My write-up of the Guild Tweedy Bird MM500 Micro Mini Amp from around 1982.




All the speaker grit was intentionally left on in the pic to annoy Grot. :)

That review was fun to read! Now I know what amp to get if I need a thin, tinny clean sound. Could be useful for recording a specialty part of a motion picture soundtrack. :)

Oh, and I don't have the M-55 adapter.

Then again I've never had a Strat so I wouldn't need one!

I have three Strats, and two of them I printed myself. I'm just not a Strat guy but I have one (three) so I can play the songs that need them.

Maybe the "M-55 adaptor plug" is what was in the empty space between the batteries? But probably not, as it was listed as separate item.

An Aria Loco Boy had sold on ebay some time ago:
