    A huge congrats on that Pro Danny!
    With two 5E3s that are different enough to give up something each on their own and the Tweed Pro I would have to pick the Pro if I had to but the others would be hard as all get out to see part, they are all close to my musical heart.

    The Tremolus and early Deluxe would be the same way but that Pro is tops and a nice find.

    Collect 'em all!

    Nice! What brand is the 5e3 clone? I played a deluxe in à store... Great sound and very resonsive. The Champ is too but more in a "i'm hinna scream an jump up and bite your head off" but in a nice kinda way...!? ;-)

    Made by a guy named Pete Bradt. Yeah the Champ has less meat on its tone, and the cleans are not as nice I find.

    Im really liking the GE's and RCA's. Its the classic tweed tone youve heard in many classics.

    I am also a big 5E5A Pro Fanatic, here is my 1959/60 Pro.
    The Tube Chart says IJ, but some of the original tubes have 04/1960 tubes,
    so it may have left the factory in early 1960.

    That's a beautiful Pro. I had a '51 wide panel and always lusted for narrow panel. Seems to me the later Pro's had a tad more horsepower and a mid knob. I've been using a '59 Super clone for a long time now.
