Wanting info

Post by The Defiant Jase » Tue Jun 04, 2019 4:24 am

Hey guys,

Im new here and I was just wondering if anyone could send me through some basic information (date of manufacture, series, pre-500? anything at all really) on an amp that I purchased second hand some 20 odd years ago?

It is a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier (2 channel) with an early serial number that I haven't seen in this format posted anywhere online - there is no hyphen between the R and the 0. The serial reads: R0377

looking forward to your replies!

Have you pulled the chassis to look at the internals? The date of manufacture and other information may be written inside.

That should be a Rev C from what I can tell. Here's a listing from one that sold:

That had serial number in format: R0217
Guitars: Hamers, Heritages, G&L Legacies, EBMM Steve Morse, Carvin Bolt, Fender Tele
Amps: DC-5 1x12, Maverick 2x12, Stiletto ACE 1x12, Trem-O-Verb 2x12

Hi there,
The 2 channel was made for 8 years so it would have been made close to the start, the website from Mesa is attached if that helps at all.
