This is a RARE 1960 VINTAGE SUPRO bass/guitar/accordion amp with Tremolo output. Amp is in excellent original condition except for two or three very small cigarette burns on top. Two original Special Design Jensen 12" speakers...original two prong cord. Top amp has four 12AX7 tubes, bottom amp has two 1027 & one 5U4 tubes. ( 35 watts) Has a great sound and everything is in good working order. Comes with a non original Tremolo foot switch and amp cover. To identify year of manufacture i had to refer to speaker code 220 0 47 ( Jensen,1960,47th week) & pot codes 137 60 23 ( Mfg.Co, 1960,23rd week. This has to be one of the earliest 1688 TN amps. Also, this is the only vintage Supro amps I've seen that has the name plate in the top center. PLEASE, only serious inquiries and cash only NO trades. $ 1600 ca. ( $1200 USD) or reasonable offer. Thanks.
