If you really really like the JCM800 tone, and are willing to buy an attenuator or just crank it to get that famous tone, go for it.
It looks rather cool and worn.

" Q:Hi There, I have an original 59 Les Paul I was thinking of putting single coils in so it can sound just like a Stratocaster. Also, I was thinking of drilling holes all over the body to lighten it up so it will sound just like a Strat. Do you think it will affect the value? Thanks, Rudy "

LOLLLLLLLLLLL it took me a while to realise that it was a flame.

wow, that thing looks killer, like some kind of crazy old microwave oven. Hi feedback looks pretty good, only 1 neg from a buyer, and that buyer had horrible negatives on his/her account, so I doubt it was his fault. The pics also look pretty good, it looks like it has the stuff he's claiming as far as parts. I would probably go for it, as long as it doesn't go for too much, it could be a great sounding amp.

I wouldn't buy it unless you're an electronics geek and would know how to fix it if something went wrong

dude if there's a way you could get the faceplate that says sound city on it, you've got yourself quite a jem.

Sound City amps contributed to the creation of Hiwatt. THey also sound very killer, i don't know if this one will but they are no longer made, went out several decades ago.
Ibanez -> Peavey -> Eardrums

Apparently I'm on some list of people to listen to..?

It looks like this guy has ripped out the guts from a JCM800 and kept only the enclosure and transformers from the Sound City
