    Hope this is the right forum, but I couldn't decide. I just snagged a new amp from the gc labor day sale. When I got home I realized that my new amp and bass have a very similar motif going. Both things look retro but are relatively new in reality.

    My new Ampeg b100 and Reverend definately project a real old school look and sound. Best of all I got the amp at a nice price. I am really digging the way this pair looks and sounds.

    Here are a couple of pics. Anybody else with a unique looking setup should post a pic too.

    That's old skool cool. If you don't mind, how much did you pay for that amp?? I didn't even know about GC's labor day giveaways.

    That is an awesome setup. Really vintage. The only guitar that could match that setup is the plaid danelectro I saw once in a guitar store. That was a sweet looking "6 string piccolo bass" :rolleyes: :D

    The amp was $369 and it was new in box too. To be honest, I didn't even know about the sale when I went in. I went into that location because they had a used b50r(12" version) that I wanted to try for $299 and when I walked in it was crazy. They had a five-string spector rebop for $480 that i am kicking myself for not buying to sell on ebay. They had a whole slew of stuff on sale but I didn't get a chance to look at much since I was in a hurry. They also had a few MIM fretless jazzes for $299 that I wish I could have bought, but I just couldn't rationalize it.

    Wow, nice. I love the look of that bass. Very retro indeed. Too bad Reverend's discontinuing basses :/
