I'd play the hell out of that V. I liked the Designer series from the '80's though...I am sure there are more than a few who look upon that defective dye’s fading properties as fondly as a mellowed yellow Gibson that was white back in the day, but I can’t stand it. It is such a dark brown, framed 90% of the time in black tolex, which is one of the worst clashes possible. Possibly one of the amps I’d like most for purchase consideration in trashed condition as I’d have no qualms ditching that awful headshell cab
To the aforementioned Gibson analogy, I think it went over as well as this “blueburst“ (silver corona w medium blue burst) that has since yellowed into the infamous greenburst/“puke-burst,” where the overwhelming majority have some appreciation for the factory color (when rarely seen), but few care for the yellowed transition.

Dude, that is truly a thing of fu$&ng beauty!I didn't used to like the brown basket weave cloth, as shown here on my 1968 4x12 Cab (which I've had since 1984) - but it's grown on me over time....I've still got this cab, but I use a 1960AV or my JVM205C for live work these days....
