Seems like every time I get on Reverb or Craigslist, I end up in a search for a vintage Ampeg Reverb Rocket. I tried curing my Ampeg ambitions by picking up a nice, clean '90's J12T. It's a cool little amp that produces some sweet sounds, especially with my Dearmond-equipped Gretsch. But it's only lit the GAS fire for a vintage model. The 30 watt Heritage R12R seems like the holy grail amp to me, although I'd never shell out the $3k they're asking for one. I also read an article about Reverbrockets in Vintage Guitar Mag and it fanned the flames. I just put a bid in on a clean-looking mid-60's R12RT. Originally marketed as an 18 watter, listed as 22 watts by the seller, and estimated by the tube experts to be more like 20-25 watts based on the 7591 power tubes. It would seem like a great fit to my collection, but why do I obsess over these little buggers??
