Dating fender bassman amplifier ali seeking for women 2016 dating profile in lebanon
If you've got one of the 14 amp models in this range you can get a rough idea of its date-of-manufacture from these tables.For the batches labelled "date codes needed", I haven't got any loudspeaker or transformer date codes, or (gold dust) the 4-digit inkstamp on the metal chassis, which is usually only visible when out of the wooden cab.Compared to my estimate of the total made, that's more than one in forty.It might not sound like much, but quite a lot can be deduced from such a sample.
(Fender did this chassis-sharing thing in earlier years, with the same implications for guessing quantities, as noted by Greg Gagaliano.) I estimate about 5500 were made in total.While it's anyone's guess how many of these were Champ II and how many were Bassman 20, they seem to come up on e Bay equally often. People keep on referring to this 'fewer than 500' thing, especially when they're trying to sell one as 'rare', but I'm still waiting for anyone to point back to the original 'fact' of the matter!) If your amp's serial number falls into the last 3 batches then your best hope of dating it is if you've still got the original speaker.I run a couple of websites making the schematics for these amps easily accessible.As people download them, I'm hoping they'll respond to my request that they send me their amp's serial number for this project, and many do.
