    Clubman Reverb head into a open back 4x12 with Blues and the Century Vintage in a x-pattern. Chime for days and loud!! I only use the 4x12 for bigger outdoor gigs, and then take my Gold and Blue loaded Avatar to the smaller gigs. Anyway, I couldn't be happier with this rig! I also scored a Dr.Z Maz Sr. head (reverb) that I'll receive Wed....it's been a good week!!:D

    Nice! Congrats on the new amp.

    ...ahem ... I see you have a road case similar to mine for the head? Wait 'til you schlepp THAT thing to and from a few gigs! It must weigh 90lbs inside the roadcase! Total back breaker ... UGH!!!

    Enjoy that spanky clean tone.

    Nice!
    I just recently got a Clubman 35 with a 4x10 cab. I'm LOVING this thing. Yours is much prettier than mine.

    I'm happy I spent the extra cash for a good road case to carry my Chieftain 2x12 combo, the total weight with case is about 130 pounds. With the wheels usually after we get it out of the truck we can just roll it where we want it. My back is thankful for that.

    Good grab, congrats!

    Sweet! I've been wanting to play a new Clubman for a while now. Gotta find a dealer and make a road trip!

    Is that some sort of built in beam blocker in front of the speakers?

    Very nice rig.

    Thanks, it's got tone for days as well. It's a Gigliotti GT Custom.

    Thanks guys! The head case is actually for my Divided By 13 FTR37. I have one being made for the Matchless and yes it will be a heavy SOB! :)

    Thanks, you should hear it sometime. Sadly, the Matchless is rarely home so I won't be able to record it. All I used that night was that guitar, amp and a Catalinbread SCP. I was sittin in with a band and they said it was the best I ever played, I attribute that to the tone I had, it was killer that night.

    I need to put new tubes in the Matchless as the power tubes right now are a tad saggy (old and worn). I have some I'm going to throw in there this weekend.
