Pignose 7-100 Amplifier Review

Pignose 7-100

Ever since I first saw Crossroads when I was a kid, I thought the Pignose 7-100 amplifier was pretty cool and wanted one (along with a Fender Telecaster).  I’m not sure why I never bought one since they aren’t exactly cost prohibitive.  When I first tried to learn guitar when I was younger we didn’t have the internet (wow, I just felt really old saying that) so it wasn’t like I could go on ebay to find one.  My gear selection was limited to the three guitar shops in town and none of them had the Pignose.  Well here I am (many) years later and taking up the guitar again and the Pignose 7-100 popped back into my mind and I picked one up.
