Just picked up this little guy...

Postby (Slackdaddy) » Tue Jun 05, 2018 2:02 pm

Hello All, I was traveling through Wichita on tour and bought this amp from a Guitar Center. I sent some photos to a friend of mine who is extremely knowledgeable about amps. He said that he thought it was made by Valco for Rickenbacker though he doubted it was original due to the transformer placement. Do any of you have any idea what may be going on with this amp? Your insights would be greatly appreciated!

Hello All, I thought I would let you all know that I was looking through that list of similar amps above and realized the 9th amp down listed as serial number CO002 from California is the amp I purchased. Looks like the fuse cap was changed and a tube was changed but I am certain it is the same amp. Crazy!!!
