    Bought mine (’65) back in the 70s for $130, perfectly stock. Rockinest combo amp I’ve ever owned, still sounds great. For quieter venues my ’68 Deluxe Reverb does well. I’m getting old, and helps to have some nice toys around. ’66 Telecaster through the dimed Vibrolux Reverb is heaven on earth. Kind neighbors allow me some senile moments during the day.

    Had an Ampeg ReverbRocket w tremelo in the mid-60s and moved on to a Vox AC30 2×12 in 1969-70; now wishing I had not have ever gotten rid of them — but when you’re young and dumb and think bigger is better .. then I had a late 70s Orange OR120 trade in I bought from a music store that I worked at for $175 that didnt know what they had. it was stolen a few years later right off the truck by 2 local nappy headed youths, while we were loading in our gear into a club, right off the street into the front of the club for a gig in Chicago around 1983, came back outside to get the amp and they were already 2 blocks down the street running with the 2-ton amp head between them and disappeared into a huge condemned apartment complex above storefronts — when the cops finally got there, they refused to go into the tenement, claiming it was private property, unsafe, and nobody was supposed to be living in there — and none of the squatters living there gave honest answers to the cops either.. so all was lost. And the price it would cost me to replace those 3 amps today makes me ill !!!
