Nice to see the frame end up with an other retro-lover.
I was also thinking of bidding, but when I got answer to my $300 shipping question, my mind was telling me not to. Maybe that's how it stayed cheap...

Hope you let us enjoy a bit while you built it up.. :D


of course, i will keep this post going with my progress and hopefully i will get some advice and feedback from you

As far as I'm aware the Mongoose Amplifiers were just AMP frames which were sold under licence by Mongoose & labelled as Mongoose Amplifiers - the two frames were identical just with different graphics.

Here is the 1993 AMP brochure:

A nice little review in MBA Dec 93:

Good luck with build.

Plenty of AMP fans on here. I'm looking for a nice B2 for my next project.
