    I'm so pumped, just picked up my first SWR Redhead (new) for a nice 600 bucks on a closeout sale. MAN, does this thing have some guts to it!

    First SWR I've ever played, and at that price, with that tone, no way was I going to let it walk.

    I don't think I'll ever need another amp, although I might invest in an additional cab just for some larger venues.

    Should be a Super Redhead then, no?

    Sure; I get that. Some stores have stock that's not exactly "this years," but dang, that's 6 years old, at newest, now.

    In case there's any confusion, first there was the Redhead, then the Super Redhead, then the final version was called just "Redhead" once again.
