I was just about to buy another SR when an out of state friend pointed me to a Craigslist ad in his area and I pounced. He did the transaction that day and shipped it, it arrived today. I don't think there could be a cleaner example out there. All original CTS speakers, even all original tubes including a few RCA 7025'sw and a smooth plate Telefunken. There are no dings or scratches of any kind in the tolex or in the shiny faceplate; not even the typical worm trails around the inputs. Has the original cover and the original foot-switch. I believe this amp has somewhere around 30 hours total playing time on it. I'll add the back story as I understand it at the bottom. I plugged it in once it arrived and there is a rattle somewhere in the speakers/cabinets I'll have to find; I plugged it into the chassis of a friends 67 Super that I recently repaired and it was still present and sounded the same. The guy who picked it up on the other end for me says he didn't notice a rattle so it's likely something that happened during shipping. It was quiet as a mouse initially, but developed a significant hum after about 30 minutes of playing with the Vol around 3; probably the 1st workout it received in 30 or 40 years. Rather than risk damage, i turned it off and readied it for a cap job; I think I'll install F&T's. The original foot- switch wouldn't turn the Vibrato on but a reissue switch did, I'll troubleshoot that. However the Vibrato was pretty weak once it did get on, even with the Intensity at 10; Nowhere near as sublime sounding as that in the 67. It was brighter sounding than the Jensen equip'd 67 sitting next to it. So I pull the chassis and see it's from the 6th week of 1968, 3 weeks after the Princeton Reverb I recently posted about and received a ton of great advice that helped me get dialed in and sounding fantastic. I also have 1st dibs on a excellent Bandmaster from the 5th week of that year I may have to take just build a collection of early '68, AB763 Drip Edge's. Back story: The guy I communicated with about the amp said it belonged to a lady from his church who needed to get rid of it as she prepares to move into an assisted living home. She bought it for her son new, but he gave up learning guitar after a few lessons and she put the cover on it ans stuck it in a closet. Occasionally her husband would pull it out and tinker, but he wasn't really a player and he passed years ago. She approached the guy I communicated to at church because he's in the band. He said he didn't have use for it since he only plays bass but offered to help her find a value and sell it. She was hoping to get a few hundred for it and was elated with my offer of $1,100 which was made before I understood how mint this one was; I only new it was cleaner than the local one I was about to buy for $1,200 and figured the $100 would equal out on shipping.
