I would think the usual spots would be thrift stores, pawn shops and some music stores. Music-Go-Round is a sort of chain of used musical instrument shops. The few times I've visited the one in Atlanta there's always been at least one or two T&R amps there. Of course, their prices tend to be on the high side, but I imagine they're open to haggling.

Good luck finding Krossroads. I have a standing search on ebay for "krossroad", and I get about 2 hits a year.

Music-Go-Round has a web site that is a cross reference for all of their stores. You can find quite a few pieces there. New pieces are showing up all the time. I have purchased 5 Kustom rigs on ebay, one at a local music store, and 2 from Music-Go-Round. I bought 2 3x15 Siren PA cabs from MGR that I originally sought out in Huntsville, AL. I called them, they sent pictures and wanted only $200 for the pair. My wife and I were driving to Florida from Wisconsin for a Disney vacation and we stopped there and I (she) decided they were too rough and when I saw the speakers were not all Jensens but replacement crap, I (we) did not buy them. I couldn't get them out of my mind and I wanted to replace the speakers anyway. I found out the cabs were transfered to a MGR in Atlanta and I called and they wanted $400 now. I couldn't wait and I bought them on the spot. Oh yea, I was in China at the time. When I got back home I had to figure out a way to pick them up. It happened that a customer of mine had a automation issue in his plant in Macon, GA and my son and I jumped in my work van, drove to Atlanta, picked up the columns, drove to Macon, fixed the problem and drove home. Not bad for a days work. Another PA set just dropped in my lap. I had my complete PA rig set up in the middle of our small town for a fall festival and a man came up and asked if I would be interested in a pair of red 3x15 siren cabinets. I bought the immaculate pair for $400 and picked them up a couple of days later. He lived less than 10 miles from my house and they sat in his house for more than 20 years. Just keep looking.
