Death of Jess Oliver

Ampeg Godfather and developer Jess Oliver died on June 30th.  Somewhat surprised that this has not been reported on here yet.  A sad loss for all of us bass and guitar players alike.   RIP

Re: Death of Jess Oliver

I hadn't heard.   That is indeed a huge loss.  The B12 and B15 had circuits that ampeg used for almost a decade.  it would be hard to find an ampeg amp from 1960-1970 that didn't have at least some piece of jess' genius inside.

I know it's a bit late, but I've recently bought an ampeg v4 restored by Jess Oliver. RIP - such a genius, such a visionary, like Oren said, a sad loss for bass players.
