    I got an even trade offer for my '66 AB165 Bassman blackface head (stock except for the 3 prong plug and newer JJ power tubes). The offer is for a 1969 AB763 Silverface Fender Super Reverb, alnico speakers, relocated into a '66 blackface cabinet. My head is cosmetically in better shape than the SR. I am going to play it tomorrow, and I've been wanting one of these ever since I heard The Rev's tone...just never had the dough to drop on one. Plus, I can get rid of the reverb and tremolo pedals that are taking up space on my pedalboard.

    So.....if you had the chance, would you trade, or hang onto the bassman? The tone and functionality obviously will be my main deciding factors, but I am interested to hear what the crew here at GT has to say!

    Don't listen to the opinions of a bunch of people who have not played these two amps. Trust YOU!

    I'd take the Super any day.
    Killer amp.
    Nothing quite like it, especially with the CTS speakers.
    One of my holy grail tones.
