I've got a Feb. of 1965 Deluxe Reverb that I've had about 10 years. I was very stoked when I first got it. Did a cap job, 3 prong conversion, replaced a few drifted resistors, got it in great shape. Played it a lot for 4-5 years. Then I fell in love with Brownface amps. Got an original 1962 Deluxe, and built a clone Princeton. Haven't played the Blackface Deluxe much the last 5 years, just occasionally to keep the caps formed. Woke up early this morning and pulled the Blackface out of the closet. Played it about 2 hours and it sounds great, hard to believe it's 54 years old. Think I'll keep it out awhile.
