... can we just be done with the "reissues are crap" talk? I'm cruising the CL and I see some ads for a old original Fender amps, and a couple have the line "get this for the price of one of the garbage reissues". Yes, my 65 DRRI is NOT a 65 DR, and will therefore sound different (like most amps and instruments, it will vary from one to the next). Yes, it has a PCB, and is not handwired. Yes, it's a mass produced, run of the mill FMIC amp. But if you can't get a good tone with a Reissue Fender amp, and if you can't keep one running for years and years with regular maintenance and care, the issue may be you and not the amp. If you have an original, kudos and bragging rights to you. If you rock a Reissue, kudos and bragging rights to you as well. There. I said it. Rant over.
