a monster....
