    Default anyone want an older bassman?

    https://santabarbara.craigslist.org/...855626721.html

    Nothing I want or need but still, on the surface at least, seems like a very reasonably priced vintage amp

    I would snag that in a minute if it wasn't 3,000 miles away

    When you've had budget guitars for a number of years, you may find that your old instrument is holding you back. A quality guitar can inspire you to write great songs, improve your understanding of the Gdim chord while in the Lydian Mode, cure the heartbreak of cystic acne--and help you find true love in the process.

    Looks like one that I had in the early '80's. I only paid $100 for that one though.

    thats not really true. its a fine pedal platform and many people use their amps that way these days.

    I have a client who runs his bass through 2 of those Bassmans.... They sound good for a Fender Rhodes, too.

    Monster, someone should grab that thing. I have an old '71 Silverface Bassman 50 that I bought new, and it is still kicking butt.

    172 lb pedal platform might be considered somewhat extreme....

    Id take it in a heartbeat proving that everything works as intended but I absolutely love Bassman’s in almost all of they’re various forms!!! Obviously an older model would be preferable but for $500 what do expect? I vote buy it & use it as a pedal amp or perhaps have it modded to give you a bit more early breakup?

    I wouldn't get too offended by that comment. Jolly's not around much anymore, but I'm 100% sure he's just talking sh*t. Shoot him a PM, have him give you a call... you'll see
