I just bought a new Fender Bassman 59 LTD !!!! the sound is so live and amazing! Sounds so unbelievable right out of the box...I haven't even used my pedals with it yet... and don't even miss the reverb...the pine cab gives it a natural resonance...it definately is like SRV and Hendrix in a box...but so much more... For years I have been a die hard Boogie fan...with an original Mark I and a Mark IV ... I have never liked playing through anything else...and then I discovered this amp and it took my breath away...so natural and organic sounding...beautiful natural tone...and the price is so reasonable... I still love my Boogies and will never part with them but the Bassman 59 LTD adds another dimension and is a new permanent member of my family!!!!!!!!
