my s/n is 493
1966 Supro Thunderbolt, recently back in action.
@JaredmacNeil90 @swivel @NowEarThis thanks for the detailed posts.
Yes, does make sense having the extra clean channel.
Also, harmonica players, that's one thing I hadn't thought about.
Liking this thread a lot, a lotta gems on show!
Love them Boogies, early ones are all hand-wired from what I understand, one of a kind!
@hcsterg enjoy the beauty or is it a beast
Everything Leo made was gold!
'48 Deluxe Reverb.
It sure is but it’s kind of messy lol I had it apart once or twice lol
Looked like this when I bought it -
Looks like this nowadays -
My BF Champ and P2P handwired Kalamazoo Model One, and behind the Guild Starfire is my 1950s vintage Valco Sportsman.
I also have the '93 USA Made Blues DeLuxe (between the LPC and L7) but I don't count that as vintage, nor is the Carls Custom Amps 5E3 (to the right of the L7) a vintage amp, though it is a vintage circuit design.
Gone but not forgotten (sold long ago): SF Bassman and SF Pro Reverb; these were sold long ago along with the '73 hardtail Strat and the stereo equipment. Here you can better see the Valco Sportsman (which I have) resting on top of the Gay-Wilcox Recordio (which I have).
The lead singer I was in a side band with had one of these, with the 15" (or was that the "III?"). It was perfect for what we were doing (Americana/Y'Allternative originals)
they’re fantastic. great growl at about 7 on the dial
Great rug, too!
Yes. That's the same experience I have with MKIIC, MKIII and MKIV I had in for repairs. MKIIA and B are very similar in tone, but after these models, it's done for tone...
That said, I still never had in hands the very latest MK series to rewise my opinion !
Yes. Lower S/N is due to a spearate numering scheme tied to the 15" models. The MKIIA has been produced between 1978 and 1980 at the latest, with the S/N° organized as follow :
- 12" models : 3000-5574
- 15" models : 300-549
I had these informations from The Boogie Board website, but can't retrieve the link...
I have a few odds and ends. Mostly odds.
'60s Sunn 200S, technically a bass amp but I use it for guitar:
'69 Kustom 100:
1966 Super Reverb, "dual cabbed" by a previous owner:
1980s Marshall solid state combos (5002, 5210, 5275):
Oh, and this Ampeg SVT 8x10 fridge cab, I'm guessing '70s (predates the tilt-back handles and back wheels):
love that Marshall stack!
You should totally post the pic of all the marshalls , like 6-7 of them i think, in the same garage door background!
thats a great pic
Haha, thanks! The most I ever had at one time, very briefly, was five. The three solid states previously pictured, plus a solid state Mosfet 100 Reverb Twin 2x12 (on the bottom in this pic), which mosfet I sold to defray part of the cost of a DSL 40C (second from bottom). I only had all five for a couple weeks or so. The 2x12 was more amp than I needed, frankly! (I currently have two 2x12s, a 50W Ampeg Reverberocket, and a 30W AC30cc2, neither vintage.)
Dano Twin Twelve '59?
super reverb would sound massive!
I'm a synth guitarist, so what I've been using is a Princeton Stereo Chorus. The guitar goes into the normal into, the stereo send goes to a mixer, along with the stereo out from my GR-55 and GR-33, and the stereo out from the mixer goes back to the stereo return in the Princeton.
Judges, can I get a ruling? Are '90s amps considered "vintage," for purposes of this thread?
Because if the answer is in the affirmative, I have at least a couple additional amps to post, haha!
However, now that I think about it, I did leave out a late '70s/early '80s guitar cab that I've had for quite awhile, a Risson. I tried to get a replacement badge for it from Bob Rissi (the head of Risson, who worked for Fender and Rickenbacker, prior to founding his own company), but never heard back from him. So I rebadged it with my own "brand," Krashall.
But yeah, it's a Risson. https://rissonamplifiers.com/
For me the term "vintage" is pretty misapplied to music gear/cars/anything but wine, but the usual timespan I've had the impression was common in retail for something to qualify as "vintage" is 25 years (so currently that would put the cutoff at 1996). If that's the one we're using for this thread I could include both of my Marshall cabs too I believe, a 1960A from the 90s & a 1966A from the 80s.
Love the custom badge! I think if I needed to replace one of mine I'd have to go for the "Cool Brand" text in Marshall script a la Scott Pilgrim
Edit: Had to comment on your 24 fret, maple capped Special too as it's the only other one I seen "in the wild" aside from the one I received in trade for some stuff a few years back. It's even got the same clownburst finish, good stuff
