  1. They were nice at the time,felt good,PAFvoiced humbuckers,many favors.
  2. Hey OP, if the Craigslist Gods are kind you should be able to find at least a silverface Fender amp from the 70's of at least 40 watts (trust me, tube watts are louder than solid state watts) for the kind of money you are looking at. It may need service (tubes, capacitors), but it will likely outlive even you due to the construction methods used at the time. I have a basement full of old Fenders bought for stupid little money over the years. I have a Showman, Bassman, Bandmaster, Deluxe, and an old 210 Super Amp that all told cost me less than $1200, but that comes from 30 years of cruising music stores.
  3. Deluxes Super Reverbs are pricey, but deals abound for the less popular ones, Vibrolux, Pro Reverb, Twin reverb (big and heavy) , Bandmaster and Dual Showman Reverb.
  4. That was David Spinozza who did the fiddly guitar bits on Ram along with Hugh McCracken. Lennon hired Spinozzahe later, and was reputed to be Yoko's squire during the Lost Weekend.
  5. Lennon's sound did what it was supposed to do, fill the mids while Harrison got sparkly. He got some great tones, too. The jazz guitar solo in Honey Pie was him, and the last lick in The End is impossible to get right.
  6. SEs were really good sounding guitars, unusually so.

Does anybody know why that is, exactly? Is it a legal thing or does Yamaha feel they wouldn't sell? It's a perception thing. During the 90's Yamaha was kicking ass and taking names with the quality of the RGX and Pacifica lines. Kids would play them, and buy a plywood Ibanez or Squier because their artist rosters were cooler.
  8. Rik has (or had, I dunno since the Dean signature model) a lot of pull at Yamaha in the days I was there (90's). Did some clinics with him, and he's an outstanding musician. Triumph was never my thing, but that boy can play and sing.

I've had it for about twelve years now and I could never figure out why Yamaha discontinued them. more info People really discovered them only after they were discontinued for poor sales. A friend has a DG80-210, and it's a smoking, really versatile amp. I own a DG1000 (preamp) that uses the same technology but has no effects. The extra DSP goes to the front end, which is 25 bit with 5 sliding bits (essentially 30 bit). It reacts so much like a tube amp it's insane, even with the guitar volume on 1 it doesn't get grainy, or gate out. People were buying Line 6 hand over fist at the time.

Since the Pac904 was discontinued, I'm not sure that they do.
  12. I have a roomful of amps in the basement (literally). I love them. I also have a Yamaha DG1000, a PromixO1 and powered Renkus-Heinz speakers. I also love them. I'm good to go either way.
