    Seller claims it’s a 50s Fender Woody. To me it looks like a Pro Jr in a relic aftermarket pine cab? I’m no expert though. Seller claims it had a two prong cord he replaced with 3.

    If it IS a fake.....kudos to the guy who did it! He put in so much effort to achieve that, he almost deserves whatever he's trying to charge.

    If he would be willing to give you a serial number that would help you track it. It definitely looks old and has a “champ” layout.

    It's not a 50s Woody. Without going into too much detail woody cabs look like this:

    What you have is a Fender Tweed era Champ that has had the tweed ripped off the cabinet and then they painted varnish or some other clear coat on the cab.

    Agreed it looks like a 55-63 tweed champ without the tweed... I'd run to get it for $400.

    Looks pretty authentic to me, as a narrow panel Champ without the tweed on it. I'd hurry.

    If I was a champ in Hawaii... I'd take off my tweed too!

    Missed out on it. I guess he sold it while I was at work even though I was the first to message him about it. Oh well.
