This has been gone over by a tech with the capacitors and resistors replaced and any bad tubes. Speaker is original with numbers of 220034 10J11 V1373. It is working and loud on both inputs. Hum does get louder as the volume is turned up but I can’t hear it when the guitar is playing. You can see the parts that were replaced in the bags I show and the old parts are included. Also a new feed power wire has been put on the amp. I have no tremolo pedal for this one but tested it with the pedal from my other one and tremolo works good. Cosmetically this is the ugliest one I have but case is sound. Some of the covering needs glued back down and there are some stains/soiling and missing covering as well as a hole in the top of the cabinet. Gibson logo on the grill side is missing and there is some wear to the cloth grill. Last to note is that the cover for the tubed section is not original and you need to drill the 4 holes to mount it yourself. It is the correct size and fit and a tweed material but does not quite match the rest of the amp. Base is 20″ wide x 8 3/4″ deep. Height is 17 1/4 with the carrying handle folded down. Age is late 1950′s to early 1960′s. Lettering on the metal plate is worn. I’m not sure if the nobs are original or not–they could be replacements but certainly close to original if they are. I will be listing several of these. Tubes are 5751, lettering is worn off on the next 2 and then a 5Y3. I believe the speaker code dates this one to 1960.
