    What is in your opinion the best looking vintage amp?

    I am not talking about sound but just the looks. My personal favorite is this one :

    Swart's aren't really "vintage" amps. Boutique, but not vintage. :)
    I'm not saying that
    those aren't good looking amps. :D

    That's not vintage though. Isn't it a Swart?

    I love the clean and practical all business look of the Hiwatts.

    In something smaller, my 2 vintage Ampegs are pretty sharp.

    Nice family photo. Are those all tube? Pacemaker or a Cambridge? If that is a Berkley I guess you have the Cambridge in a head if it is a tube amp. I agree totally classy looking amps.

    Lost_Cause, the amps in the picture are tube Pathfinder, Pacemaker & Berkeley Super Reverb. The tube Cambridge Reverb & stand is not pictured.

    Is it time for one of these threads already...

    B&W photo doesn't really do justice to it's cheerfully coloured and illuminated front panel but a 8x12" cab with four built-in power amps blasting 200 watts is nothing short from being definition of looking AWESOME!

    Here's one with different cab...

    Oldschool Vox's were so cool. Fawn especially but then there were the rare birds like this-
