Hello, has anyone recently purchased a new AL80B and can they tell me if the faceplate is now black in color or is it still the grey lexan color? I know it's a trivial point, but i'm shopping for a good newer used one and the pictures on the internet can be misleading. Some look black and some look grey. I just want to make sure i'm looking at a newer model, and someone isn't trying to snow me with a 10 year old model...hi hi.

Hi Todd:

The newer ones are black. I have a couple of AL-80B's and I am a stickler for clean equipment and matching, what I did was ordered a new faceplate from Ameritron as one of the amps had a scuff on the faceplate. But it just shows you that an old amp can be made to look new.
