    Is there a way to determine when my Ampeg SVT Bass AMP (300 watt) was made?

    I bought it used in 1990. Can it be determined by the serial number? Other SVTs I have seen have Blue lettering and lines in the front of head. Mine is black, serial number starts with 000. Your help is appreciated.

    You'll get more responses if you post in the "Amps" section of the forum.

    This isn't appropriate for this forum. Moved to Amps.

    Is the whole head black or just the lettering? It's tough to date SVT's from the early 70's to the mid-80's. A pic can give us a general idea and we could tell you what era it was made, but the best way to date it is to check the pot codes.
