Hey 'Peg Heads! - Eye Candy

  1. Hey guys. If an SVT and a SVT 810 is your nirvana, this might be the Holy Grail.

    Ampeg SVT custom tube bass amp and cab

    Blonde on Blonde with gold accents.

    This popped up on our local Craigslist equivalent, never seen one like it. Looks to be in great shape. Worth a click.

    Just thought I'd share.
  2. Wow! Cool!
  3. Nice! Very classy looking.

    I seem to remember. ...in the dark recesses of my withered mind. .. DJ from The Stones. .. having a white or cream colored SVT-VR. ..
    BUT. ...as always, I could be wrong!
  9. Man if this were for sale in Australia it would be going for 3 times that much at least.

    I really envy your Ampeg prices.

    If Everett Hull was still in charge of Ampeg, he'd kick that guy in the balls for making an Ampeg look like a Fender! But then again, if he were still in charge, there'd be no SVT's, so it's a tradeoff :D

    That's a pretty good price for a custom piece like that. Back in the day, SLM had somewhat of an Ampeg custom shop going where you could get designs that were off the beaten path. There's been talk of resurrecting it occasionally, but it hasn't happened on a wide scale. They did, however, install a Heyboer output transformer in my Heritage SVT-CL 4 years ago, and they got my friend Mark from www.vintage-blue.com to build a couple white Heritage SVT rigs for Will Turpin of Collective Soul a couple years ago.

    Maybe the cab for sale was left over from one of the runs for Rob Stewart. It looks like the same grille cloth and white vinyl. I don't recall the one that I saw having the gold badge.

  13. So nice!
    Ashdown also does a few custom-covered runs now & then too. Those SVT's look great. The only drawback is unless they're handled with surgical gloves, or stay in a showroom- Real World use= scuffs eventually.
    I have a Schroeder which uses "Rhino Tuff" in White- Looks great, but as Jorge warned-color sensitive. The Ampeg Tolex could be wiped down & cleaned but eventually- something's going to happen.

    As far as custom shop work done by Ampeg


    This B-15 for the Beastie Boys IIRC, is too cool for a room!:roflmao:

    That's sick! I had an old SVT that I was gonna re-tolex but I never got around to it. Should've done this to it!
