Larryz Posted August 31, 2016 Share Posted August 31, 2016 Pulled the trigger last night on a Fender 112 Hot Rod Deluxe after having a major GAS attack. An old friend wanted to sell it for $400 bucks. It has a beige cab with a brown grill cloth and it looks brand new as it's hardly been used. Plugged her in last night and she really sounds sweet with my Epi-ES 175 Premium running USA Gibson 57 Humbuckers. Can't wait to try my Strats, Taylors, etc., through it, but that's gonna take some time. Only got to play it last night for about a 1/2 hour. Anyway I'm a very happy camper... I have been looking at a Laney Ironheart 30 and was ready to pull the trigger on the labor day sale at MF and GC. They run $700 and on sale I could have got it for $600+/-. They weigh 45lbs and after reading all the reviews and watching the demo vids, I decided to call my buddy that I had offered $400 for his HRD to see if he still had it. He did, but an old music buddy of mine came by 2 days ago and may make him an offer of $425. I told him my cash offer was still good at $400 as of today and he took it. The Laney and the HRD both weigh 45lbs. I won't be using all the OD features on the Laney and would save $200, so the HRD won out... I was just over at my Son-n-laws for his Birthday party a couple of days ago as I have been drooling over the old Twin Reverb sitting in his living room for quite some time. It brings back many memories of my gigging days and I still reminisce about having my old one back! Anyway I picked the Twin up (or tried to pick it up) off the floor and told him I was not going to trade him out of it as it's just too heavy. When comparing the Laney and the HRD to the Twin, I was thinking 45lbs ain't so bad LOL! When I got the HRD home, I picked it up and then picked up my Hot Rod DeVille @ 55lbs. The DeVille will have to go LOL! I like the 410's but will be just as happy with the HRD 112! As we get older, weight definitely becomes a factor IMHO. Anyway, as Fats said "yes indeed, I'm in love again... Take care, Larryz Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
