    Never seen one of these before.
    Looks a bit like a 1482 chassis, but the controls are up top, and it's a single ended 6V6.
    No affiliation.
    It's way over-priced IMO, even if it was in original condition, but pretty cool.

    Also note the owner says it has that "Delta blues sound!" Which I guess means it sounds like an acoustic parlor guitar.

    IIRC, I think it may be an extension for an organ or hi-fi. I saw one at a vintage guitar show a few years ago, but don't remember too much about it.

    Love the legs on that. Makes me wish I'd bought that short-lived Tubescreamer 5 watt amp a few years back.

    I've seen one of these before, actually, but it's been a few years. I don't think they're very common. Neat looking retro cab, but yeah.... not sure about the $ though. I can't believe someone paid anywhere near 1750 for the other one??? Wow... to each their own I suppose ;)

    No, it is still available for $1750.
    No one has bought it.

    I think it is over priced for what it is . It is really cool beyond words though ! I once saw a silver tone with a separate head and cab . The head went into the amp. Definitely had that 60's sound. This was at a music store and the asking price was $500 .
