I rescued this little bugger from a Guitar Center earlier this year--I was passing through Dayton, OH, and stopped to kill some time while I waited for an appointment.  Found this in the used room.  Plugged in... and OH MY GOD it had the best speaker I've ever heard in a Vibro Champ.  By FAR.  But the pots were noisy, the tubes were shot, and it definitely has some visible wear (including a cigarette burn on top).

So I brought it home and took it straight to the best amp techs in town, who recapped it, cleaned the pots, reflowed poor solder joints, and replaced various out-of spec resistors.  IT SOUNDS GLORIOUS and is totally gig-ready for the decades to come.

All original parts saved and included, along with the receipt of work done.

As far as I can tell, this amp (other than the tubes and parts replaced as described) is totally original.  Transformer codes are reasonably in range.  Speaker is period correct.  Paper tube chart shows August of 1967 build.

Sounds great, but I have too many amps, and too little time.
