A little over ten years ago Bad Cat created the world's first Class A high gain amplifier, the Hot Cat 30. The same year it was introduced it received the coveted Editor's Pick Award. Within a few years it had worked its way up to second position in Guitar Player Magazine's list of the "Best Combos Ever Made!". Just for fun we built a 100w Hot Cat to enter into their "100 Watt Showdown"... it won unanimously. There is truly something special about this original circuit.
We started with the most hi-fidelity clean channel ever designed, gave it an interactive tonestack that can be tailored around anything from jangly single coils to thick humbuckers and paired it with the smoothest high gain channel imaginable. We gave this "hot" channel a sweepable mid control that allows it to produce a wide range of gain voicings. Independent K Master and reverb controls allow each channel to be set at any desirable gain and output level and the global cut control adjusts upper treble frequencies to accommodate for dark instruments or rooms.

Dedicated K Master® control for each channel

Reverb We discovered a unique way to make our spring reverb sit perfectly in the mix without ever overpowering the instrument or stealing tone from the preamp. This approach produces studio grade reverb right through your loudspeaker.

Pre-owned Guild D-25M (1976). In very good condition ,especially for the age. Has all the normal wear and tear, The top has some light bumps and bruises, light checking and minor chips. The back has a few spots with buckle rash, checking and small indentations. Structurally sound and sounds like a grand piano! Huge range and beautiful tone. The action is around 5/64th's on the high e string side and 6 6/64th's on the low E side. The saddle is a little low, and the frets are worn a bit flat but are divot free.The nut has been replaced at some point as well. The endpin/strap button has been removed and modified to fit a pickup endpin which since has been removed. A replacement endpin will be included and can be lightly glued in on request.
A great player guitar that has all the vintage vibe and character!
