Not a bad price, but I'm wondering if you couldn't find something better for that money. I'm no silver face expert though.

eh...it's an OK deal. you could always have it modded to black face specs...it's not that big of a chore.

But for $700? Hmm.. I make him a offer. Worst that can happen is he'll say no. How low should I go?

I'd look into about $500. Honestly if he won't go lower than $550, I'd walk (that's just me though Jody).

Ditto that. It's a later 70's REALLY less desirable master volume Fender Twin (note additional knob to the right slightly apart from the rest). I had one of these and it would be a lot more difficult to convert it to blackface specs. It has a lot more going on with the master volume thingy- it also has a pull distortion that uses the reverb circuit to add horrendous distortion.

$700 is too much IMHO. Especially for an amp that's not going to sound good, and you'd have to spend lots of money to make it sound better...

could be an earlier silverface. i've got one with the master volume and it doesn't have the crappy pull-pot distortion. i'd check it out, but i wouldn't drop too much on it.

I agree, I'd pass on it, Jody. I know some people absolutely adore them, but every MV SF I've played has left me disappointed. :?

You sure? I thought EVERY master volume Twin had the pull distortion thingy. Ever try pulling on it?
