    It looks like the new front but it says its made in the USA. Does anyone know when these were made?

    Every Peavey I ever had had the date somewhere in the serial number. Nice amp.

    Is this a Classic 30 II right before they moved the manufacturing to China?

    Yeah manufacturing location 03 was Meridian Mississippi.

    They changed to this look around 2005-6. At this time Peavey had only moved the Transtube line to China and all the tube amps were still made in America. I kind of quit paying attention to Peavey since 2009 but it seems I heard maybe the Classic series went to China by 2014-15 but I honestly don't know the year for sure. But based on what little my eyes could decipher from your photo it is made in the US.

    I had an older version of C-30.
    It was a good amp.
    Lot's of "better" amps came and went in my life but that Peavey stayed put.
    I sold it to a friend and bandmate a few years back when I decided to focus on acoustic.
    He still has it.
    It still sounds great.

    Good amp, congratulations.

    I had an older one that I had gigged off and on for a long time, and I sold it last year. That was a mistake.

    Nice little amp. I really loved mine with Humbuckers; it just did something special with a Les Paul Studio I had.
