    I have an SWR Workingman's 4004 head and 4 x 10T cabinet. I purchased both used. I have heard that Fender purchased SWR at some point. I've been shopping for a second cabinet, and I notice that the new pieces indicate they were "made in Mexico." My equipment makes no reference to any place except California.

    I've found a used SWR Workingman's 210T that seems to be the same vintage as my gear, and a brand new SWR Workingman's 210T "made in Mexico" for $50 more.

    Here's my question: 1) is my current gear "pre-Fender"? 2) Is there any reason (s) to give one the nod over the other?

    Thanks,

    David
