    $500-600 amp at best. For that you can saw it off and turn it into a Twin but it wont be easy to sell as a MV Twin is only $500-600 anyway!

    Wow...you never see those in my area of operation....LOL..the only rocker I know that would use the external speaker jack would be The Nuge..and he'd need at least three more complete sets of them... 3 cabs loaded with at least two 15'ers...maybe more....thanks for sharing!!

    Huge, top heavy, heavy, loud, heavy .... and priced too high, nobody really wants the big Fender amps these days, and other than a Super Six Reverb, the Quad Reverb is about the biggest and heaviest combo around. I bet it sounds great though!

    I agree with above posters.
    Although it is handsome, and well cared for, I'm afraid that the seller has an unrealistic opinion of its value.
    Can't sell a Twin, how you going to sell a Quad?

    I think it's a fair asking price if negotiable..

    And if you really do need a powerful Concert-size amp ( maybe for touring 'kids' , these days!)
    You're basically getting 'Half- Stack' in combo form- ready to roll!

    But too big for me!

    If that head was separate from the 4 12 cab, you could bring down aircraft

    I’ve seen that one hanging out on CL for a while. Too bad about the orange drops, but this one probably would have had dog turds instead of blue moldeds. Why people replace all the tone caps and leave the old drifts carbon comps, I’ll never know.

    I wish I needed a huge amp - it would be fun to do stuff that you need a huge amp for!

    I would love to have this. My Twin sounds fantastic, this would be even better. I’d love a super six too. You small amp guys are crazy.

    The answer is none. None more orange.

    Looks like they replaced all the caps with Orange Drops. Truthfully though, one of my better sounding Fender amps, had Orange Drops inside.
