    For a cool little stereo rig.
    Egnater Rebel and 1x12
    Burriss Royal Bluesman and Avatar 1x12

    For my P&W band
    Gabriel V18 - Gabverb and vertical 2x12

    For the country side of things.
    Dr. Z Stangray - 2x12

    I'm thinking I might be able to afford the Egnater. :p

    (3) Ho Attenuators/Reamp boxes 200w versions. Two Reeves Custom 100's for the L/R, and a Germino Monterey JTM45-100 for the dry
    A crazy multi Scumback/Fane loaded 4x12" wet/dry/wet rig with midi controller and a few sick fuzz pedals out front, maybe a talkbox and a wah. And a few roadies.

    or

    That same setup with 2x12" and 1x12" combos and roadcases.

    Kingsley D32C with power scaling. I have a Tone King Meteor II, and a D'Lite Dumble style, both GREAT amps. I'd have to sell both of those to afford the Kingsley, and I vacillate about it every couple of days.

    Gerlitz Revelator. I'd seriously consider selling an organ to finance one.

    The truth is that there are very few new amps that Im really into so most of my amp GAS is for older amps meaning that a lot of them are unrealistic for various reasons...

    I'd love to have a middle/late 60's 100 watt Plexi but i'm not gonna throw that kind of cash down for an amp that I can't crank and enjoy.

    I'd love to have a boat load of tweed and brown Fenders but most of them are just too much money and some of them are also just too loud.

    As for new amps...the Matchless Clubman is a great amp, I really dig the Divided by 13 RSA 23 and JRT 9/15 as well as the Bogner Duende...

    Some of these amps might be in my future but who knows...

    For now my small collection will have to hold me over...it currently includes a '69 Twin Reverb, '60 Ampeg Jet, custom built '05 Mission Amps V Front Super clone, a '74(ish) Sound City 50+ and a '62 Deluxe...I think I can get by for a while.

    The Princeton Reverb for $699 down at the local shop. I know that $699 isn't that much. But when I'm currently paying back my previous purchases, it's unobtainable right now. Maybe in 8 months once I'm done paying back what I owe, if it's still there, he'll be willing to come down pretty low? At least that's what I'm telling myself.

    Well, I'm going tomorrow to pick up a ( supposedly) 1970 Fender Twin Reverb, no master volume.

    I need a loud (and heavy) 100 watt 2x12 Fender combo like I need a hole in the head, but I've been searching for a silverface non-master volume Fender for a while, and I just need to scratch this itch.

    Loud and clean, wash it down with reverb! I tried several mid-70's Twins with the master-volume and I just couldn't get the sound I wanted. That master volume just seems to do something weird to the bass. I'm trying to re-capture the sound I had with a '68 Super Reverb that I had to let go several years ago. Loud and tight. Thought I'd give 12" a shot this time rather than 10".

    '65 Princeton Reverb... have spent to much this year and not a single guitar I am willing to give up.

    What I really need is a 1/2 power blackface bassman head.
