    I've got an early Victoria Bassman that has been played like crazy. Its sounds incredible. Its dated 7-95 on the inside and is signed by Mark and says "this is the one". It looks like a real 59 due to the wear. Is this amp worth more than a new one due to the "relic factor" I need to come up with some cash and I'm thinking about selling it.

    It is not worth anything more due to the wear.

    Except in the case of someone who cares that it looks "worn" in the right way.

    I mean, look at the SRV strat, I wonder how many folk have gotten a higher price for their old, worn to hell, sunburst strat because it had "that look".

    I wouldn't pay more for the wear and tear, but I might actually like the amp a little more because of the worn look. Other folks, I'm sure there are some that would pay for it.

    For a used Vicky, I doubt it unless you find someone who's looking for an "early one"...

    I like it! That's how you relic an amp. The REAL way.

    That would make a great amp for auditioning. You'd probably get the nod before you even got tuned up.

    exactly. It's strange the response I get when I walk into a gig or jam with this amp. :MMM

    Although I'm in no position to buy it, I just wanted to chime in and say that that is one gorgeous amp!

    Don't know. I was thinking of putting it on Ebay just to see what it would bring. Feel free to make an offer.
