condition: salvage
Very cool, very unique vintage all-tube amp.

Despite my research, I have been unable to determine what the original make and/or model of this amp.

I suspect it was a kit style project amp originally. I know the chassis/case has been painted, and I suspect it may have been modified at some point from its original design or specs.

Tubes are old, original USA glass and it has a very beefy transformer. The little bit that you can see inside through the extra tube hole shows original cloth wiring and vintage components.

Out of concern for safety and not damaging the amp, I have not (and will not) plugged it in or turned it on.

Buyer should assume that this amp is an excellent platform for a project, and will need safety upgrades and some component swaps at the very least to be in any way functional, and may need extensive repair or modification depending on your intended use.

I just know there's a screaming guitar or harmonica amp in there somewhere, but I lack the skills to take it to that place.

Cash only, no trades. Pick up in a public spot in Grandview. If you're reading this, I still have it.
