    Did you try flowers and candy?
  3. Late 60's/early to late 70's is my guess.

    The blue graphics indicate that it was made btw '68 and '72.

    Go to google and type in vintage ampeg parts and look for a website with "fliptop" in the URL. There you will find links to vintage Ampeg info including one that gives Date of Manufacture info

    If you're dating an Ampeg, I'd say you need help, yes.

    About a year ago I scored a mint condition 1967 B-15-N. It might be the best amp purchase I ever made. That amp has a warm, lush, buttery tone that is amazing. The new B-15R's don't sound anything like these old classics.
