Don't tell me.....You finally got an air conditioner! It looks a little old but I'm sure it runs just fine!

VERY cool... Had a Bassman with four 10"s in it that I had borrowed from a friend years ago. (damn, he wanted it back. just as well, I played a bit then quit) But it was a beast. Love the warm sound of those tubes.

Nice! I need to get a nice tube amp. My strat just doesn't sound like it should through a solid state.

Yep, I bet one of those would make your Strat quack just like the lord intended.

That's awesome. I have a Marshall half stack, but it's a bit anemic with their cheap 100W digital/solid state amp head and 4x10s rather than 4x12s. Still, it's a Marshall, and that's better than most of my friends can say. Plus, I can wake the neighbors and their ancestors when I crank it to eleven...

It has a really sweet clean channel, so I'm wondering what a Tube Screamer would sound like. Guess I should drop a buck or two on some good effects.

That sure looks sweet! They've really changed over the years...

Here's a pic of my '76 Fender Princton Reverb and my guitars: '76 Fender Telecaster Deluxe, '90s Chinese Strat, 2 - '90s Mexi's, '81 Kamon ac/el. I also have a Line 65 Vetta Combo.

That Tele is awesome...Actually my amp is just a 1965 reissue. Its pretty much the same as the old silverface twins (that look exactly like your princeton) the main difference is that its 'blonde' with blackface instead of silver.

Mine is actually a 1-12, not a twin.

Yours seems to have much more to offer...mine's just an old codger now... that's why I got the Vetta Combo.
