Missing Gries 5 in Charleston, SC
5 combo was delivered to the wrong address (a business) in Charleston, SC on Friday, August 24, 2018. The carrier was
unable to locate where it was left. The person who signed for it has not been honest enough to contact the carrier,
the recipient, or me to return the amp. It has smooth black tolex, blue Ampeg grill cloth, a large black leather handle,
and cream colored chicken head knobs. If you do see this amp for sale keep in mind the person selling it did not pay
Gries Amplifiers (pronounced "Grice") are based on the classic tube amps
built from the late 50's to the mid 60's. All amps feature modern circuit enhancements and improved construction
methods and components.
