Funny you should mention amps - my last job I worked was with Norb
Funk the creator of Fatboy Amps. It was _very_ cool listening to his
stories about meeting Santana and Jeff Beck. (Last I heard he was
also thinking about doing a limited number of amps to sell on E-Bay as well.)
Actually, $500 is about what Norb told me I should get for a basic
amp to get me started.

That's what Norb said as well. He told me that unless he was planning
on re-building or refurbishing the amp he would almost always buy an
amp new just because people "tweak" the internals so much.
(Who should be learning on his '54 Gibson while he's got the time between jobs.)
