1980's RKTT, with cupcake knobs:
I have a Princeton Reverb. It is one of the new limited edition models with the sunburst ash cabinet. It is like a beautiful peace of furniture and never leaves my music room. Anything sounds sweet through it: humbuckers, single coils, etc.
Almost forgot about my tweed Blues Jr. I don't use it much anymore. But the SG can really overdrive it to a nice tweedish sounding grind.
A Blues Junior. Am I the only one?
I got me a basterd Jr, with a pair of English Celestions
Wooh, that is cool. Probably I'm gonna change the speaker also. But first I want to play some gigs with the stock speaker.
I only use my Fender Pro Tube Twin Amp now. It's one of the 2 channel ones from 2007 with the LEDs on the back that tells when the power tubes are about to burst. The sound is great, and it can go from really loud, defined cleans, to super overdriven. In addition to that it's also got built in Tremolo, Reverb, and switchable effects loop that can act as a volume boost
Before the end of the day I hope to be playing my SG Standard through this little guy. As soon as it arrives I have a Pigtronix Looper loaded up and ready to break it in for a few hours so that when I have time later tonight it'll be ready to try.
I played the Fender Bassbreaker combos in December and then again at Winter NAMM in January and absolutely loved them. I got mine today and after only four hours of break-in it sounds even better to me than I remember. This FSR edition is loaded with a 12" Greenback instead of the V-Style Celestion that comes in the stock amp. I'm really liking this amp. Anyway, the SG Standard sounds lovely through it.... back to playing.
...any one I want. It's called modeling.
Congratulations! Looks lovely.
Owned several over the years, currently own a'57 Champ from 2011, one trick pony that does an AWESOME trick, and a 2017 '65 Princeton Reverb FSR Blonde/Wheat that's definitely more articulate than the Champ at the same volume, with tube/spring reverb to die for. the next (and probably last) purchase will be a lightly used '57 Deluxe.
