    Wowzers! I still want one of those.

    What's the amp on its back behind it?

    A 1966 Fender Super Reverb. Not bad fitting two amps in the trunk of a BMW.

    Wow, the authentic "Sultans" amp...
    Not many of those in the wild. Looks great, congrats!

    Too cool indeed.
    That one and the brown Super would be my Holy Grail amps. Always want something I don't got...

    One of my favorite amps of all time. 6L6's in a low power format. Sounds like a Princeton on steroids. I've had two, should have kept one.
    I cant remember if those came with a logo on front or not, looks like that one had one at some time. I may have another, not sure, just used one on my Bassman build:

    Building is no problem. The appeal for me would be to own an original. If I were to do it all over, I would have collected the Brown/Blonde series. Even so, I have two of them.

    A good looking Bassman!

    I’ve got the vintage (flat brown) logo like yours, that was on the amp. I don’t believe that it was original, but if I cannot hide the three small screw holes, the logo may go back on the amp.

    Original transformers, caps etc., a ‘63 re-coned Jensen speaker currently inside. New filter caps and a three prong cord.

    The tolex, faceplate, chassis, and cab are near mint.

    A very warm sounding amp. I hit three chords using a Tele into the amp and I knew that I had to have it.

    Not sure what tubes are inside. A better look tomorrow.

    Yeah, i did a search, I dont think they came with one. You can often take a nail etc and pull the grillcloth fibers back into alignment eliminating the hole.

    I’ll definitely try that first. Who would think back in the day, adding a logo would impact value of an amp?
