    The universe kind of rearranges itself in a very cool way every time one plays through an old brown or blackface Fender amp. I just got this real sweet sounding '61 brown Concert that I'm doing back flips over.

    Well, that's the report I expected :) Enjoy, Ed . . .

    What was the condition, etc? Did you have to do anything to it when you got it?

    Congrads on the Bassman:dude

    By the looks of the photo, I bet it's going to be hard to find a speaker cabinet:D

    Those are beautiful sounding amps with just the right amount of punch in the right places.

    Were you looking for one or did you just stumble onto it?

    Let's see some close-ups if you get some time away from playin that Fender Thang...

    Never had any real interest. However one of the guys at the shop is into Fenders. He has a BF Quad reverb that is amazing, and that got me started looking for a Dual Showman. Anyways, a month ago he gets this Bassman that is soooo killer sounding. And I told him if he ever wanted so sell it I'd buy it. Came with a fligh case even. :)
    I also am selling the 2x12 it came with.

    Oh YEAH !!!! Congratulations. I've got a '64 and a '67 - beautiful sounding, no frills amps.

    Hey Ed, Fender only made silverface Quad Reverbs - no blackface models produced. Do you mean he "blackfaced" his Quad? I just did that to my '72 Quad and it made a HUGE difference. Much better now - no more ice picks in my skull. I didn't think it would be that drastic - I was wrong.

    Nice Ed.... those amps can supprise you if you haven't spent much time with them. I've had to chance recently to borrow back an old BF Bassman just for kicks, and ran it beside my Flexi with my Lehle on A+B. Huge sound and they really complimented each other more than I expected. I'll always be partial to those old Fenders just because I started on them.

    Obviously you`ve led a sheltered life. You must have a Fender before you can appreciate what came after my son.

    That is a great amp. I always sound like a broken record, but if you are impressed with the BF Bassman you have got to try a blonde.
