I've been wanting to take a big group photo of all my hardwood amps for a while and finally got my 15" hardwood combo this week. My wife was available to keep the kids busy so it seemed like good timing! Here is the result!

Image

Working from top to bottom, left to right we have an Imbuia Mark III Compact Combo (Black/No Stripe DRG with 105PT and EVM-12L), Imbuia Mark IIC+ "Big Brother" Wide Combo (DG with EVM-15L), Imbuia Mark III Medium Head (Blue Stripe DRG), Tasmanian Blackwood Lone Star Special (1x12" with MC-90), Imbuia Dual Rectifier Trem-o-Verb Combo (2x12" with Vintage 30s), Imbuia Mark III+ Short Head (Black/No Stripe DRG, 105PT, IIC+/III+ Upgrade and Pentode/Triode Switch), Padauk Half-Back Cabinet (EVM-12L), Imbuia Thiele Cabinet (EVM-12L).

I also got some others and a few with my old guitars.

That's an awesome collection:) That's pretty incredible that you have a hardwood 15'' C+ combo. I don't think I've even seen a pic of one before.

Technically it started it's life as a Mark III, I was just having some fun with the long IIC+ chassis. I haven't seen one either, although there is a mention of one on the old Boogie files website... all the images are missing from the wayback machine though. :)

Beautiful amps you've got there. Which gets the most playing time?

Nice guitars too!

Thanks! I've been playing the Lonestar more than anything because it's been at my office, but now that I have that 15" hardwood I'm excited to get some time with it soon.

Thanks all! It was satisfying getting this all together to photograph so I'm glad you enjoyed as well. I got a few lucky scores locally and always have my eye out for more hardwood gear.

I found another Hardwood Thiele and picked it up last week. Very nice figure, but this thing has been well loved. Structurally it's in good shape but it has a ton of dents and dings. I'm still kicking myself for selling the matching pair I found a while back, but now at least I have have two again.
