Not sure what I've got here

I bought an Earth head and cabinet (2x15, I think) from a friend's brother out of a barn in Central Virginia in 1996. Played it steadily from 1999-2003, and now it is in storage. Was discussing it the other day with a friend I might loan it to, but can't for the life of me remember a model number on it. Can anyone hazard a guess based on an admittedly mediocre picture?

Nice...

What you have there is either a G1000 or a B1000 Earth head. I'm guessing G1000 (if it has vibrato and reverb, it is for sure). The G and B1000s are the guitar and bass versions Earth's early-70s tube heads.

Very cool amp. Tell your friend to be careful with it.

Thanks man. It must be the

Thanks man. It must be the G-1000. Wish I had the original pedal switch for it. I use a Sunn switch with it that has continually challenged RCA connects. Thinking I should loan him a different amp... although we've got a baby coming and could use the space.
