    In 2012 I gave a guy $400 for this amp, I played it, I liked it, a lot, 400 was what I could afford, he took it.
    Neither of us knew what it really was, much less what it was worth.
    After much research, and @Wally 's help, we determined it was a 1966 Fender Princeton Reverb.
    I immediately had it serviced, recapped and retubed. $300 or so.
    Over the last 8 years of gigging it, it has been back to the tech's twice, another $250-300 each time, and more tubes. Last year I took out the old original Oxford and put in a Eminence Legend 1028K, very pleased with that mod.

    I love it. Really, I do.
