Fresh out of my collection is an original 1959 Fender Bassman.  April 1959 to be exact. I rescued this amp in the early 90's from a small music shop in College Park, Maryland. It sat hidden in a small corner of the store. It was once painted black and then poorly regrilled and recovered. Without reservation I purchased the amp and ran it over to my amp tech not far away. He worked for Jay Montrose. There was more than one indication of who the amp may have onced belonged to. If your familiar with the area then you most likely know the talent that was associated there. 

The amp has been professionaly recovered with the correct laquered tweed, many years ago and has aged nicely. I placed it next to an all original 57 champ for comparison. The original grill was gone during the paint it black era, so a replacement was installed. The Jensen's were also long gone and a set of Weber alnicos now reside. The chassis remains mostly all original, however there have been several of the electrolytic Astrons that have been replaced with spragues. They were carefully fitted back into the original paper sleeve.  You can see Cesar Diaz once worked on the amp. Appears to be in May of 1984. Lupe's signature still resides in the bottom of the chassis. All original transformers and pots. Still has the original power cord minus the end. The amp sounds great and has a new set of phillips power tubes as well as a Mullard GZ34. Most of my amps have been or are being sold. I've held onto this one a long time for obvious reasons. Unfortunately Reverb only allows 25 photos. I have many more. Ask if you need something specific.  I'm listing this as a local sale for now, until I can find appropriate shipping boxes.
