Default Thrift store find with pics!!

This little beauty is what made me want to build a cabinet! I picked it up at the thrift store for $28. Its an M-80 Chorus head by Fender. It didn't have any carpet on it and some of the screws were loose. I added some cheapo carpet (Home Depot - $8) and a few new screws ($4). Grand total, $40. What do you think? This should power the 4x12 cab, right?

Pretty cheap SS head... I'd love to have a thing like this to use as a slave head for my digital modeller...

Looks like you got a pretty good deal. I think I'd put a handle on it though. You can get 'em and other amp stuff here:

Edit to add: Post a photo of your spk cabinet when it's finished, and tell us how it sounds too!
How do I put the smoke back in this thing?
