by Frank Stroupe ***WARNING-There are voltages inside of a tube guitar amp that can KILL you.

Though, hopefully no one will bid on those that are that high. But, they are still available at killer prices, if for no other reason, there are many of them still available..a silverfaced amp was passed over in the 80's and 90's by someone that HAD to have a tweed or blackfaced one.From the one picture with the ad, I could see the drip edge and black lines, and new she was probably a 1967.When I saw the amp in person, I confirmed that it was indeed a ’67 from the serial number, AB763 tube chart, and blackface footswitch.In contrast to every other aspect of the silkscreen printing, they just don’t seem “right”.They are non-symmetrical both vertically as well as horizontally and are extremely thin compared to all other lines.
