    Would you buy the same exact Tele in a different color?

    Got my tax return and just got GAS

    1961 Bassman circuit identification?

    Very interesting ! I have a '61 Bassman head like this I bought in 1980 and had left it in storage up until early this year when I decided to take it to a tech to make sure it is playable .

    What countries and/or states have you lived in?

    Music Man Amps

    All true , to me Eric seemed more fluid and sometimes Robbie looked like he was fighting it . I've just been a fan of Clapton's since the Bluesbreakers days . You're right , no real point . Cheers !

    Music Man Amps

    I have a 212HD 130 I bought new in 1976 , has the phase inverter tube . I gigged with it into the middle '80s . Then I downsized and got a 112RD 50 which I still have too . Nothing moved air like that 130 to me .
