having said that, it kind of goes to show that great deals do pop up on the vintage stuff. $1500 for the P-ton is a really, really good price, and the deluxe for $800 was a no brainer. Should have bought it and flipped it for $1000 trade in value at a store.

Stupid.

If I was in NYC I would go buy that Princeton today.

of course i'm biased (rimshot.gif) but it really is a superb amp. The more I play it, the more i see and hear how great it is. Way more versatile than I expected too, and even the vibrato is more dynamic than i would have expected. Love that amp.

It's hard for me to be that upset over missing a blackface. I'm a tweed man - missing a tweed deluxe for $800 would have killed me.

I bought my narrow panel 55 tweed deluxe for $800 from a place in Seattle that had no idea what it was. They thought it was a Princeton.

I told them it was a deluxe and they said no it isnt in a "you are an idiot" kind of way, so I said fine and paid and when I had it back in my hands I held up the tube chart for them and showed them.

Of course you didn't need to look at the tube chart, just the speaker -- it was 12".

And that speaker was a mid 60's Vox silver bell speaker in it which is worth about 2x what the original Jensen was worth, so more win. I was going to sell the Vox and buy a Jensen and pocket the profit, but the Vox is a better speaker and I like how they sound together.

Just a few select pieces now. All ones I play.

I'm thinking about flipping one of my blond jazz boxes for a nice 50's Martin. I haven't had a flat top in a long time. Prior to this I let a lot of my collection go in the mid 90's during a major change in my life. It was cool having a closet with 25 bad-ass vintage guitars at any given time. I had a ball hunting them down (all pre internet) meeting guys, musicians, networking, etc.) but I decided to focus on playing and less on acquisition. I came to a point where playing the guitar was far more important than being known for owning guitars. Don't get me wrong, they were all beautiful instruments, reflecting quality and craftsmanship. I enjoyed them all. But anyone with money can buy a guitar. However, it takes skill to play the guitar. Talent is one thing money can't buy.

I regret to say I have never really been a Fender guy. It seems like I love the sounds that other guys get out of them but I myself can't make em sound good. My fingers favor the Marshall and Vox type stuff. It's funny though, some of the best tones I've ever heard live were from a 1x10 Fender Princeton and an old Brownface respectively. I wish I could coax the tones out of those that I've heard from other guys. But alas I cannot.

I did really love the Divided by 13 FTR 37 I had for a while. And even though people always told me it had a Fendery flavor, I always thought it sounded more like a Vox with tons off bottom.

My impulses are only satisfied by actually acquiring the pedals. This must be how Beanie Baby collectors felt.

you'd be a terrible studio recording artist.
