Crate G-40C Stereo 2×8″ 40 Watt Combo Amplifier

This is an amp from my past that is still around. I bought this amp brand new around 1989. No tubes in this one. It is all solid state and has built-in Stereo Chorus and a spring reverb. My old 12-string Rickenbacker sounded good in the clean channel. Wish I still had that Rick.

This amp is not worth much to collectors, but it still works fine and has nice cleans with decent reverb/chorus effects. Still plug in a 12-string electric into it sometimes. Can be used as an amp for acoustic guitars in a pinch as well.
