    it says Series 6 on it.. if that help, i think its full name would be "Trace elliot Series 6 715".. and it have an exit for phones (how many 150 watt amps have that? :confused: )

    Trace Series Six were in the line during the late 80's, and very early 90's, before the SMX range which lasted until the Gibsonization of 1998.
    I have noticed that a lot of existing stock made before the transition went out to shops after Gibson took over, so sometimes the line can be a bit blurry as to what is preferable.
    You have a fine combo!!!
