  2. Looks exactly like my old '69. Wish I still had it. These cabs sound incredible.

    Ah yes. I sent you something but can't recall what.

    MN, NY, West coast? On average you're moving to Iowa.

    Anyway, bump.

    Hey Mr. Dialog - you seem very into the old Ampegs there. I've got one of these as well - from all appearances, it's the same as this - straightback, on a caster platform, same nameplate on the back, same positioning of the luggage handles, and 32-ohm CTS drivers (awww!). Best cab I've owned. Mine, however, is devoid of any tolex whatsoever. It was painted black when I bought it back in the late 80s.

    Do you know if they were ever sold this way, or is this just a case of that stuff shredding over time and being eventually removed?

    Also, GLWTS!

    As an Ampeg lover, I can tell that they never sold a new one painted rather than tolex covered in the time period. Those were so popular, thousands of bassist used them and dragged them continually. I've bought a couple that the tolex was is shreds. So, I recovered those in correct tolex. Amazing looks. :cool:

    Ahhhh...I dig. Thanks for the info, Oren - guess mine's quite the beater, then.

    Tolex, shmolex!:D

    Could be a good thing - meaning that it was good enough to be used and used and used and used. Covering then becomes a matter of tastes. I'm a purist in those matters and either repair or replace. :cool:

    Are you willing to ship this monster? Or is it local sale only?

    EDIT: I just now saw your post above about shipping. Sorry for the duplicate post.
