A really superb amplifier, I've had this for a number of years and it's been really excellent, with me it's been used mainly for recording, though I have gigged with it the odd time, but I'm an acoustic guitarist mainly so it's not really been getting the use it wants lately.
I have dated this one to 1973 and it really is a gem, It does clean like no other amp I've ever owned, the reverb is that classic fender spring reverb and the tremolo has a great sound to it too. The speakers are the originals and they sound amazing.
It's in great condition, some scratching on the face of it, the odd nick here and there but there is nothing major about the amp, the cloth is the original and in excellent condition, it has it's kick back legs, the foot switch is the original, all the knobs are original, it still has the cover over the spring reverb tank and having the original amp cover is a rare feature.
It really is an excellent example of this classic Fender amp, a real gem.
Collection from North Shields, it is such a heavy amp I don't want to ship it, I'm happy for someone to collect on your behalf though please note I would require full payment up front and I can't take responsibility for damage once it leaves.
martinrowe: Keith. I'm a bit concerned about the lack of contingency planning on this site e.g. has extra virtual alcohol been ordered for the Plucky Duck (it may get busy), and have extra virtual (cheese and onion) crisps been ordered?

ocarolan: Martin, - I have just ordered an endless supply of everything and to be absolutely certain I doubled the order. Remember to keep a virtual 2 metres away from staff and other punters though please. Thankyou!

ocarolan: But, in the real world, I tried a bit of panic buying myself today at Morrisons. Sadly, not a single bottle of Merlot to be had .... was this because Merlot is especially active against viruses or it was the 2 bottles for a tenner special offer?

martinrowe: What did you get instead?

ocarolan: Malbec. It has some of the same letters in it, but wasn't on special offer, so I had to break my usual spending limit and pay £7 a bottle.

geddarby: You could try some Cote du Rhône and Pinotage from Lidl. A little rough but smooth enough for my coarse palate. I need the wine to dull my frustration at every local live music event within a 50 mile radius having closed.
