Old dude here..wanting to go out in in a blaze of glory. in the bottom end of my 6th decade, I have NEVER owned a new tube amp. Think I am gonna get one one of these bad boys, NEW. Strictly a bedroom player, I know the Princeton is all I need, however, the Bassman is just so bad ass, and not that much more $$, it would be a helluva lot more fun and look so COOL with my Teles hanging near by. But, a tweed Princeton is pretty cool! What say you? Please no "buy used" or "XYX" is a better amp. I get it. But my old deteriorating mind is made up on these two.
