    Not really, only about 40 lbs. I had a water line break in the middle of the night in my last home. Call me paranoid, but all my amps and guitars now stay off the floor, unless in use.

    Thanks, I really love the amp. Been a Marshall guy forever but I also love my Fenders (oops, now I own more Fenders than Marshall’s).

    Too bad about your neighbor. I don’t wish that trouble on anyone. I had 40K in damage, and it took almost 9 months to get insurance and subcontractors worked out to complete the restoration. A few weeks in a hotel and our belongings all in storage. Fortunately, I did not lose any gear.

    Frickin' sweet...

    I got started on one of those.
    That, my first electric guitar, and a DOD Super American Metal pedal.

    Simpler times.

    That is a clean beautiful amp. The last Fender amp I had was called a "Concert" amp, 1-12" combo with 60w I think. It had overdrive in it, not a great Fender trait but it did work. Never really had a full feel to it though, even though I played it through a 4-12" Fender cab.

    A ‘64 BF amp is the best year to own. Congrats.
    Love to see some photos.

    Awesome! That is one clean vintage amp! :cool:

    As much as I love my Marshalls, I love old Fenders too..I have a pair of Twin Reverbs, a '69 and a '75 that's been Blackfaced.

    Also have a Blues Deluxe and a pair of '70's Champs..All great amps!

    That reminds me, I've been planning to get mine off the floor..My gear's downstairs, where the water would flood if a line ever broke.

    Such a simple decision and yet most of us don't bother putting the amps off the floor until something bad happens)

    Yeah, a friend almost lost a Hammond organ, the one he uses for gigs, cause of a kitchen sink tube breaking...

    Gorgeous amp, maybe the most versatile fender amp.. difficult to carry though from one point on..
