After waiting for months for Sweetwater to get these in stock, and spending the last two weeks with an order in being told "We haven't heard from Boss, but you're first on the list!" Uh huh sure. I even explained that I could go buy it locally, I was just trying to be loyal to Sweetwater..... "Well, that's your choice" Wrong answer, Bub. Today, since SWMBO was otherwise occupied, I decided to take a trip to my local Sam Ash. After browsing for a bit, I asked about the Katana 50 (they had one on the floor) and explained my situation and asked if they could do anything for me. Answer: Hell Yeah! They dropped the price of the amp to fit their 2 year warranty in there for me so I could have it at the same price as Sweetwater. Yeah, I had to pay tax, and buy my own Tootsie Rolls, but I got MINE! It wasn't even the floor model. Now if they could just stock my damn strings........ Yeah, I got my Tootsie Rolls Freshly opened Looks sweet! Furball approved (for now). I hadn't plugged it in yet. Top Panel Custom 12" speaker. Back panel. I'm gonna install the Boss Tone Studio software and start tinkering!
