    The bass is long lost (my brother's), the amp's been replaced - I learned on a '54 P into a B15N. Don't get much more classic than that.

    Not sure how "classic" it is, but in my locale playing in garage bands in the early to mid 90s it was always a cheap P bass into a giant heavy Peavey. It was the "classic" garage band sound. In my case a cheap Samick into a Peavy that seemingly weighed as much as a car. I got rid of both of those in the intervening years however.

    Thank you!

    I'm sure the definition of 'classic combination' can be fluid. Just wanted some eye candy for a Monday.

    totally with you! :thumbsup: i tried thinking back: i came up with a fretless peavey fury + a peavey TNT 115, but i doubt i'd have any pictures --- i wouldn't know where to look! and i think that was in the 80s, anyway --- maybe not a "classic" decade.
    but trust me = it was killer! :laugh:

    where are the old farts when you need 'em!?!

    No pics but in '75 as a teen I was rocking a 4001 with Rotos, and a Sunn Coliseum Lead head w 6x12 cab. And my mom made me shirts with wizard sleeves (not kidding).

    Not sure it's a classic but it's a combination I like. Another one is marmite and goat's cheese.
