My first blonde one was bought in May 1994, serial number 0916, date code EE, but I needed to sell it during the 'great recession' of '09 and regretted that the instant the buyer turned the corner at the end of the street. And we vowed to get another one. My second blonde one was bought March 2014, serial number 2580, date code KK. Made in November 2000. Dead Mint condition 14 year old amp with slip cover from a guy here in Austin who said it was 'too loud and too heavy'. His loss was my gain. (Though I did replace ALL the tubes with a complete matched set). The best modern combo amp Fender has ever made. The Reverb is awesome. So if you can find one used under 2K in decent condition better grab it, 'cause you'll never need another Fender amp, in my opinion.
