ITYM 94. I don't think (but I could be wrong) that the Nashville didn't come along til late in the 80s.
In 84, the Session 500 was still the new kid on the block.

From:
THIRTY-ONE YEARS OF “STAINLESS STEEL” AMPLIFICATION
By Mike Brown
"In the early 1980’s, we introduced a new line of amplifiers called the City Series. In this series, we offered two steel amps, i.e.; the Vegas 400 and Nashville 400. The Nashville 400 has been our most popular model to date and was in production for eighteen years. Up until 1985 we used a 1502-4 ohm Black Widow speaker in this version. It was later changed to the “revoiced” 1501-4 ohm version."

Huh. That's weird. I was POSITIVE it was later than that. So the Nashville was concurrent with the 500; I'd remembered it as a successor.

The prefix is OA not 4A my mistake. It dates to 1990. Thanks for the input.

Lane, I brought my first new steel amp, Session 500 in the spring of 1982 in Midland, Tx. Great Amp but you had to have a wrecker truck to moved it for you. J.R.
