The black tolex exterior is in near perfect condition, with one minor tear on the bottom back side. The silver/blue grill cloth retains perfect structural integrity along with no visible fading. Quite simply, this amp is near perfect. It works perfectly, and sounds amazing. There is not a single issue with this amp, and it is worthy of the finest amp collection.
The original power tubes are branded with Ampeg logos and have date codes consistent with a ’70 production. The rectifier and preamp tubes are original as well. The amp includes the original dolly, which is in comparable perfect cosmetic condition as the amp itself.
