    Carr and Swart. I think that a black Carr Lincoln is the coolest looking amp in the world. Best looking amp I have ever owned is a tie between my Carr Mercury V and the Swart STR Tweed I used to own.

    I like the look of a Komet Constellation 30. Probably any that are sporting finished woods. Allesandro, Trainwreck, etc.

    Hard to just one so I'm going to pick the 3 that always catch my eye:

    Mesa Dual Rectifier - looks like a work truck and lasts as long.
    Marshall - box logo or script, they are so clean looking.
    Soldano - Love that metal grille with the bar font logo.

    I like the looks of the brown/black 2 tone Louis Electric Columbia and Deltone.

    This thread is reminding me that there are those out there who find khaki exciting.

    Exactly this. Everybody’s acting like they don’t love this look.. but deep down they do.

    There are so many. I have a pinterest page for collecting some of them.

    Among my favorites would be
    Mesa Dual Rectifier, red crocodile skin
    Kustom Amplification the big colored bubble skin style amps...
    Vox and Gibson trapezoid amps

    And many more, see if you like, towards the bottom on my pinterest for more exotic ones, about 700 so far...

    Another vote for Orange, with Vox getting an honorable mention.

    For me it's Matchless. They started the light up logo. The tolex and grill were unlike anything you'd ever seen. The reverberation of their aesthetic and quality is still being felt today.
