I'm just wondering what the general consensus is at this point. Personally, I'd say I greatly prefer the '68 to the '65, to my own surprise honestly. The Bassman channel sounds great, and being able to jump the channels pretty much makes the amp for me.

I have played both, but owned neither. Both sound very good, but the new '68's sound VERY close to my 1960's blackface amps.

It really boils down to whether you want a traditional blackface sound ('65) or one which is pretty heavily modded (Custom '68).

A good ABY box should have a phase invert.

Sounds like you favor the Custom. No need for the internet's approval ;)

I have to disagree. The 68's sound closer to me. Both are good amps.
