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.
NewDave: Ouch. What hurt more, your pride or your legs?

robmc: I don't know Paul, it's all still pretty raw... Although, how about 'Nevermind the Buttocks'. Dave, legs and bum definitely hurt more than pride, although my pride still hurt!

scorpiodog: Yes, Rob. I can see you in a Sex Pistols tribute band. Or you could do a Tony Bennett and use "I scraped my arse and banned machismo".

NewDave: Or you could do the Sarah Brightman classic, I lost my arse to a starship trooper.

scorpiodog: What? Like "Underpants is theft"? Or "The means of defecation must be in the hands of the proletariat"? Oh, sorry, no. That's Skidmarx.

NewDave: Trump told people to drink bleach. How can he be at more than 40% in the polls in any state in the US? HE TOLD THEM TO DRINK BLEACH!!!

Martin: Yes, but what flavour? If it was maple syrup bleach, then I can see the attraction....

NewDave: I just read something on social media where a bloke seriously suggested that we invade France. Didn't Michael Howard threaten Spain with military action a few years ago? I think we might all have gone mad when no-one was watching.
