So, i have an amp coming soon, a Silvertone 1484. The head dosen't have a back, and i've heard all sorts of stories of charge being stored after the amp is off. Would touching the chassis cause me some bother, or is it just the caps and such? If so, would covering the back part of the chassis help?
The caps (can) contain charge after turning the amp off, not the chassis so you'll be fine.
