    It's a 1977, to be exact. I'm thinking of buying it, but I want to have a handle on the used market value. What do you guys think?

    Hmm... Now did the circuit change much from the BF specs? Is this going to behave like a BF deluxe reverb? Will it have the crunchy, crunchy if I crank it?

    I played a 1978 which sounded very much like a black face to me. Have you played it?

    Update: price guide puts it at $950 to $1200 in excellent condition and $600 to $750 if in average condition.

    I haven't played it yet. Ampwares says that the SF ones have a different circuit.

    Play it, take cash, and lowball if you like it, and pay a little extra if you love it!

    +1 on that.
    I got a '79 Deluxe that just oozes tone! Just about like the last guy, my main amp is a '70 pro reverb (sometimes a/b with a crate v32 palomino).
    ...love them, but the deluxe on about 6 or 7 is the best amp I've ever had or used, including twins, marshalls, silvertones, old tweed no-names, buddas, bassmans, clones, vox, etc.

    I think 77 was the time of the pop out master volume which are worth less than the pre pop out volumes.

    I found a nearly mint 76 with a G12M at a guitar show for $575. :hiP ...... but that was 2 years ago.
