It's a present to myself for finally having buckled down and started working on blues scales, etc. (trying to turn writer's/podcaster's block into something productive). The only amp I have is one that I got as part of a $10 package at a garage sale including a cheap Stratocaster clone. The guitar is a much better instrument than you'd expect to find at a garage sale for $10, but if I'd known how crackly the amp was I would have thrown it in the trash. I'll probably mostly play one of my flat-top acoustics through this using a transducer pickup. Maybe with it clipped to my belt while I walk around.
