Cool, vintage, and extremely rare (made for less than a year between ‘64 and ‘65). Magnatone from the Estey line (looked kind of like Samsonite luggage). Named the Imperial because some exec thought they couldn’t sell something with 13 as the model number, it is an approximately 45 watt combo (2 EL34 tubes and solid state rectifier) with a 15 inch Jensen ceramic speaker and four 3 inch tweeters. Has deep, drippy reverb and harmonic tube driven VIBRATO (not tremolo). Heavily gigged condition, lots of nicks and scratches, few tears in the grill cloth, and original brass face plate has gnarly patina and hard to read print. 7 inputs (probably for guitar, accordion, and microphone back in the day), two foot switch inputs (no foot switches included) and remote cab outputs, amp also features four-way tone select on channel 1 and more options for blending with channel 2. Original knobs were disintegrating so replaced with Marshall style knobs, but will send what remains of originals in a ziploc. Tube sockets cleaned and tightened, but has some noise floor — no capacitors look suspicious, but probably needs a once over by real tech.

Make me an offer!!! Other offer was a scam, I’m reasonable!
