This is a good example of a great amp. Whilst not cosmetically perfect, it's not bad considering the state some of its siblings are in. There is rust spotting on the control panel and some light stains on the tweed. But overall, it's in pretty good shape.

However, this amp has such an amazing tone that to quibble about clean the covering is missing the point. Whether you're looking for clean or break up, deep swelling tremolo or throaty roar it has it all going on. The speaker has to take some credit, the original Jensen P10R was great when it went in in 1960 and now it's been professionally re-coned, it's great again today. It's perfectly sized and selected for the amp. Just when the amp is breaking up and you think it hasn't got anything left it has just enough to push the speaker right to the edge. It's just magnificant. You just have to come and listen to it, you owe yourself that much.

Requires a step down transformer to run at UK voltages.
