Dating pignose amplifiers
I do know that Kevin Paul claimed to have a serial number listing for Fender guitars (insider information from a friend) to date Fender amps in-lieu of using the 2 letter date code on the tube chart or QA sticker or the "606-" transformer number. The Blue Book for Guitar Amplifiers has a listing that they were made from "1997 to Present" as I had indicated previously. manufacturer and would use the American version of dating, which would be B-04/26/13 (day, month, year) in-lieu of the European version you used as an example. The other was only dusty and it went for $900.00 even. Believe me (or not), this amp starting with serial B-0XXXXX was not made in 86. Ville Sorry Charlie, The Hot Rod Deville and Deluxe were only made in the USA from 1996-2002 (The F. Good Luck It Ain't no 86-87: I don't know where that 86-87 came from either.
I wanted one back in the 1970's but the waiting list was crazy. When I buy one, it's an acoustic with no electronic stuff installed. I don't how you got 86-87 But that is totally wrong. If it is a 1996 it would have a gold 50th anniversary stamp on the back plate and that would make it the most saught after Deluxe of them all.Click the 'back' plectrum to go back to the previous page, or click the "Grouse Guitars" nameplate above to go directly to the Grouse Guitars homepage. - went to Indra 1951 Fender Pro Amp - Here's a fantastic TV-front vintage Fender amp from the golden period. - selling for less than the price we paid - went to Tony 1957 Magnatone Custom 280 Double V - the legendary amp with true stereo vibrato.1940s H&H portable valve amplifier - what an amazing old amp.

I thought it matched up well with another amp you discussed in an earlier thread, but I thought mine was possibly made in 1996 based on some other things that I read; glad to hear I was wrong. I had the first little one 71-100 for cancer corner, I wore it out, it took 15 tries to turn it on. i have a junk mic and back ground noise will be on any CD I make. Tried it when I first bought it, haven't used it since. However, I'm old school when it comes to acoustics.
Jack Sorry but I dont think its 85-86 as stated below, the Hot Rod Deville and Hot Rod Deluxe first year run was in 96. Did you buy one Master, for fun you will have a grand time. I have a Dean Markley stick on pick up to record acoustic and run then in to the amps. I also have a Dean Markley sound hole pickup for my acoustics, if I want to electrify them.
No snow here in Erwin, TN where I'm working, it's been raining the last 3 or 4 days and in the high 40's to mid 50's during the day and the mid 30's to low 40's at night. Does it interface with the Hog20 and what does it do that is fun?
