A Tweed Deluxe clone that I owned for a while. I believe it might have been a Weber kit. I bought it third hand for a great price. Sadly, I couldn't get a sound out of it that I liked, so I sold it back to the guy I bought it from, who had had second thoughts, (He sold it again afterwards anyway.)
My '59 Supro Super 1606. Not tweed covered, so I guess, technically it doesn't belong, but, hey, it is tweed era. This one I kept!
My little Gretsch G5222. Not 50's era, but tweed covered.
I find the overdrive to be smoother and sweeter without the flub and fizz I got from the 5e3. I built the 5d3 with one input channel cathode biased (as in the stock 5d3 circuit) and the second input grid leak biased (more like a 5c3). The cathode biased input has more headroom that a 5e3 and the grid leak channel has more drive so it gives me the best of both worlds.
Thank you. I will PM you some questions.
It's as simple as I am. Guitar plugs into the front. Speaker and power to the rear. Switch on, turn up, enjoy.
I just received a pine 2X10 cabinet I loaded with a pair of Webber 10A125 speakers to use with my Allen 5E7 amp head! Now I have a poor mans 5F4 Super! Wow, this is some combination! Thanks John
The wide panel is my own build. Cabinet by Larry Rodgers. They spill out of the 50's a little, but tweed none the less, including the two brownfaces. The two chassis are Gibson GA-25 and GA-88S. These all range from '48 to '52, and the brownfaces are both '62. Excuse the Boogie on the left.
Tweed much? Yes, thank you.
What kind of lapsteel is that?
My late grandfather had a "Loney"(?) That I'm supposed to be selling for my grandmother. It's the only other lapsteel ive seen in that color. I think it was a supro/valco relable thing?
And yes, the mesa looks like a kid trying to talk to grownups in that picture
That's a NIOMA. I had never heard of it when a friend left it at my place. The original case is just to the right of the picture. There was printing inside that said 1948. Kinda cool because three of those amps are 1948. The thing is immaculate and sounds great.
5f11 Vibrolux I built earlier this year.
Ok, it's just my 1999 Blues Jr., but it looks cool! ( and sounds pretty b*tchin'- really!)
* and it's not even tweed- beat-up Tolex
Yikes! Just noticed the my '55 Deluxe (lower left) is certainly newer than '52.....
That one caught my eye first -- nice one!
