    I love the classy look of my TC-50. I kinda like the Dual Rec's diamond plate look but like it better with the black diamond plate. What are some of your favorite looking amp heads?

    As excited as I am for the Invective, I'm not loving its looks. And my Vypyr 60 has that logo. I definitely wouldn't call that amp pretty. :D

    Black face Rectos look awesome, I never really liked the chrome tread plate so much, looks overdone in my opinion.

    I've always found Peavey stuff to be kinda ugly. Marshall strikes me as trying to be at least a bit classy. Some of the custom finished Mesa stuff is really nice. The Randall, Engl, Laney, etc stuff trying to look "metal" comes across as kinda lame to me, but as long as they sound good, doesn't really matter.

    I agree. Love the black tread plate look.

    Friedman make some of the nicest looking amps to me. Just overall simple and classy... and brutal if you consider the butterslax.

    Love these Mesa's. Recto with chrome chassis and black treadplate equally sexy.

    And although I love both of those amps. The obvious winner for this is below

    Being an EVH fanboy, I dig the stripes. Plus I love how the white-on-black aesthetic can fit with most cabs.

    Also, I actually like the fact it's a really big head, so it fits on top of a 4x12 almost perfectly.

    [​IMG]

    Also, a mid-late '70s Marshall JMP. I love the white piping and the huge-ass logo. It's just so fucking iconic.

    [​IMG]

    And the Mesa Roadster. I love the contrast of the black leather and the black treadplate.

    [​IMG]

    And while we're at it, the original silverface Recto. There's something about the black treadplate, the silver chassis, and the black text that just looks so brutal, even more brutal than the modern Recto.

    Only problem with the 2 Mesa heads is they're undersized, so they look wonky on top of a cab. :squint:

    Laugh all you want... But I like the,

    Peavey Wiggy
    Vanous Evolution
    3 Monkeys amps
    Diezel VH4
    Basically anything daring and non-conforming

    I have a serious dislike for hardwood furniture looking rigs.

    P.S. I drive a '06 Scion Xb ... so

    I would hate, but aren't those cars kickass for hauling gear around? :lol:

    Oh yeah, Vanous amps seem really cool. They have that "idgaf" look a lot of modern bass amps have.

    Whats your opinion on the Randall RG100HT and Rivera TBR-1M?

    Either my Herbert or VH4... both are a definite "schwing" in my booK:
