Good bone structure, just needs a little tidy up.

What do people think about price? (where is the chin scratch emoticon?)

Come on, it's 2015.
Who can use an amp like this nowadays?
It's a relic of a bygone era, and needs to be priced accordingly.
As in not too expensive......

That's a nice one in my book. It doesn't seem an outrageous price. Compare that with what that ali-chassis one went for.

Who can use it........... just about every famous Rock guitarist when recording (too rare & valuable to take on the road).

Relic and needs to be priced accordingly ....... tell that to the wealthy collectors who pay $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ when one (rarely) surfaces for sale.

My rare JTM-45 MKIV Bluesbreaker (Head) when shown to a very highly respected Marshall Plexi Clone builder said..... if I ever decide to part with it, he knows 12 people who would buy it instantly.

You obviously have no experience of the collector / player market, nor the appreciation of these Classic Tone Monsters , let alone own any originals.

As they say with Harley Davidson...... if I have to explain it, you wouldn't get it anyway. :cheers:

We are all entitled to our own opinions and I guess Bern1 probably realised he would push a few buttons on this forum with that remark. Yes many things are outdated, like gas guzzling V8 SUVs, classic motorcycles like Brough Superiors, Vincents or Gold Stars (never fancied Harley's myself - guess tha tis my problem), Ferraris, Lambo's heck you have 55mph limits! They all still have their places, sure a full stack is no longer necessary for every gig but when you get the chance!
The price £3250 was not bad at all (too much for me as a buyer, but encouraging as an owner!).

Hi guys,

I guess I was being a little flippant after a martini or two but didn't mean to get anybody seriously riled up. Sorry if I did.
Although I grew up around this gear and still love it (I used a 100 in the early 70's), it's true these days I prefer to build my own amps and the occasional vintage style kit to play out with with my modest classic rock band. I still have a couple of cool vintage amps but they stay at home in the studio or occasionally come to jams with friends.

So, I guess I just should have said what I meant: that it's a cool piece of gear but it's way too expensive for me to consider buying at this point, considering how loud it would be in the dive bars I play at and how old it is, that I don't want to have to worry about frying hard to find original components, etc. etc., all of which you know already...

Carry on, I enjoy it all!

Cheers,

Bernie

oh man, i forgot all about the vincents - when I was young I lusted after a vincent black shadow, but alas, only attained a honda 750 serial number 6668 bored out to 980 - high comp heads, blueprinted, hot cam, and bla bla bla bla all the other really cool stuff that made bikes fast. Too fast...

After one particularly long power slide from 30mph to 88mph in like 2 seconds on a tight but long asphalt curve speed shifting *while still in the power slide* from 2nd to third at 55mph, I decided it was time to part ways with my rocket sled and buy a really slow car instead, lol...

almost did an endo at 55 - i had to wind it all the way up to 12,500 rpm to get the dynamics just right for a speed shift power slide on asphalt, to prevent going end over which would have sent me flying into oncoming cars <<shudderz>>, but I kept my cool and pulled it off --- the last powerslide of my life btw, lol.....
