I had started typing, then deleted, then started typing... I am with the last few folks, actually. I love, love, love my two reissue Fender amps. My '63 Vibroverb Ri is one of the prettiest sounding amps I've ever heard. My Bassman Ri is just all out awesome sounding. I've loved every one of the Silverface amps I've owned. They've sounded incredible! I didn't have to do anything to them while I owned them (well, replace the non original speakers in my Vibrolux, because they got toasted). I never needed to fiddle with the circuits, change any values of any components. They just sounded great. The only thing that has changed was my taste and the style of music I play. My skills have refined in a certain direction which leads me towards the older Fender circuits. But, I am not hung up on my amps having to be vintage. I hope that my original post did not come across as dismissing any of the later amps or reissues, etc. Some days, I am quite jealous of the tone my fellow musicians get with those post-CBS amps!
