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: Ugh! Dropped small nut while installing new outside lamp. Thought I saw where it landed. Couldn't find it. Moved the car & such. Engineering mind said, drop another (after ~hour). Bang! Within 5 seconds. Nut found! Yea! Wife Impressed!

GuitarZ: Bells & Whistles-New Cars. A year with our Subaru Outback, finally realized doors have to be unlocked for inside rear hatch button to work. Dang! I need that feature for social distancing. Looked like an idiot pulling up & jumping out to manually open.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
