Manage to rescue this thing out of a friends hands just before it hit the scrap heap. The Ampeg V-4/V-22 was used most famously by Keith (Keef!) Richards –or so I’m told, as well as some lesser known underground wonders like Greg Sage from The Wipers, Doyle from The Misfits, and even the guys in Fear. It’s clearly seen a lifetime of abuse, but with a little love and a bit of money this late 60’s (early 70’s?) amp and matching cab should be up, running, and sounding rad in no time.
