    I just got an early (67-68) fender vibratone. I love the slow swirl and strat in the 2nd position for Lenny, Riviera Paradise, Tin Pan Alley, etc! Sweet! Serial number is 1020 and has the metal fender logo. It is in wonderful condition, with no noise at all! Not sure how to best use it however. I have hooked up with my super reverb RI. I also have an old blues deville, 2x12. I wonder if I will get better tone from the TS,s by running both amps! I think it will take a little getting use to the vibratone and how to play it! IF anybody has any great suggestions, I;m open ears! I have the super reverb sitting rght next to the vibratone and both are facing forward.

    Thanks,

    Mike :phones

    No suggestions, just a congratulations!

    I've never even seen a Vibratone, but of course am very familiar with the sound. Distinctly different from a Leslie... Great score!!

    Any chance for some pics??
