    Thanks guys, I'm glad to have it in the collection. It sounds very nice.

    Any suggestions for the right speaker?

    I had a ‘63 that had been retro fitted with a tube rectifier. I initially thought it was earlier until i found a chassis date stamp and solid state rectifier circuit intact. If i had then the confidence to mess with amps like i do now i’d not have sold it despite its erratic and shocking behaviour!!!

    I played a 63 once that damn near blew my brains out. I might as well have been licking a light socket. Crazier, the guy was trying to sell it to me!
