    That's a pretty mint head. It doesn't get much cleaner than that. Nice going, bro!

    You should love this amp!

    Mine was an early '73.

    I was seriously watching the Blue Line available this week, but finally decided to go for the Reeves 225.

    Thanks guys for the comments. Glad no one said I paid too much which I don't think I did but still. I know I will love this mutha. I have one of the Skunkwork team SVT'S as well as two late 70's SVT'S. I will need to take some pics of my Ampeg amps. All vintage and in great shape and yes I do play them every weekend. Thanks again everyone!!!!!

    IMO that '72 is easily worth $2200.00. and especially since its so darn mint. and when you consider that a new VR sells for around $2K, it makes it even a better deal.

    Ya, I don't think it's too much, either. Personally, though, I'd have gone for one that's more of a beater because I'm cheap. But if you want mint, you have to pay for it, and if you ever try to sell it, the next owner will pay even more, so it all works out in the wash.

    Beautiful!
    Fantastic condition. You REALLY have to go the rest of the way and get a Flat back cabinet.
    Way to go!

    I was looking at that one (and all the other ones out there) last night. I'm really itching to get my hands on one and you guys aren't helping. Congrats.

    I hear ya - Every Sunday morning I get what I call SVT back -
    I do have a roadcase that has wheels with a telescope handle, kind of like the portabass cabs which in my oppinion is a must have if you own a SVT.

    Congrats nicky, that things amazing.
     

  20. Nice! Like Jimmy said, take care of it and you’ll probably be able to sell it for more than you paid for it someday. If you’re going to do any gigging, I’d for sure get a road case for it.
