Up for grabs is my RedPlate BluesMachine66. It was hand built in Phoenix, AZ using point to point and turret board wiring (see last photo). There are no PCBs in RedPlate amps. It only has the finest components including Mercury Magnetics transformers which means there is very little background noise even with higher gain settings. This particular version is running KT-66 tubes but can be biased to run KT88 or 6L6GC power tubes. The power level is 50 watts (fixed bias mode) or 40 watts (cathode biased mode). The cathode biased mode even allows the use of 6V6 power tubes to drop the overall power down to ~18watts.

The mode switch allows you to go from 2 flavors of Blackface to 2 flavors of Brownface up to 2 flavors of Tweed, all increasing the gain and adjusting the EQ as you turn up the mode. There are many options for adjusting the tone on this amp. I recommend watching the linked YouTube video and also downloading the BluesMachine manual from the RedPlate website.

The included footswitch allows you to get many different tones with the Tweed, Drive and Boost footswitches.

The combos are currently selling new for $3,895 on the RedPlate web site. This specific amp even has the Celestion G12 Alnico Cream speaker which is a high end speaker (retails for $320 new).

It has been kept in my smoke free home studio and is essentially in mint condition as you can see in the photos but it is 10 years old so I am going to say the condition is excellent. Everything functions and sounds like new. I am including a Tuki padded cover but it is a bit big for this amp so it isn't a snug fit but will help protect the amp as needed. The footswitch does have a few scratches on it. I also noticed a few dog hairs on the photos (courtesy of our Labrador).
