would have to see a picture of the front and back to have any idea, even then it would be hard to narrow down an exact date. unless there is an inspection tag on the inside its hard to narrow down the date to any more than early 70's, late 70s or 90s reissue.

Well, I see now that I didn't include the serial #.

It's 604. Seems very low for a 90's reissue, which he thinks it is.

thanks for your thoughts on this,

Jon

does it have a pics only front panel, meaning there are only pictures above the knobs, not a picture and text describing what the knob is? Does the word Orange on the front panel look exactly like the one on the upper left of this website? or is the left leg of the A very thin? Does the back of the amp have a british flag sticker on the chassis? does it have a detachable power supply? Is the back panel wood with a metal vent or entirely metal? These are just a few questions that might lead to the date of that amp.

The serial numbers are all over the place with oranges so its very hard to tell the date just by that. if you answer the questions above or just post some pictures, someone can probably narrow it down for you.

A small collection of serial numbers.

I guess it will be a nineties reissue.
