That's sexy. Take it to a tech, though. Get the cable switched to a grounded one, and get new caps.

Actually, my fiance's dad picked it up on a trash route. free! The best price! I friggin love this thing. I always liked the fender blues deluxe, but this thing blows them away! It'd be cool to have the old steel guitar that goes with it.

I know it. I dont know if i want to restore it, or leave the way it is. It has many years of road wear on it.

You might want to contact someone in the "vintage" bisuness, as you may be sitting on a valuable amplifier there. I'd call Gruhn Guitars and see what they have to say. They are good, knowledgeable people and they have an excellent reputation:

Yea, that's likely worth a decent bit of money to a collector. Probably not as much as later Tweed amps but still a fair amount. Serious score.

Depends on what kind of tubes it runs. I've never even seen one, much less a schem, so I wouldn't know. TCTubes is my source for NOS though.
