Jerry's Fender Princeton Reverb he gave to Danny Rifkin

Jerry's Fender Princeton Reverb he gave to Danny Rifkin

Postby MikeInMarin » Wed Jul 19, 2017 4:38 pm

So, one of my good pals is friends with Danny Rifkin's son, who loaned him the early 60s Fender Princeton Reverb that Jerry gave his dad. Apparently, Jerry didn't care for it.

Well, my pal brought it over today and let me play through it and hang onto it for a bit.

Here's a quick video we did of my noodling on it on Sugaree.....on the Troy Post Wolf I just bought and got from one-eyed jack, thanks to this awesome board.

Forgive the sloppy playing, as I clearly didn't imagine the epic-ness of the moment at the time. Still in shock a bit. I'll have to go out to the garage and make a few more videos before my friend comes to claim it.

Not sure why the link isn't working.

Feel free to cut and paste the following into your browser or go to my facebook music page at the bottom of my signature as the video is linked on a post there.

I'm going to try it with one of my JBL K-120s later. And my friend is going to ask the owner if he's willing to sell it to me. Not getting my hopes up that he will or that I can afford what he might ask, but what the hell.
