    I sold this amp in 1999 and just got it back in a trade. It was recapped prior to that sale 22 years ago. The cab is a local build with what may well be the original baffleboard??? There seems to have been some damage to the sides of the front part of the baffleboard that my friend Bob did not try to correct...hence the gaps on the sides. The transformers are original. The speaker is a wonderful Fender OEM Oxford Alnico 8EV from 1965 which was reconed before going into this amp. All print gone from the chassis panel. The logo is original. That is a line out Jack in the lower back panel. It’s tubes are a very old 5Y3 and NOS Phillips 6V6 and 12AX7. Magnificent sound8ng amp, imho. The tone pot puts it in a class above the Champs I have had.
    My bad....I thought I mentioned that this is a 5D2 amp from 1954.

    It does whatever a player can get it to do, ime. It is not...as some might think...a one trick pony. and...it has probably already found its next owner. A young pro is mesmerized by it. He has never owned an amp like this and is drawn to the sonics. He plays jazz, country, Western swing, rock...whatever. Perfect amp for him to expand his experience.
