Well an update. I found a Peavey just like I had back in 1979, except this has BlackWidow speakers. At the time, there was not a BW model at the store I bought my original one from. This was made in 1979. 120 Watts. I feel for the guy who prepped this for shipping. All 90 lbs of it. Took it to a Peavey tech and asked him to go through it end to end. Everything was original so he replaced some components, tested every connection, cleaned everything up, etc. He commented that there was a niche market for them now. And the day I went to pick it, it was sitting on the floor with other equipment and a guy walked in, did a u-turn and asked if it was for sale.
It might not be the perfect sound, but there is something about these I just like.

There has been a handful (Emplexador, 5150-II, '78 JMP, Buddy Guy signature 5F6) but the one I miss the most is the Mission Amps Tweedy Deluxe 5E3 kit that was my first amp build. I have all the other amps I've built, but I let this one go in a weak moment and still regret it. It's still out there and I could maybe track it down, but I might just build another.

I've never been a regularly gigging player, so amps have not been as important to me as they otherwise would have, but...I do have one regret in this area. I had a Laney VC-30 210 that my American Strat used to sound soooo freaking great through. I definitely heard that wonderful "sparkle" that I've heard described by some guitarists. Both the Laney and the Strat are gone, and I regret those two sales more than any.

Any one of the 3 Mesa Blue Angels I've owned. I have a feeling I'll buy another some day and probably end up selling it too. :cautious:
