    I was going to say my 80’s Ibanez Artist in a tie with a Fender Twin Reverb. The cyber twin below is a close second.

    My Vox AC15C2 weighs 70lb. Is there a heavier 15w amp anywhere?

    I bought a used Les Paul Custom in 1970.
    It was easily the heaviest guitar I've owned. I was 20 years old and good shape.
    I knew to use both hands getting the LPC out of the case.
    It was a favorite guitars that was stolen a couple of years later.

    I have no recollection.

    If they'd played there a couple of years later, we'd have had an in-house B3 by then.

    As a night will approach 12:00am a Fender Twin with JBLs will begin to increase in mass. Sometimes forming an accretion disc of beer bottles, ash trays and other debris. Occasionally this will result in a Type 1A Super Hernia.

    Makes me think of the old George Carlin routine of his tryIng to stump his Catholic teachers re: religion. “Hey faddah, if God is so all powerful, can he make a rock so heavy that even he can’t lift? heh-heh-heh”

    I recall when I was a wee tyke we would go to the circus & when the elephants dropped a load it looked like bowling balls exploding when they hit the ground. Those things must have been really heavy.

    I don't remember what this Univox amp & speaker cab weighed, but at least they put caster wheels on the damn thing. I wasn't even a 'bedroom player' when I had this monster, but it sure as hell could visually dominate a living room....

    I think that was from his "A Place For My Stuff" album, a major contributor to my fondness for the absurd. Carlin had spectacular delivery & timing.

    Sweetvine were one of my favorite bands as a kid! Their guitar player's aunt worked in n a factory with me when I was 18 and she told me all about them. Bought their CD twice, wore it out twice. Can't find it anymore. I wish they would have lasted.

    When Facebook first came around, I found the lead singer (Hans) and the aforementioned B3 player (Gary Frank) and befriended them. Hans was in the SF area at the time, playing with a group called Hans and The Hot Mess.

    They had a Facebook group at one time where they released two previously unreleased songs, both of which were excellent. And they had great ideas about doing a second album, but it never came about. Hans actually agreed to hear a couple of my songs as prospects for the album, but I never got it together and never sent him anything.

    Hans may be one of my favorite lyricists of all time. And yes, that album is a top 10 favorite of mine. It has stood the test of time.
