    Hey... uhh... I think I've seen that particular amp before. But maybe not. It could have been another one...

    I have a 49 Pro that has the original Jensen field coil speaker, it seems to break up earlier than an alnico.

    Just a quick update--I wired in a 3-prong, put the amp back together, sorted out a bad ground, and fired it up.
    The amp is very quiet considering its age, and tho I didn't want to lay into the 60 yr old Jensen too hard, it sounds great with a Tele. Controls are very interactive, just like a 5E3. Thinking about pulling the original Jensen and putting it away for posterity but it sure sounds good in there!
