Just scored a nicely built clone from a small company in Texas. Top of the line components, mercury trannies, aged cab and a jensen p12n. Never played one before but wow! I played a bandmaster reverb for years and currently have an ampeg j20 (which is basically a brown deluxe) and the tweed is the perfect complement. Now i get all the talk. My tele never sounded better. Gretsch seems to prefer the ampeg but I can make it work as I like raunchy fuzzed out tones.
