    Even if it's just for show, I would love having that as my rig (as long as I didn't have to move it)! Very classy looking!

    And of course, Conrad Korsch rockin the USA Lakland 44-60 (Joe Osborn) bass in sonic blue sounds great as well. Awesome bass tone!

    Very cool! And it's a nice surprise to have the bass so audible in a YouTube live vid.... fantastic playing.

    Yeah, there was a time you could get Ampeg to do custom stuff like that. They keep threatening to set up a department to do one-off stuff like that again, but they're still working on how best to implement it.

    Interesting. I seem to recall many years ago when a person could order an SVT rig in white.

    Ya, I believe Phil (canshaker) who used to play bass in Filter had a white SVT rig before he defected ;) That stuff was done by a custom shop in St. Louis that Ampeg would hire out. Now that they're near Seattle, I don't know if they have a resource like that.

    But if someone in Seattle does have a resource like that, let them know and make a bid!

    A dear friend was in a touring act in the 70s, 80s, and 90s (that shall remain nameless). They took it a step further. They had actual Marshall cabs that had been gutted (backs removed), and they put hinges in between them with corresponding latches on the opposite sides. Come tear-down time, the empty Marshall "clam shells" served as road cases for amps, drums, etc.

    The flat back SVTs were real, though. ;)

    Years ago Angela Instruments used to sell used empty Marshall 412 cabs. The cost was low enough that the cabs were worth buying and loading with speakers. I'm sure that Marshall still sells them that way if you want them but there are less expensive alternatives available these days.
