Originality: All parts appear to be original except for grounded power cord installed and replaced power transformer in 1972 (exact same transformer but made a few years later). The power tubes were likely replaced with RCAs at the same time as the power transformer. The output transformer and reverb transformer are original to the amp. 

Condition: Very good! There is very little corrosion on the metal parts and typical grill cloth darkening. 

Playability: Excellent! This amp performed beautifully during my 20 minute test. As with many vintage Fender amps that haven't been played in the past few decades, it's possible that it could require service after heavy use. Contact me for more info.
