    Just became a member with this 73 amp chassis do-up, which is in need of a fair bit of TLC (in case I run out of things to do with the rest of my life). Export Version with MV.

    When I get it going, I'll probably run it as a head with my 75 Dual Showman Reverb Cab.

    Grille cloth and badge arrived in post this morning - took me 1/2 hour to cover and fit. So the cosmetics are all done bar a few replacements witchhats I still have to find.

    Do you have the reverb tank in the bottom of that head? I bought a '70 Dual Showman Reverb head last summer and I like it well enough along with a Fender 2-12 cabinet, but it could be better if it weren't so tall. Not sure if it would all fit, tank and all, in a non-reverb height Showman head cabinet, but yours looks like it does.

    Yeah the head cab is high enough that a lay-down (horizontal-amount) pan squeaks in there.
