     To add my opinion on this subject,I think Fender wasn't trying to copy 
the original 59 bassman,but to build a quality BASS amp that resembles the 
59.I don't think Fender had harp in mind when designing this amp.It may be a 
great harp amp,who knows?It wouldn't surprise me if it was.I'd like to see 
this same amp with the 4 -10 configuration,now that would grab the attention 
of harp players!...Dave
