    I'm courious about the style of blueline graphics you've seen.
    I was at Mike's guitars in Cincy today ( insane stuff there) and
    looked at two blueline SVT heads there.
    One had it's graphics done in a pastel robins egg blue.
    It was shallowly etched into the face plate.

    The second one there was more of a greenish blue again
    the etching was very shallow.

    The graphics on mine are deeply etched and
    the blue has a rich anodized look to it.

    Can I get Blue line owners to post a close-up pic
    of your faceplate.

    It's the kind of difference you see and makes you wonder why.

    Wow...you own Doug Ingle's SVT? Did he ever play bass for IB or did he use it for other purposes?

    Regardless, pretty cool piece of R'nR memorabilia...

    Thanks! He used to play organ through it. Found it in a local music store in 87 or so for $650 with the cab. Just put a buttload of money into it, though. Still isn't working right, but when it does...HOLY COW!

    Your is very odd.
    I've never seen knobs like those before . Also I don't see graphics under the knobs themself. The ones that mark positions of the knobs.
    I assume you have 6146's in yours.
    I'd love to see what your pots are dated.

    Mine origanaly had 6550's. (my tranys dated to 70/71) The seller told me the origanal knobs were stolen backstage at a Vegas gig and he'd instaled these replacements from Radio Shack. This amps at my tech's now or I'd double check, but I'm pretty sure these knarly knobs are simply covering up the graphics.

    Sorry, no pix, but mine looks identical to Jimmy's. I have dated it to '72 but it could be a year earlier. It uses 6550s and has the same rounded knobs, lettering and colouring.
