Way back in the day, early 80s, I lusted after a Mesa 1-12" combo in a local shop. I loved its tone. Thick, rich, and kinda saturated but not really high gain like the modern ones. No idea of the model, and I cant even remember if it was multi channel. But alas I was a broke and had to make do with my old Peavey Artist from a pawnshop, lol. It looked kinda like this: If I got a Mesa that would be the tone I'd want, but have no idea what current model is in the same ballpark.
