Re: reissue deluxe reverbs
I have one (took it in trade) and although it sounds pretty good they don't sound great compared to an original BF amp. On the subject of wear and tear, the output tubes have been replaced twice, the rectifier once, had to resolder the circuit board twice and I just recently fried the speaker...all within one year. I am not a superloud, heavy player, and don't put the amp on stun. I just don't think the amp holds up well at all.  
I have heard similar stories about the amps. If your budget allows, go get the real thing. You will be a much more satisfied customer in the long haul.
