    Hi folks.

    Thanks to all those who have helped me with my decision, especially blazzrock for your advice, Chazmania for recommending Lance to me, and of course to Lance for his excellent customer service.

    I'm in a fix now, everything is decided; but the only thing right now to choose is...believe it or not is the color!!!!:crazy

    I'll be purchasing a RSA23 Combo, I have already surfed through all the d13 pics on TGP!

    I was thinking of going for red and gold, red arrow with gold tolex, or gold arrow with red tolex.

    What do you guys think?

    Just something to consider...have you played the amp yet? If you end up not liking it, resale is something to consider. Black USUALLY is easiest to sell, it matches easiest and is the most common color.

    That said, I love the silver/egg someone has in the emporium. If I was ordering new without playing, I'd go black with silver V.

    I've heard that he's out of gold. I could be wrong though.

    He is out of gold, I just placed an order a couple weeks ago. He does have this cool green:

    Here is an RSA combo in plum:

    I posted somewhere else about the new colors Fred told me about: Blood Red, Powder blue, Apple Green...


    I have a bunch of /13 amps in different colors on my photobucket that I was using to find the right color for me:

    These two are great; I'd love a plum with green V!

    IMO, any time I see red and yellow or red and gold together, it makes me think of ketchup and mustard, which in turn makes me think of hotdogs. Or Ronald McDonald. Not that I don't like hotdogs. Or McDonald's for that matter.

    My FTR37 is orange with the eggshell V. Got lots of compliments on it. I do like that green however.

    That's what I ordered! Just like an old pair of Jordan's from 4th grade. As soon as my EDT and 2x12 arrives I'll post a pic!

    Forest green or navy blue are nice,i like the new apple green aswell.They're my favourites.I'd always go with a colour on a D13,rather than black or silver,i think they just suit it.

    I have a CJ in navy and it's just a gorgeous thing to have around.One of my favourite looking amps ever.I love the aesthetic of D13 amps personally.

    Let's see it! I agree with you on the regular black /13's. Alot of them look kind of plain---Black with cream or egg V.

    I really dig the crazier/more creative color combos!

    I thought about it and I will most probably ditch the red/gold scheme, my mom told her it reminds her way too much of Chinese New Year of which red and gold are the traditional colors.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys.

    That green one is sick, I actually saw it in the d13 porn thread a while back. It's killer.

    The new colors are wonderful too, what about Gold with a Powder blue Arrow?

    What do you guys think?

    I'm pretty sure Gold is out. How about Powder blue with a plum V? I saw some cool ones on the /13 site...Silver with plum V. Powder blue with white V etc

    Actually powder blue with a plum V sounds good.

    I'm in love with the gold and silver colors but their so strong that it can be quite a sight matching them with other colors too, other than of course black.

    I can't imagine we're talking color coordination and not amp tone! :D

    Hey,i think it's important,take your time and get it right,you'll be seeing it a lot and have it in your home presumably.People who say otherwise just own ugly amps.

    I think the navy or the forest green with cream V look so classic as a combo,there's something so 50s about them when you see them in person.They're stunning.My concern with getting a wilder colour scheme is that you might get sick of it after a while (if you plan on keeping it for the long haul) and it might not 'go' too well in the house.That's just my taste though,everyone's is different obviously.I'll try and get a shot of mine tommorow in the daylight.

    I just woke up not long ago...I dreamt of nothing but the /13 combo colors!:crazy

    How about the powder blue but with gold arrow? :D

    And thanks for the tips guys, I really appreciate it!

    PaulE, nice /13 stack you got there, what does that toggle switch on your LP do?
