    I wish they would reissue some of the Blackface or Silverface era amps in hand wired form vs. only tweed style amps.

    I'm saying: PCB '65 re-issue vibrolux. Not this "custom" one they have now.

    I bet they'd sell a bunch.

    "once they're gone they're not comin' back"

    Halelujah! Neever liked 'em to begin with.

    Interesting to hear Fender now teaming up with Mercury Magnetics, should have known it was only a matter of time...

    Thats a great idea, electrons don't give a *&%k. Could sell for less than a Hot Rod Deluxe too...

    "Once all the Excelsior models are sold they aren't coming back."

    I'm glad because my brown one will now hold it's value better. I think there was just not enough profit in these for Fender, especially the original brown one for $299. I recommend that you get one while you can!

    Also, I had a tweed Bandmaster clone and they definitely have the "Won't Get Fooled Again" sound!

    The brown ones will continue to be made. The Pro was limited.

    Fender owns Gretsch, so...all in the family, I guess.

    Was talking to a guy today who was a Fender Sales Rep for many years (he now has a small shop). He told me that Fender was re-issuing several silver faced amps including the Princeton Reverb. The amps will be produced in their factory in Mexico

    I just can't figure out why Fender can't produce a hand-wired small BF combo...obviously from the seven million posts all over the internet, and the price of vintage Fender combos on auction sites, etc...these are what great numbers people want.

    I would gladly pay for a Fender amp that was made just like the old ones. I buy guitars that are made just like the old ones all the time. Vintage is great for some, but I would be happy to buy a new Fender of the same quality as the vintage amps, cabinets, speakers, wiring, etc. I'm not knocking the reissues or anything, they sound wonderful, but why not give people the option?

    Probably the very best selling amp of all time the Deluxe Reverb and yet no hand wired custom shop edition.
    Maybe they feel like there are enough boutique builders taking care of that market ???
    Or a vintage one in great condition can still be had for 2k or less (I got my 66 for 1600)
    and it would have to sell for around that to make a profit ?
