My friend was selling me his Marshall amp (JCM800, 2x12). He came over. We chatted a bit. I plugged it in, turned it on, let it warm up. After a
couple minutes took it off stand-by. A chord here, Chuck Berry-esque double stop... "D@mn that sounds good!" Up the volume a bit and I launch into the
song below. Just once through the three cords in the verse. Maybe 15 seconds in total. Turn down the volume, hit stand by, then grabbed my check
Made the deal and said our good byes. I go back and sit on the sofa, watching TV, when a knock comes to my door. It's the police!
"Sir. We've received a noise complaint..."
I showed them the amp was off. There was no guitar plugged in. I told them I had to try it out before buying it to make sure it works.
