    Yep, everything else is vintage, except for the Pignose. A new skin that looks vintage on a fairly new body that hit the market in 1972.

    Seb is just jealous because it is too heavy for him to wear. The genesis is not Russian, but, as far as back as I can go, is German submarine crew. The KBG had an entirely different style.

    When you wear this coat, it is important to take on the presence and personality of Jurgen Prochnow.
    Nothing matters much and most things don't matter at all.

    So it's not just me you're a board curmudgeon too?

    Although I do agree, I could never pull that jacket off, way too much of a statement.

    Word: I am more into the Fender tweeds. I have a 1956 tweed Bassman, a 1957 tweed Fender Champ, a tweed Pignose, an Orangecrush (British practice amp), and an old Gibson amp--maybe 1949? Probably a few more around somewhere. PC.
    I was in a band called Orange Overdrive, named after our bass player's amp. We weren't very good.

    Sorry for taking the thread "off-topic" but man them some sweet amps you mention PC. Me, personally, I've always considered Tweed covered amps "too pretty for work". You know what gigs are like, or used to be like, bumping and grinding, loading and un-loading, spilled beer, the smell of stale cigs. Phew... I love your taste in amps but they'd sit home, like my 1968 Fender Jazz and my '68 Gibson Recording Bass, too dear to risk distruction!

    Worf,

    With the soundcloud link, after you hit it, and loads there should be a list (recorded files) of his songs. Sometimes you have to click on a file several times and then wait for it to load and then make sure the play button is selected.

    You're right, of course, Peacoat. I was just using hyperbole. As it happens I used to own a dark green jacket just like this that was a German police jacket. I looked silly and got in too many fights thanks to the look. As a weedy bean pole I quickly got rid of it. Our friend here looks far better that I ever did.
