    I'm trying to figure out when my ampeg 8x10 cabinet was made, can anyone help? It's got the bluish-silver grill, and four smaller casters on the bottom (no 2 big wheels with wedge/handle like the later models). The jack is just one 1/4" plug with a 4" metal circle around it, no text information. I'm thinking mid-late 60's. Any ideas on how I could get an approximate date on this thing? Thanks

    Well, a cab like that is more traditional, old-school if you will... So first you have to take it to a nice dinner... be sure to open the car door, offer to take its jacket, you know, a little chivalry... You can't just take it for a few beers and a clumsy romp on the couch… that’s for a made-in-Mexico SWR… no, not the Ampeg 8x10… ya gotta treat that lady right if you want to get something out of it….

    Once again, I apologize for my horrible sense of humor…. :rollno:
