This amp has been sitting in my dad's basement for 35 years.
The original cloth is long gone.
The grill cloth is some NOS cloth from somewhere.
The chord has been replaced with a period type chord and plug.
The original screws were lost. Have been replaced with new ones.
The original Gibson ''G'' was lost and replaced with the right one from a purchase on eBay.
There is some surface rust on the outside metal of the chassis that is clear in the photo's.
The original Jensen field coil speaker and transformer was shot. My dad is an old time electronics guy happened to have the one pictured and installed it. He said this one is actually a better fit but I don't remember how.
He would have replaced any bad or weak tubes as he has a basement full of them.
He may have slowly brought the capacitors back or replaced a bad one with a good NOS one or both.
I picked the amp up from him a month or two back and played it for over an hour and it sounded great.
I will try the amp out again tomorrow and update if necessary.
There is a small chip in the lower right hand corner of the veneer.
The handle has been replaced.
Due to the nature of the item, insurance is not optional, and sold as is. Check my feedback and bid with confidence.

I made the back for it out of an old television back and glued the other 2 blocks in place to have something to screw it into.
