That's great that you were able to go from a re-issue to a true vintage amp. I had a Fender Princeton loaded to me for an extensive amount of time many years ago, and loved it. Offered to buy it from my friend, but alas, no. Decades later I got to try out a Fender Re-issue Princeton, and wasn't impressed at all. Build quality did not seem good at all. Ended up getting a Laney Lionheart for the same price, way better construction (British made, not Chinese) and it sounds awesome. Some of the re-issue amps are so pricey, they end up being in the same range as quality boutique amps which I think are properly both superior in construction and sound quality.
