    The idea ran across my brain that "What if I want another Blistertone amp as a backup in case something happens to the one I've got now?" So I sent an email to PRS to ask if they would still make one upon request. The answer was no...

    For some reason I was under the impression they had some "Custom Amp Design" department or something which accepted special orders. Did they used to but have since stopped doing that? Or maybe I just did too much LDS in the 60's.

    Three... in the $1200 to 1500 area. Good deal for a great head.

    Yeah, but one is seriously ugly (so ugly that I wouldn't want to be seen with it), one had the same serial number as a another one previously on Reverb, another one the story keeps changing about all the stuff that has been done to it and what the amp has been through while they try to portray that it is new old stock.

    Oh, completely unrelated to this thread... (hijacking my own thread)
    One thing that I've learned about myself is that if someone new to the forum on their very first poost starts running their mouth about how much they don't like their PRS guitar or they post what looks like a professional sales pitch for guitars from another brand, I will typically fire a shot across the bow. I know I'm supposed to be nice and not say anything rude but.... well most of us know that PRS makes the best guitars on the planet and I'm not usually one to suffer fools. Call it a character flaw.

    Trekkies would recognize that as a humorous quote from the movie "Star Trek IV". :p
