    Well...after much research and internal debate, I’ve decided to buy this ‘58 tone monster with the oval speaker rather than the ‘59 with the round speaker I was looking at....store opens at 10 and I’ll order it up then. This is only the second vintage amp I’ve ever owned in 25+ years of playing and gigging

    I had to go for this one because of the unique factor and the fact that it’s in such good shape!

    I think they’re great amps, but I might be biased because I have one from a few years later:)

    Congrats. I have the 59. Nice little amps. Mine is also my only vintage amp. Unfortunately cranking it is out of the question, so I rely on ODs. It's surprisingly clean and works best IMO with humbuckers. I had a 12ay7 in it for a while, but it made it just too polite, so I went back to a 12ax7.
