I traded a 90's Gibson Les Paul Special for a Kendrick 50 watt Beaumont Gusher head about 25+ years ago. I would have traded 2 LP Specials for the Kendrick. When I tried the amp, I was in love and held my playing back because the original owner might realise the Kendrick's greatness and change his mind. It has an aged lacquer tweed covering and a trapazoidal shape. I spoke to Gerald about the amp and heard his conceit and talking down to me........I think he thinks he can walk on water. IMO, Gerald's amps vary from one toanother. Some are meh and a very few are magic. IMO, Gerald thinks all of his amps are magic and untouchable. Yeah, right. I've sought out other Kendrick amps and, realised (IMO), I got lucky. Don't have the Epi or the Mesa Cab anymore (I still have those ratty shoes).
