    Well that´s a german couple from the early 80ies.

    The Amp is a very early Kitty Hawk "Amp" Model loaded with the original EVM12 Speaker. Only very few of those made before the "Standard" Model was introduced. The guts are also different from the Standard series. Those very early "Amp" models supposed to be Dumble Silverface clones. At least this one sounds pretty much like a Dumble.

    The Guitar is a 1983 Hofner T6S (ES-335 style). Only a few T6S were made after custom order. This one is the only one made in Black. All the other ones were natural Blonde. It´s made of Spuce Top and Sustainblock, and Maple Neck, Sides and Back. Currently loaded with some 50ies Wire Wizz PAF clones.

    Smockin German P0rn Couple :dude:

    It is a great guitar. It´s thinner body and no f-holes make it resistant to feedback while keeping it´s tonal qualities. It is also a very fast player. One of the best playability i had in my hands.

    Here some more pics for you
