Topic: Scored my Dream Amp! 1963 Vibroverb with clips

I know many of us play and love gear- anyway, I recently scored an all original 2 x 10 Brownface 6G16 1963 Vibroverb, thought by many to be Fender's greatest amp (always a debate, but...)

This is #0362 of 626 ever built and formally belonged to a banker type who hardly used it (!)- well we'll soon change that.

It's completely original save for a few changed caps (and I don't have the footswitch, sadly!). Speakers, trannies, all original.

Enjoy these little clips- in both cases using a 1971 strat 4 bolt neck direct in, amp reverb only

Knopflery stuff...
