Question about Peavey Classic 30

Hey, Lately I've been considering getting a Peavey Classic 30. The only main issue I've heard about it is that the tubes are exposed in the back so they can be easily broken. Do peavey's new classic 30's come with some kind of guard?, cause I heard that somewhere, but it wasnt a very reliable source Thanks. I'm waiting for my shop to get some in, but i'd like to know in the meantime.

The first time I heard a Beatles song was "Let It Be." Some little kid was singing along with it: "Let it pee, let it pee" and pretending he was taking a leak. Hey, that's what happened, OK?-some guy

I don't think it's too much of a problem, so long as your careful with it. The tubes may be exposed, but they are not standing proud of the amp.

However, if it does worry you, try checking the peavey website, or even see if you can purchase some sort of guard (or just make one yourself?)

Nice link, Wes. Neat product and a must have when transporting that amp. I'd be scared of breaking tubes.
