Just picked this little guy up today - according to the serial # - A828728 - it's a 1976. I'm really pleased with how clean and original it seems to be (not bragging - I didn't have anything to do with that, I just got lucky enough to find it on Facebook) - looks like original tubes, speaker, tube chart (a little corner was ripped off, but it was still in the bottom of the cab!), cord, even that red Fender cord tag - never seen one of those before! Also, no rips or tears in the Tolex, and probably one of the cleanest faceplates I've ever seen on a used silverface. For the little bit that I got to use it, it sounded great with no noise or issues. Looking forward to dropping the chassis and checking out the guts, I'm hoping it's as clean and original under there as it is externally. Something weird that I noticed - it looks like there's electricians tape wrapped around the base of the tubes - what's up with that?! Some kind of cobbled-up tube retainer? Misguided noise suppressor? Never seen such a thing, it's coming off tomorrow. Also, since it has a factory three-prong cord - no death cap? Most of the tube amps that I've messed with were older two=prong style, thus having death caps and polarity switches. Can't wait to crank this little guy up!
