    Thanks fellas!! Normal CH VOL dimed has a nice Rock tone.
    Back off the guitar VOL a little bit and it cleans up nice.

    Very nice.....

    Do you have a favored amp tech to service the Vibrolux? Has it had a cap job? Thanks.

    I bought that amp and a 1955 Junior from the original owner.
    The amp turned on but that was about it. Roy Blankenship Ive known for a looong time was
    able to get her up and running with little to do. Caps had puked their guts out.

    I don`t think it ever had a logo on the cloth.

    The SG has 2 PAF`s and a nice neck profile. Lately I`ve been
    playing this other SG ..a 64. Kinda comparing .I`m becoming a SG again.
    Acoustically.. the Special sounds more .. musical.

    Yeah, its a VERY gigable amp. Light ,loud and tone.
    Peged out , its just the right "bar" VOL level. That's hard to match up.

    Almost given the amp. With little investment to get her running. I really had no idea the
    man was gonna bring it. Pulled this out with the guitar. Said..You want this too? It doesn't work.
    Yeah man.

    My '61 never had a logo. Odd time at Fender- lots went out the door without a logo.
    Great amp for nailing Allman Bros -though I don't have the slide chops.

    Cool, thought I`d share the pic long ago with me and a similar LPSG ebony.
    I had it for awhile and foolishly sold it for rent in 1986.
