Using the search function I've read up on all the technical differences between the two, however I'm interested to see if anyone can compare/contrast the tone and overall mojo of the current V4BH models vs. the 70s vintage V4B's. If I go with a current model will I be losing that much of the "vintage goodness" to make it worth seeking out a 70s model? I'm thinking of selling off my Ampeg B3 combo (<--anyone interested? ) and picking one of these up strictly for home practice and recording purposes, so the oft-repeated "it's not loud enough in a band setting" opinion is a non-factor for me. Anyone care to offer their opinion?
