Yesterday I went out to Long Island to pickup a very nice es-335 guitar I purchased from www.verycoolguitars.com. The owner let me plug into his personal 60's BF vibrolux reverb. (Not sure what year it was?) I have to say I got religion! That combination of the ES-335 Historic with Tom Holmes pickus into this vibrolux amp was just breathtaking, especially the edge of breakup and overdriven tones. Now I have owned a Tone King Meteor II as well as a Carr Rambler. Both of these amps have more flexability than the vibrolux reverb in terms of tayloring and shaping the tone. But neither of these newer amps could touch the overall sweatness and complexity in tone, especially the edge of breakup and overdriven sounds I was able to get out of the vibrolux. I am sure that one advantage the vibrolux reverb has is the overall adging process of 40 + plus years which contributes to its very sweet tone. I also think I played a very good vibrolux. Just wondering if anyone shares the same thoughts or different ones. Also, I would be curious if you have been able to achieve with any of the newer fender inspired amps, that same tonal sweetness with a ES-335. These are just my observations.
