    Everybody is cowboy! :hyper:

    Looks like a fairly big combo, and is the top cut trapazoid?

    The guitar player has a couple of nice fenders to play that tele thru, too.

    Not sure about the bass amp, but that's Jesse Ed Davis on guitar, I think...
     
  3. If it's '68, that's too early for a V4-B by a couple of years, according to my Ampeg book.

    maybe my eyes were playing tricks on me, but looked like a head/speaker cab to me, not a combo... but i was more into the music than the pictures... hehehe

    thanks for the link- that seriously made my night.

    Looked like a Marshall type head to me,maybe a Sound City and a 4-12 cabinet.It sure had the tube distortion thing going on.Taj was great then and still is.

    was it a bassman? I didn't look closely, but i figured it was a showman (or was that a dual showman? eh, whatever... heheh)
     
  9. Whatever! That's not the amp that the bass player is playing out of. It's behind him. It matches up with the cab so well, it looks like a combo. Can't tell any markings on it, though.
