    +1 It's at least 1 better than the 370 logo!

    Agreed! Always dug the 371 look more.

    Gotta admit, when I fired up the 370-371-301 rig a few weeks back, it was emotional... lol. Still an amazing thing!

    Wow, I can’t remember who is in charge of anything anymore. Maybe no one atm.
    In the mean time use your first equipment photo post as your ‘member number’ and consider yourself one of us!
    Same for you FranF

  7. FWIW there is a 360/361 combo listed on the Seattle CL for $800 right now. 'Looks like they could use a good bit of TLC!

  10. Oh yea! I wish I had my water slide decal. It was on my 1965 Buick Specials back window. And...I sold my cab for a while but got it back a year later...during that time I threw away my “Lifetime Warranty” card...:banghead:
    The banner is great!

    Thanks again for your advise regarding my blown CW 187. Reconing didn't pan out and as somebody on a German bass forum did put the Eminence into his 301 cab and highly recommend it, I finally gave it a go.

    I also changed the jack and cable while I was at it and after a short test drive to make sure it works I'm quite pleased with the results! Should get more time tomorrow, looking forward it!

    I will likely be posting sound of my own ACC gear for sale in coming weeks. Need to recover some space.

    Being a (retired) residential/commercial electrician, I sketched out this drawing showing my plan to upgrade my '71 150b from the two-wire death cap line cord to modern three wire grounded. In theory, it's viable, but I just want to make sure I'm not missing a trick or two, or forgetting any detail that would make it not kosher in the amp itself. Ultimately, at the last step of this drawing, I'll have the neutral white going direct to one of the two black transformer wires, and the fused, switched and pilot-lit side going to the other black. My goal is to keep the convenience outlet working, the pilot obviously, and the ground switch and death cap totally disabled. Look good? ACC 150b sketch.jpg Thx!

    You are more qualified than I am but that is how I bypassed mine. At the time that I did mine I found this on the interweeb:

    Did the same thing on an old Dynacord Gigant Tube amp.
