Lol those mornings when you wake up and remember the auction, or have an email saying that you won it. Fuuuuuuu....
I played the old Peavey that became the current 5150 combo a few years ago.
Holy fuck, that thing was a gain machine. I don't think I've played anything like it since
The 6505? I played one of those, didn't love it that much, it was all gain, but little character/roundness. The EVH has it all.
I got a bit carried away on eBay last night........ and won one. Should be arriving late this week; will certainly report back when I can give it a good hour or so of playing.
It was actually quite epic, and all happened the night the auction was ending.
There had been 1 bid on the head for about a week, and I figured they probably set their "Max Bid" higher, and I wasn't willing to go too far (like maybe $20) over the current bid, so I figured I had no chance. Then mysteriously, the guy cancelled his bid with 5 hours left in the auction yesterday. So I'm thinking, "I'm set." Then with 20 minutes left, another bid appears..... back to "fuck, I'll try, but I doubt I'll win."
With 30 seconds left I placed my bid. My bid was immediately beaten, I guess he was either watching live or had set a max bid. So with about 10 seconds left I placed one final bid. And to my amazement, as the timer counted down from 10 to 0, my bid was not beaten. I went about $20 over what I determined was my "limit," so not bad considering.
The adrenaline was real.
