I've always looked for 'guitar' amps which were made for bass, accordion, organ, etc. from way back and generally came away overjoyed, especially when they proved to luv lap steel guitar, my main focus, and if they were great for everything then GRAND SLAM! as I'm currently on another bass amp hunt I've found a few more that take the cake for guitar, I'll start with a favorite for many ...the '59 Bassman sound which can be dialed in on a Roland Cube Bass 100 in the 'B man' setting is surprisingly OK. Finally, a Bassman which actually excels at being a bass amp too!* they make lower wattage versions which may perform as well as the 100, maybe better. Another choice are the SWR Workingman's 10, 12, and 15, simply AMAZING. these each are usually easy to find @ around $200. for the vintage side, and still on the cheap... my Guild Thunderbass' 50 (maybe) watt head is a Marshall killer, and that's pure stock, tweak them for guitar and fugetaboutit cos somebody will steal it. *now here's what I found yesterday and can't get off my mind; a stunning chest-high piggy-back Fender silverface at a local shop, I instantly became intrigued and now find they tend to be fine low vol. bass amps at probably 50 watts but rated higher. as I lit out the owner claimed 4 10s were inside the cab, then in my nascent research I've seen nothing but typical square 4x10 combos with 0 mention of a larger option, but this tall dude could easily handle another 2! now I'm kicking myself for not peeking... but I found this quote - ''Starting in 1972, Fender produced a number of variations on this Bassman with varying wattage and speaker size.'' plus, they seem quite inconsistent in performance quality with some being great for both bass or guitar and others dog-ish, then there's 2 distinct versions from the era to contend with, each having their pros / cons. I'm betting this is one of the good ones and I feel another trip to the music store comin' on. I posted this at talkbass to see if this cab is fo'real or what's the deal. what hidden gems have you found?
