Do you like Shawn Lane? This was his favorite amp ever.
Late 70s Holmes Mississippi Bluesmaster amp.
$199 plus shipping. It sounds great, very atypical EQ response, and rich reverb. Everything works well.
This amp has more EQ character than any amp I've seen. Its a solid state amp that runs just about as loud as my 40w Tube Bogner, so I think its 75-80 watt range.
The cleans and verb verb are luscious, very Fender like, and kicking in the Drive and Super T (Presence) make it respond more Hendrixy, like a Fuzz Face with much more definition.
Also, it has a ridiculously quick response. The notes seem to jump out of the guitar almost presciently - it is a "quicker-sounding" amp. Its hard to describe - the amp almost begs you to play faster. There is no tube sag.

I did a little more digging. It's a 2 OHM output impedance. Apparently a lot of the Holmes amps are based on his Model 200 D power amplifier, which puts out 200 Watts at 2 OHMs and around 80 Watts at 8 OHMs according to his web page.
