How would you define "massive demand"? Once again my friend, it's all in the volume. (if you'll pardon the pun)Ah, the age old question . . .
The age old answer: you cannot find it anywhere.
Why freakin Traynor does not start selling old logos and grill cloth I will never know. There is such a massive demand for these things they could make a killing.
Good post Bill,How would you define "massive demand"? Once again my friend, it's all in the volume. (if you'll pardon the pun)
A custom logo or grill cloth pattern can only be ordered in quantity. Knowing Yorkville as I do if they couldn't justify buying by the thousands or by the kilometre they wouldn't bother. To order a 100 or so logos to satisfy the hobby restoration market would not seem to be good business. The potential profit even with a huge markup would seem like micenuts to Yorkville.
To make a short story long, in the 80's Pete finally bailed.
When Pete left it seems Yorkville just totally abandoned its tube amp line and any parts left in inventory.
So my point is that there are practical reasons why companies don't support their legacy products. If we want a logo it might be more successful to talk to people like Antique Radio. They've got repros of Fender, Marshall and other major names for faceplates and stuff. They're based on lower volume stuff and might see an opportunity to add old Traynor logos or cloth to the mix.
