Yesterday I bought 2 NEW Amps- this and a Vibrolux.

However, this was a steal. It is a one-owner from new, never gigged, perfect conditon (and I mean, it's out of the wrapper!) 1977 Fender UL Silverface with JBL D120's. It still has the 'case candy.'

I paid £500 for it, so I believe it's an absolute gift at that price. The wiring board looks brand new, the tubes are NOS and it's been revalved and serviced, the caps are perfect, the braid cables are perfect...this is like a museum piece. More pics to follow and I am currently cube-basing some sound clips, but it's a lovely warm Fender chime, none of the brittle breakup of modern Reissues, and very controlable for a 135w amp. Bedroom levels easily achieved simply by turning MV down.

Tonally, not a creak or a hiss in sight.

I love old twins as they're exactly what you expect, they work at lower vols, and have amazing warmth. The JBL's are the icing. They're in A1 condition.

I am over the moon.

I picked up a 77' a few months back. They do sound great.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Killer score there! Those old Silverface-era Fenders are quite possibly the best value out there when it comes to vintage amps - That one looks like it's in great shape too!
