    Nah, that guy comes right out and SAYS that its a reproduction of the '59 Bassman.

    Behringer doesn't have the balls to do that.

    This is hardly the first clone of the Bassman, there are literally dozens of clone makers out there. The big difference compared to Behringer is the clones cost MORE not less than the real thing.

    The only reason that Fender reissued the 59 Bassman in the first place was that boutique companies had sprung up making tweed clones to address the rabid vintage amp market.

    Go check Jack Read's web site, he makes tweed Fender clones to order too.
