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?

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.

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

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.

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

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

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:

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
