First time poster, long time lurker. I've had my 66 VR for close to 5 years. This amp sounds great but I never get it up to the volume where it truly shines. I end up using pedals (rocket blue note) to give me the grit I need. Especially with a strat, the VR doesn't seem to break up at playing volume with a band. I recently found myself in Guitar Center playing through a 65' DR Reissue and I was floored by the tone. So I put a Craigslist ad up to trade my amp for a preferable PTP DR and I got a bite within a day for a '79 DR. My VR has replacement speakers and non-original cab (pretty beat), but the circuit is pristine. Personally I don't care about the originality of it all. The most important part (the amplifier) is fully functional and unmolested. I've had an offer for $1000 cash for it. What is my VR worth? Is the trade a good one? Thanks everyone.
