    A SF 1967 black-line drip-edge Vibrolux Reverb-Amp. Still has all the original blue caps, transformers, and Oxford Speakers. Newer Sprage Atoms and a three prong chord. On my way home so only an, “in the trunk” photo. More photos once I get it cleaned up.

    You always make the greatest scores! :cool: And now, for the most important question: "How does it sound?" :D Rear shots with the panels removed, as well as a gut shot or two are always a good thing! :whistling:
    Just Sayin'?

    This morning is the first time that I got a chance to try it with a couple of my guitars (Stratocaster and Les Paul). I had to spend 1/2 hour getting the reverb working again. Seems like ever time I move an old Fender amp, the reverb gives me issues. Some contact cleaner and swapping pans and all fixed. It sounds good now but I assume that’s it will sound even better after a trip to my tech for a checkup and tuneup as needed.

    I’ll be pulling the amp apart again tomorrow and I will try to get some gut shots. Internals appear to be mostly original. When I pulled apart in the store, I was mainly looking to see if the blue caps where still inside.

    Stock-"ish" looking Strat and Les Paul into Fender and Marshall amps! The only missing piece of this puzzle is a great stock-"ish" Telecaster! :p
    Ya Know I'm Right! :D

    One of my favorite amps yet more amp than I can justify.
    I see all that great stuff on furniture movers, what did you say the address is?
