New member and old amps

Hi, I am a new member to the forum and a collector of vintage amps.
For those who are interested I put a quick video on youtube of some old amps I have.
All the amps are serviced and play and I would love to find the time to upload demos of them all.
If anyone has a vintage Gibson that I don't have please let me know.
There is a local guy that says he will take some high quality video for me "when he has some spare time".
Each of these amps has a matching laps steel.

Welcome to Gibson-Talk, Prewar! It sounds like you have a serious fetish, I like it. I only have two amps that kinda old, a 1965 Fender Deluxe Reverb, and a 1971 Fender Bassman 50. I love both of them though!
Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul.
Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.

Welcome to Gibson Talk Prewar!! Those are cool amps you have there. The oldest amps I have are a couple of SF Fenders.
Take Care
We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

The oldest amp I ahve is a 1961 EPIPHONE EA-1-RV (15 inch Jensen and reverb). Great amp. I had to recap it about 1 year ago.
