    Just picked this up. Original transformers, Jensen speakers, and all the blue caps are there. New Filter caps and three prong plug.

    Just got it home and wiped it down. Have not plugged in any of my guitars yet but it sure sounded good in the store.

    Plus it looks good setting next to my 1965 Deluxe Reverb (last photo).

    It had a few small tolex scars on top but not too bad.

    I know these are neither a '59 Bassman nor a Tweed Deluxe, but these amps just are 'touchstone' for ALL that is cool about '60's Fenders.

    Plus musically ( IMO) you can play any style of music you are into with these amps!

    Beautiful!!
    ( plus you can keep them, pretty authentically alive forever with a good tech)

    I agree, this is my fourth Vibrolux, two SF and two BF amps. Just great sounding amps.

    I owned a ' huge/clean toned' '68 SF DR ( maybe from '97-2015- had to sell for $$ emergency...)

    and my buddies ( more collectors than players, anymore) own original BF and SF amps ( all the ' combos' ) and they ALL sound great to me!

    * happy now with a beatup but well maintained( good tech!) Blonde Blues Junior- such is life...

    Not sure of the speaker type, C10N’s or C10Q’s I need to look up the codes.

    Hoping someone here can help with ID’ing the speakers.

    I’ve got the amp apart now doing a thorough cleaning.

    I’m 95% sure that the speakers are C10N’s (Yea!).
