Well to say I was not one of the lucky ones that were able to just unscrew the locking ****** speaker nuts on this amp would be the understatment of my life! It took me 3 hours last night to remove everything (Amp chassie, Speaker baffle, Grill Cloth staples, and crap Speaker/Locking nuts, microphonic power tube) So I got this amp in trade and I hated the sound of the original speaker. Talk about farting overdrive sounds. Plus the cab had a buzzing that I couldn't fix with tightening screws, so I went ahead and took it apart. Here are some picks of what I took off and that was only have of what I took off the amp to get the speaker out. Anyway put it all back together, and the amp sounds amazing, and no weird buzz. Crisp Fender cleans and smooth crunch.
