    64 Custom Deluxe Reverb Handwired and I have the Quilter which can get super loud.
    I’m probably just going to keep the Telecaster.

    It's interesting you say that the RI super doesn't sound like a super. Maybe it's the speakers? Or black face vs. silver face? I read a review in one of the guitar magazines a few years back that played
    a vintage and reissue side-by-side, and said that while they could discern a slight difference that they both sounded really great. Some people assert that the magazine articles can be a bit biased because
    they don't want to tick off their advertisers, but I've also heard lots of people say that circuit board aside, when it comes to sound that the reissues sound quite good.

    Here's a link to the article-- it was in Guitar Player a couple years back. A very well done comparo, in my opinion.

    Yes. I got one - always had a load of them

    And currently other 3 supers - '64; '68 drip; '70 (you can say I know super reverbs, been playing them for 40 years)

    While I do like the DRRI & TRRI; & they do a great job, the Super RI - to my ears sounds nothing like a Super.

    Guitar Player article was riddled with mistakes you'd think they'd know better

    Voila

    that is interesting..we had this in the amp shp..was going to have it made like my other amps & PTP it...It was so lively sounding...iEvery other amp i have is HW. Yesterday was amp choice day for next song. It won out again .its wonderful on its own for clean & it really shines in edge of breakup. Maybe i got lucky..saw it at GC in Towson MD & got it for $600..took it strait to tech...expecting a full re build.Super's really are amazing amps

    I’m surprised no one here caught the fact that I was told this was a 2000 Super Reverb and the reissue Super Reverb didn’t come out until 2001.
    I just found that out myself.
