There has been a fair amount of discussion on this over on The Gear Page you should check out (a really informative site btw). Here is a link to one: http://www.thegearpage.net/board/showth ... p?t=824244
Once I discovered the playing of Jim Campilongo, and what he does with a Princeton (and a telecaster), I was sold--and of course I had to get one!

Sounds damn fine in that video! I had a feeling the DRRI would be too much, so I'm going to take that out of the running.
Strummin, your mention of the Blackbird led me to further research it and I found nothing but glowing reviews! I'm honestly thinking that this may be the amp for me. Too bad you don't know that guy in Boston; I'd feel better going ahead with that if someone could vouch for the guy . I do have one question though about the reverb. I hear people saying it's more subtle than that of the Fender, which is routinely described as having a "surfy" reverb. Does the Blackbird have solid enough reverb? I sorta wish Fargen wasn't limiting new stuff to heads and cabinets, custom shop aside. I wouldn't mind ponying up several hundred more for a new one with warranty given the option. All of the comments I read about those amps couldn't have been better.
