    My company got a new rewards vendor - we earn bonuses for working OT that can be used from an online catalog. I enjoy my work, so OT + rewards is pretty cool.

    These are in the new rewards catalog - the old one had low end junk for music gear. Gotta figure out what to save for - figure about a year and a half.

    Depends on what your taste is. Given the above, I say the SC20C.

    If it were me (which it's not obviously) I'd grab the Deluxe. I miss my 65 FSD RI so much.

    This was my amp gig rig for a couple years.

    I'd probably go SC20C, but you'd get to the Vox sooner & then get something for the MS. so she leaves you alone.

    well if its gonna take 1.5 yrs my guess is a new catalog will be out before you score your amp. but, i would go for the best of the options. the Fender reverb.

    Naw - shouldn't be a problem. We had our last vendor for years.

    I'd go w/the one you wouldn't ordinarily buy for yourself, but would like to own. For me, that'd be either the Fender or the Vox. Unlikely I'd buy either, but both would be fun to have on the side if the mood strikes.

    Don't let the catalogue fool you. The AC30 is a AC30S1 with only 1x12" VX12 not a regular AC30C2 with 2x12" G12M Greenback or AC30C2X with 2x12" ”Blue Bulldog”

    There is nothing there I would really want, and if you don’t have one that jumps out at you you’re probably the same. I would pick the one you could sell easy and for the most. I would also start tucking a little dough away so when you get the points you need, you should also have at least a grand or so. Now when you get this ok amp, sell it, add up all you now have........ BAM! You now may be able to buy an amp you REALLY want. (Or guitar if your happy with your amps.) Use the opportunity to come ahead buy getting something you need.
