    As a reminder, I got hit in the head really hard while mountain biking when I was 18.

    Here it is. 1982! Can you feel the 80’s mullets?

    The cab has a Celestion G12H Anniversary Speaker in it. Do speakers celebrate their anniversaries? o_O

    Found it at Music Go Round. Gave them an Ibanez acoustic to cut the price down a lot.

    It sounds brown. The rig is browner. Is browner a word? It’s more brown. It has more brown characteristics. Browner! Nice rich overtones. Nice crunch. I think it a good speaker.

    The cab, head and guitar are all Fender proctucts so that’s dandy.

    I should put my high school diploma on the wall next it. Damn I’m old.

    What can brown do for you? :twisted:

    If it helps, John, you're 11 years younger than me. My high school rig would be a Harmony Silhouette H19 and...I don't even remember what crappy little amp.

    After you put on the spandex and puffy blouse you have to hang upside down to apply aqua-net hairspray.

    Big hair and spandex for that 1982 MTV look.

    :cool:

    Cool rig. Love it.

    Now for a little, “Ya Really Got Me” Eddie.

    Congrats!

    My high school rig would be a Black-with-white-guard American standard Tele with a rosewood fretboard plugged into a 4x12 Rivera-era Fender concert (man, that beast was heavy) via a rat2.

    I thought it was going to be a padded Kustom cab. I guess we went to high school at different times. Very nice though.
    Thanks john

    That amp and cab do not really look 80s to me, both the size and cosmetics.

    That's a fun exercise! My 1982 rig would consist of the Epiphone Sheraton pictured in my profile - which I still have - and was brand new at the time ... and a Roland JC50. No pedals.

    Right? Maybe he means 2080?

    80s would be Marshall heads and lots of 4x12 cabs.

    But....congrats anyway! I imagine dive bombs and pinch harmonics will be flying out of that set up.

    I could buy a decent van for what my HS amp costs now.

    Looks like the most perfectly-matched rig in the world, if you ask me.

    I’m feeling ancient to ancestral. My high school rig was a ‘65 Jazzmaster into an Ampeg Gemini VI, both bought new in ‘65. If I could go back in time, I’d grab them up and bring them back with me.
