This amp is in good physical condition and perfect working condition, but does have a few signs of use. There are some scratches and dings in the tolex, as well as some rust on the hardware and scuffs on the faceplate. The grille is slightly warped at the edges, and a metal grille has been installed on the back. The original power cable has been replaced with a three prong cable, and the amp has recently had the filter caps changed. Internally, the amp seems to be mostly original, but as with all vintage amps, a visit to an amp tech of your choice is always a great idea. Overall, the amp works and sounds great. Non-original footswitch included.
