    Superb condition and sounds fantastic.

    Perfect, and I mean right down to the Tolex precisely matching the case of my 1966 6192. My dad bought it new in 1967 and played it till he passed in 2010.

    Time to plug in!

    Cheers,

    Larry

    Wow -- that is a GREAT find and catch! Looks gorgeous!

    In recent years I've been looking for something like that -- 5-10 watts with a 12" speaker. Enjoy!!

    Exactly

    I believe you responded to a post on this unit 3 years ago.
    It is magnificent and in exact same condition as my Country Club

    Cool man! I have a 6160 from about then and it's a killer amp. I can tell you tire shine is the perfect thing to clean those with!
