    Crickets...'cause asking for that kinda help here is like asking a pyromaniac to help put out a fire. Buy it and play it loud!:p

    Uncle Doug (amp repair guy on YouTube) called it an abomination. Does that help?

    I bought one a couple of months ago and I love it. It's perfect for me. I'm playing guitar at least 4 times as much since I got this amp.

    12" gives you tons of options in the future. A modern Jensen 10 usually sounds like crap.

    You picked the wrong forum.
    You don’t want it. You need it.
    Please don’t deprive yourself of something you absolutely need.

    Princetons are awful, terrible amps... Fortunately, I am well set up to dispose of crappy gear that nobody likes. I'll even cover the cost to ship it to my... uh... facility. Yeah, just send me a PM when you realize what a horrible mistake you've made. :-D

    Let me see if I can do it.

    “Buying a Blackface Princeton dressed in Tweed is silly/stupid/an oxymoron/laughingstock-material.”

    Did any of those help stop you?

    Yeah, I've looked at those in the past. I've been able to keep GAS at bay thus far, but that is a nice looking amp.

    Why on earth you'd want a near-perfect amp that sounds like all of your favorite recordings from the 60s and 70s, while looking sexy as hell and offering all kinds of versatility in the studio, at home, or on stage, alone or with an entourage of pedals, and which was basically built for your Tele to stick its cable in...

    ...I will never understand.

    F**k Princetons. Especially the 12" speaker ones which are even more perfect.
