This is vintage '63 Fender Showman amplifier head in blonde tolex.

This 85 watt amp was designed to meet the specifications of guitarist Dick Dale. It features two channels, one standard with volume bass and treble, and one vibrato (really tremolo) channel with volume, bass, treble, speed, and intensity. There is a master presence control for both channels. Each channel has two inputs. On the back are speaker and extension speaker outputs along with an RCA style jack for footswitch control of the tremolo.

This amp sounds like it is in need of some caps, right now the output is only noise. It appears that there has been some work done on this amp before, the tolex and hardware looks like it has been redone, also the power cable has been replaced with a modern three prong grounded cable. This doesn't have the piggy back brackets on the bottom of it.
