I love this amp. I tried almost every amp in the store and ended up buying this one. I ended up lacquering the tweed, changing the handle to a raised leather one, added a vintage green buffed glass jewel light and vintage bakelite chicken head knobs to it. It's a looker and it sounds awesome. I know it's not hand wired, but who cares when it sounds that good... Chris Here is my baby that gets played through this awesome amp! Notice the Gretsch bigsby? I prefer the look on the SSLVO over the standard generic bigsby, but that's just me.
