    I made a post earlier about my grandfather’s ‘66 Jazz bass and his/it’s story. I found out that he gigged it with this acoustic 450 amp and was wondering what people think of them. Thanks!

  2. They're OK. I used one gigging for about 25 years or so.

    You cant go wrong with any older Acoustic gear, IMO.

    I always thought that the 450 and its sister 470 were the warmest, most tube-like sounding Acoustic heads.

  5. I had one “back then”, sounded good but could have used a little more power.
