Re: Vintage orange serial??

Cheers!

How well made are these amps compared to Hiwatts and other amps from that era?

I've read that they're not point to point handwited units but does this really matter? Will the presence of a pcb affect their collectability and value?

Thanks again!

Re: Vintage orange serial??

Thanks so much.

Would the pot codes provide an accurate year of production?

Cheers

Re: Vintage orange serial??

Thanks for that.

I spoke with the seller and he said that the paint is slightly raised where the discolouration is surrounding the model and serial number, which made me think it had been painted over.

Could it have been painted over in the factory?

What do you think it could ppssibly be?

Cheers!

Vintage orange serial??

Hi guys

I'm looking at purchasing a vintage or 120 and was wondering if anyone has seen a serial number that looks like it's been painted on top of the original chassis.

The fonts look right but orange paint is different.

Cheers
