    I've been debating on weather to replace my handle ('57)... but for some reason, I love the look of this ugly thing...

    Here's my "tweed" with a Custom Shop '65 NOS Strat and a good ol Hammond M100.

    The tweed is a 50 watt dual rectifier 5E3 clone. I run it into a 212 cab loaded with '56 Magnavox P12N's. (Identical to the Jensens.)

    Not sure if you meant my amp, but its a month old. Needs some miles on it to compare with some of the beautiful old timers on this thread. Sounds absolutely killer!

    My tweed is not Fender ... a '58 Gibson GA-40. Pale linen tweed, pretty much hanging off the sides. This amp has been everywhere, done it all, and sounds it:

    This is my baby...And that is Levi on top of it. My first child and the only grandson out of four siblings. He's competing with 6 grand daughters. This was taken two weeks ago and one of the best pictures I've ever seen. Just wanted to share with you guys.

    Yea he's been a really good baby. Sleeps alot which is a good thing. We got lucky. I should add that he pee'd in my wifes hands, which spilled on the tweed while trying to take the pic without the blanket. I've always been very picky about my stuff but for some reason when it was my own son peeing on the amp, i was ok with it:) Figure it adds to the tone!
