    I have a Basset Hound (pure silver chassis, pure silver wiring, every other upgrade available) and matching 4x10 cab on their way haha.
    I'll have pics and vids when it gets here next week.

    No, we're all poor! Sounds like a very nice rig, I bet it will sound "like buttah!"

    I've dropped some money on gear but nothing like that. That's over the top. I wouldn't have even thought about buying a used a Basset Hound at those prices. ($500 filter cap upgrade? :confused:)

    I hope so!

    I totally agree. The original owner paid 4k for the silver chassis on top of everything else. Insane...

    Head is here! It sounds and looks amazing.
    Came with an Alessandro instrument and speaker cable.
    A great, padded carrying case.
    The power cable is pure silver too, but I'm not sure if it's made my Alessandro or not.
    I'm going to call them in the morning and see what they can tell me about the amp and cab.
    Alessandro is actually not too far from me, which is great.
    I'll definitely take it there for routine check up :)

    Wow, you got the special one way cable too, eh?

    Looks cool, but where's the cab?

    I couldn't fit the cab in my car. Package was too large, but it's getting delivered tomorrow with a '68 Guild Starfire II

    That one was at Bass San Diego for a while. The last time I saw it, it was at Guitar Center La Mesa. Bitchen-looking and -sounding rig. If you ever want to sell it, you might want to see what the price of silver is. Melting the chassis down could be an option.
