This is probably the coolest vintage guitar amp head you will ever find. A little bit of history on this guy...
This was originally a funky looking, Japanese made hi-fi stereo tube amp. I couldn't find any history on it, but I am pretty sure it's from Japan, probably from the late 60s/early 70s. It looked like it was built with a Japanese kit, similar to Heathkit products. ok so what's so cool about this? Well the cool part is that this stereo hifi amp we fully converted into point-to-point wired mono replicas of vintage guitar amplifiers: Fender Blackface Champ (AA764) and Gibson GT5T.
Now you can have lots of fun playing in stereo with these great sounding amps, but you can also play either amp separately. It was wired in such way that you can safely have just the one speaker plugged in one of the speaker outputs and when you do that, the other output gets connected to a 50W dumny load. The other thing is that you can connect you guitar to the right input (Champ side) and the guitar signal will be routed to both champ and gibson amps. As soon as you plug something in the left jack(GA5T), the head works as 2 independent mono amps.

Two controls on the left side are volume and tremolo speed for the GA5T.
The other controls are Bass, Treble and Volume for the Champ.
Most of the original components got replaced but the transformers and most tubes are all original. Japanese made tubes in addition to a USA Magnavox 6V6 on the champ side.
Output power:
GA5T approx. 3.5W (6BM8 tube)
Champ approx. 5W (6V6 tube)
Preamp tubes: 2x 12AX7
Rectifier: 6X4
