    I have never seen anything like that. It could be either fake or modded.

    Za-zingggg! When did Ampeg put the Ampeg "A" on that other side of the cab? :confused:

    Sure is a shallow cab IF that is a bass cab.

    What's with the cutout in the lower left corner of the front board? Is that a hole?

    THe thing looks pretty sketchy to me. Certainly isn't stock if it is an Ampeg.

    Its a fake, don't even waste ur time or money please!:oops:

    BTW who is selling this "so called" Ampeg? Is there a site or email?
     
  6. no site..somebody who claims to quit playing bass..I just wondered cauz I did not know that ampeg made white cases.. he said that it was a '70 or '80 amp ..
     
  7. I have now also post the question at the site of ampeg, I think they (or the ampeg-freaks) can give the right question :)

    It's strange that on the site from ampeg, there isn't a single "white" amp to find ...
    and the ampeg-symbol on the right is also very strange
     
  8. Note also how the Ampeg logo badge doesn't actually fit correctly - it looks like there was another badge there that was replaced.

    Looks like a guitar cab to me...

    That thing screams "home-made," IMO.

    The reason why I say it’s a fake is because I have seen something very very very similar. Instead of the Ampeg photo copied logo being clued onto a “fence grill” the person had an SWR Badge affixed to the same “fence grill”. It could be the same person. I forgot the person’s email but last October this guy sent me the same pic claiming it was a SWR prototype cabinet. I am wondering where you got this picture????? Is this person trying to actually sell you that cabinet? I’m very curious and suspicious…
     
  11. It's a guy from the netherlands..
    he sells the amp on a ebay - kind of website ..

    his email : homesick@wanadoo.nl <homesick@wanadoo.nl>
     
  12. It looks kind of like an SVT-410HE, but completely stripped down.. wouldn't bet my €€€ 's on it..
