I was reading a book the other day entitled "The Four Agreements." Basically, it's a book that gives four principles to practice in order to create love and happiness in your life. Like I'm Buddha over here but you know, a brothas gotta hold down these voices in his head. I certainly don't want to pull a semi-automatic pistol out from under the seat 'cause I just don't understand rap and feel compelled to mean mug someone.
With that being said, the last agreement of the four is: "In everything you do, do your best." I know, I know- it's a revelation, right? But if you really think it through, you'll see that if you leave it all on the court with "everything," then you don't feel encapsulated in guilt that you did not. "Lee what are you saying and how does this apply to this amp?" Well, simply put, can you name someone better (other than Roger Staubach) that did it better than Leo Fender?
Not only was he a pioneer, he also had the gift of sight. Considering he only had one eye to service him, he had the vision to bring the guitar and bass from the back of the orchestral pit to the forefront of the stage. This vision came to him like the burning bush did for Mosses. When talent meets practicalities, greatness will arise. This former bookkeeper turn inventor had to do it right in all phases of his life.
As for this amp? Take a look- it literally is his vision brought to fruition. With the exception of a few caps and the cord being changed, this amp is just like it left Leo's hands. The tone is as if God whispered to you while you're dreaming. As mentioned before, "In everything you do, do your best." Something to indeed ponder and in closing from playing guitar to loving the Ms., do your best. I'll leave you with a quote:
“What ever you do, do it well. Do it so well that when people see you do it they will want to come back and see you do it again and they will want to bring others and show them how well you do what you do.”
From another legend, Walt Disney...
