Thread: Lookie what I scored!

  1. #1

    Lookie what I scored!

    One of the huge benefits of writing all those reviews is that people find them when researching the rare piece of gear they have and then contact me asking if I want to buy it. That's how I got the Blade Runner, and that's how I got this Timberline G500!

    This is only the third one I've seen with AcornHouse's being one of the other two. I managed to connect with the guy that designed all of the Timberline Amps and he doesn't even know anything about these G500s. I cannot wait to tear this one open and you know there's an awesome restoration coming!

    If you mean no tolex, in the vast sample size of three that I know of, yours is now the outlier having tolex and a different face plate. Maybe yours is special!

    Interesting that the G500 model didn't use the G shield knobs like the other models did.
