Yeah, I remember those old tucked-and-rolled padded Kustom amps - the bass and keyboard amps were good, guitar ones not so much.
The China Kustom stuff has been around for quite a while, most sales through Guitar Center, I think. Sounds ok until pushed, then the harshness shows up.
I've heard a lot of people rave about those PA-50s for the price (you can often see them at GC for $90, and used to be $80). They have a battery-oeprated model, too, but it's over $200 I think. Of course no low end from the small speakers, but ok for guitar as long as you don't Drop D!
