So, I surf Craigslist regularly in search of great deals, but this morning, I think I found something special...

I found a 1968 Fender Bandmaster w/ EV Loaded Fender 2-12" Cabinet for $1000, (head for $400),
and (here's the biggie), a 1966 Fender Bassman head for $400.00.


You Bassman experts out there, is this a good deal? It looks to be in pretty good condition for an amp from 66.

Don't judge me.

That sounds good, especially the EVM cab, and the Bassman.

I'm not a huge fan of BF Bassman heads (though they are great), but they usually sell around 700 for a BF one.

Both good deals.

Make sure you get a Cap job done if you get it

Hm. I just found a Mk. IV for $1125. I think I prefer that to the Bassman.


Edit....and an XXX head for $500...


Where have these people been all my life?

Whatever keeps your watercraft buoyant, I guess.

Eh, I love the Mesa tone, but my amp doesn't particularly cut that mustard.

I'd rather spend 700 on a MKIII, personally. If I was getting a MK series, it'd be a I or for br00tz, and the III can get as brootal as I would need And it's teh cheaper.

Eh, I don't play teh br00tz, and the IV is better at everything in between.

So is a Stiletto, or a Lonestar

But the IV and IV seem more like swiss army knives to me. I don't really get along with multichannel, multi-mode amps, myself.

Ah yes, I remember that. You're a single-channel guy. Well, I would much prefer a Stiletto or Lonestar, but those never pop up around here.
