Just bought a GK400RB (the old type) off Tardme for $250. Will be good for my bass guitar gigs with a nice lightweight cab.

I fixed a couple of knobs with missing pointers, sprayed all the pots and pushbuttons with contact cleaner, and fixed the loose fitting screws on the top plate. Good as a bought one! Running it through my PJB 6x5" cab (5 ohms, 600 watts) and it sounds fantastic. The cab is so small the amp has to sit sideways on top of it. Gonna try it out at a couple of gigs and see how it goes. I suspect I'll still end up with the PJB amp for double bass, and the GK/PJB combination for bass guitar. :)
