    What's your playing situation; at home, band, jams, etc? Does one lend itself to what you do more than the other?

    I do not understand your singular usage of the word "amps."

    I'd say hold off on selling them. Given the currently economic situation it's going to be more difficult to find a buyer without severely discounting your price.

    Selling one of those amps to save less than half a cubic yard in space is pointless. You should immediately apologize to both your amps for thinking of selling one, and never speak of it again.

    The answer to your question lies in custom furniture. Build a table. Place one amp under the table and one on top of it. If the tweed is too loud, consider a swap to a low efficiency speaker. It's a problem when you don't have an amp. It's a creative opportunity if you have two great ones.

    I played the tweed Blonde last night with a bit of Strymon reverb and some slight Joyo overdrive pedal. Man, either I had a really good buzz, or it really sounded good. Probably both.

    By the way, I don't need the money or the room per se, I was going to move one and buy a Gretsch 6120 of some sort. I had a trade going, but the guy couldn't part with his Brian Setzer Smoke at the last minute.

    I'll probably end up keeping them both. And, I'm a home jammer, campfire entertainer, song and dance man like Dylan.

    I'd keep the amps. A new guitar can be saved for - and 2 guitars likely won't expand versatility as much as 2 amps. In my experience, knowing a guitar well (spending a ton of time with one) offers more versatility than adding another instrument...

    Then again, if you don't have a bcakup guitar, it is work having!

    In any case, they are both killer amps, and if you do decide to part, it would be a hard choice. I guess it comes down to whether you have more use for Brittish-style tones, or for American tweed tones.

    You should just keep them both.

    They aren't that big. Keep both and only use one at a time. When you get sick of one you can swap them out.

    Haha, posting here about selling anything is pointless. Just put one under the bed and pretend that you sold it. Then when you are regretting having sold it (inevitable), go pull it out from under the bed and pretend that you just bought it! Honeymoon all over again!!
