Looking at a potential new amp for me. I'm looking for a silverface Bassman, and I found one for a good deal. However, its a 135 which is a model I've never seen before. Research tells me its the most popular bassman for bass players, but is it just as good as the other bassmans for guitarists? Its got a mid control which is pretty cool.

Any guitar experience with this amp would be helpful... thanks

Maybe the price tag is clouding your judgment ?
yeah probably. Or the circuits.

this is one of the later 70's bassman models. around this period in time the silverfaces used these ultra linear transformers that made the amps loud as hell. since the 135 has a 100 watt power section (i am guessing it runs 4x6L6GC) your amp should have headroom for days.

it should take pedals like a champ, and it should sound pretty good pushing the first gain stage a bit. i'd go for it. how much he asking? i prob wouldn't pay more than 400, maybe 500 on it.
