    Bought a floor model with a -20% discount online. Got it home today. This is a limited edition 68 CDR in Electric Blue tolex with a Celestion Creamback G12M-65 12" speaker. Sounds really wonderful and compares tone wise to my 70s Vibrolux Reverb. Handwired sockets, 5AR4 reciifier. Love how it's so touch sensitive.

    Wow! Nice! You got enough to play the "Blues." I have been looking at that amp in a different color....still saving for it. Nicely done.

    P90s sound amazing with the amp. So happy all my guitars sound good through this great little tone machine.

    Is that amp hand wired or a PCB amp?

    The 68 Custom series are PCB but with hand wired tube sockets and birch/pine cabs. The Deluxe has a tube rectifier some of the other models are solid state rectifiers (if that matters to you). They've done some interesting mods such as adding a Bassman tonesack in the Custom channel, verb and trem in both channels - which is why they are called "Custom" or vintage modified series..

    They've managed to nail the chime / sparkle of earlier hand-wired amps. I've compared my CDR to my hand-wired Vibrolux Reverb.

    Mine is a Limited Edition in blue tolex and ships with a 12" Celestion G12M-65 Creamback
