I've never tried a morgan vintage, but I don't think these will really compare at all. From what I know the morgan is a really big chamber with a small roll over baffle. It plays very dark.
The v16 has a med large chamber and and more of a baffle. For my ears the v16 is as bright as you can get and still be on the dark side. It might in fact not be on the dark side. I can't make up my mind. I don't have a high baffle piece to compare it too. These are very nice pieces though. I'm really enjoying playing mine. It'll probably prove to be too bright for me.
What I meant was that they retail for pretty much the same amount and they're both being presented as new "vintage" style. If they're being marketed to guys like me, it's working! I feel like I need one of them, even though I haven't tried either and I don't really need a new one.
