Everyone has a smartphone right? I tried to get him to post before he sold his Les Paul but I always got the same response; too busy. Hes retired now.

Not that anyone here was ever gonna ask me to hack on a Strat on video; I'll just put my excuses up right now:
  • Nope don't have an iPhone (or any kind of smart phone).
  • I don't, wont, or attempt to video myself playing.
And before some of you , I'll let you that there is video of me playing on TV shows already out there in cyber world.

I'll call Doug and get him working on this alleged video. If it exists he'll find it. Because Doug.

I have not picked a guitar up in 10 years or more.
RUSH ?? I could have played Temples of Srynx front to back, back then.
Now??? NFW. That was many brain cells ago.
I'd have to practice everything for weeks to get my chops back, that is, if my hurt thumb will allow it.
I have wicked stage fright, therefore I never played out with a band.
It took everything that I had to just jam in the basement with a few bands. Ya, It was great, but I'm not a performer kinda guy.
Playing kept me sane early in my marriage with the new kids, etc.

I haven't ridden a motocrosser for more than 10 years either but I am not looking for a vintage bike to relive my youth. You have downsized, moved, haven't played in eons and have no desire to post up here... why TF are you looking for a new amp? So you can say "I used to use something like that when I still had a life"?

It's all in the first post.
He said he wanted an old tube amp...not a new one.
and he said he wanted to get back into playing.

The only thing he went sideways on was buying as an investment.

Exactly.
Mark made a good point though, that I did downsize.
While it would be cool to have a vintage tube amp sitting around, it would probably end up being just a functional art piece.
The negatives outweigh the positives at this point.
That, and the fact that I have something going on with my fret hand, gives me pause.

You made that point clear in your first sentence.
So; you changed your mind again, deciding it's best not to own any more gear...no big deal...it's prolly menopause affecting you this way.

It's just weird being retired.
I don't know what I want anymore.
I'd love to travel and go live in Florida for the winter but this Covid thing is mucking those plans all up.
I'm just bored as fk.

Get a sex change. It would align your body with your emotions.

Meh... If it wasn't for this Covid bullshit, it'd be all good.
I can't wait until the vaccine is distributed and life gets back to abnormal again.
