PHYSICAL CONDITION: Good- The physical condition of this amplifier has visible wear on the front of the unit. The knobs and switches have lightly oxidized pieces as well as a few areas with old cloudy metal stains. The knobs also have some chipped off broken pieces. It appears the speaker output jack and power cable have been replaced.

The outer tolex wrap has two minor lacerations but is otherwise intact. The handle is very sturdy and has some light oxidation. Overall condition, Good.

WORKING CONDITION: Very Good- Knobs are quiet and clean, while the amp is loud and vibey. Tremolo is working perfectly, and the Reverb is deep and lush. The Reverb tank on this amp is incredibly unique and sensitive to vibration. If the head is directly on top of a cab with the volume up high and the Reverb level is set past a certain point, the Reverb tends to feedback and get a little rumbly. However, there is plenty of useable range to turn the Reverb up without it feeding back. There is nothing wrong with the Reverb - that's just the nature of this design.This amp has a great vintage sound and it is super easy to dial in great tone. If you're a fan of these types of amps, you will instantly fall in love with this head.
