Well, a blackface Bassman isn't exactly what I was thinking that I was going to do for my next build, but it's an amp that I've always wanted to have and use as pedal platform for traditional and modern country. I'm probably going to build it as a 1x12 combo. I know vintage AB165s are relatively inexpensive, but this way I get what I want out of it and I'm not modding a vintage amp. I'm leaning towards using a ClassicTone 40-18029 PT and using the 610v taps SS rectified with 5881s. The real question is what to do with the bass channel... Liverpool, Plexi, 5F6A?
