I've just fallen in love with my SFTR again!

I've just fallen in love with my SFTR again!
I went and fallen in love with my 1975 silverface Twin Reverb all over again.  
The other day, I started playing through my Twin and I also fired-up my Peavey Classic 50 410 and boy did the Twin ever mop-up the floor with the Peavey!  
Now don't get me wrong because the Classic 50 is not a bad amp for the price but the Twin is just in another league all together. BTW, my SFTR has been blackfaced, master volume bypassed and I also replaced the blue Utah speakers with a pair of Weber VST California 12s. What tone!  
Man, that Leo Fender sure built some fine amps.

Hi HB  
Cool !

Leo did built some fine guitars and amps and he couldn't play more then 3 chords !
