After living outside of the US for a while, we recently moved back to California and since getting back I've been looking to pick up a Carmen Ghia again. Yesterday, bingo! One popped up on CL about 3 miles from where I live and today the deal is done - $750 for an early green jewel Ghia with a Celestion Blue! Great deal, huh?
I have a couple of questions:
1. Can anyone help me date the amp? The serial number is R-71276. 2. I'm going to need an attentuator. Is the Dr Z Brake Lite the best attentuator for the amp? Any other recommendations?

Congratulations, you're the owner of a ca. 2007 model Ghia according to the Z amp dating page. Enjoy the combo and the blue. With that I'd forego the attenuator and just play it. Welcome back. I recently rejoined ownership myself with an R s/n Ghia 2/10.
GuitarZ: I'm okay with the AARP letters. You're still living and breathing? What the heck am I to think when a funeral home sends me a free consultation offer? Ouch!

The Bad Poodle: I bought airline tickets online... now every few days i get emails that read "Your trip is almost here but aren't you forgetting something?? You don't have trip insurance!" and i'm thinking..."is there something i should know about your plane maintenance?"

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
