Trying to make a bit of space for incoming gear! Looking at the tech sheet I have it was handbuilt in 2017 and is barely even played in.

I have swapped out any valves that were Chinese for quality ones, have replaced the original Chinese 5AR4 GZ34 rectifier valve with a US$80 Tung Sol ordered in from the States. I kept the Chinese one as a spare so will include this with the amp.
Bought a new brown leather handle for it that matched the colour of the grille, will include the original handle.
Swapped the control knobs for the period correct Fender ones - again I will include the beige chicken knobs that it came with.
Came with a red jewel light but will include a blue light which I bought separately.

* 12' Cannabis Rex speaker (USA made)
* NOS Russian 6V6's
* Valve-driven spring reverb
* Tremolo swapped out for a 'Middle' control, very useful. Acts almost as a gain control would
* Unlacquered tweed

No issues at all, in as new condition. Looking for somewhere around the $800 mark, feel free to make an offer if this tickles your balls. :)

FWIW, this was $850 new literally 6 months ago - I have probably played it for less than an hour all up so the speaker isn’t even broken in.

Couple of hundred spent on upgrading the tubes, knobs, new handle and a rather nice blue jewel light.

I get the feeling I'd need to come up with a little bit more cash... :?

Might help to do a wee demo on your iPhone. Not much on YouTube at all. Same goes for the TM listing (assuming you're doing one).

Just a thought.

Yeah could do, but I think I might just keep it as I do really like it. Moved it downstairs into our big front room so should be able to run it with a bit more volume now.

Besides, my GAS for a hollow body will likely pass at some point!

Excuse the playing and me thinking what to play next lol. Just had a quick plug in this afternoon...

Relic'd Strat straight into my MPC '65 Princeton Reverb, volume barely nudging 7 O'Clock. Reverb also around 7 O'Clock (yes, this amp has a ton of spring reverb on hand). No pedals, just the volume knob on the guitar. Hopefully it comes across that this is one loud, glassy-clean amp :crazy:

Any interest at $700?

Rung Post Haste for a quote, used Auckland as an example as I figured if it's going to go anywhere it will probably be there. They quoted me $84 as it will need 4 stickers and it's heavy - I'll do it for $750 shipped.
