As put forth in another thread, opinions/preferences of models, given the 7591 finals, and why? Many thanks-

I just bought a `66 model in pretty good shape. It has a clean tone to rival my Twin Reverb if not a bit better. I don't know what it sounds like maxxed out, as I live in town. It seems pretty heavy for a 1x12 combo, but maybe that just means it's well made for the long haul.

Mine is a GS-12-R. It seems there were a few different tube configurations of the RR2. Mine has two 12AX7's, one 6U10 and two 7591's. It's twangy in a good way. It's best to stock up on compactrons, as there probably will never be any more made. I have spares for this amp and for my Super Champ.

Mine is a '67 as well, but the PI job is handled by part of the 6u10 and half of a 12ax7 instead of the 7199. Fantastic amp. The only downside to '67 is that a pcb is used for part of the trem circuit which will make it a small hassle to replace the trem module if/when it fails.
