Sounds great on rhythm or lead guitar too, even with my novice abilities. The more I play it, the more I want to keep it. I only hooked up an Xotic RC Booster and an EHX Cathedral pedal to it in the last few months with a cheap strat copy and I'm still in disbelief of the tones I was getting, I didn't want to stop playing.
I'm guessing whoever replaced the power cord forgot to put the plastic shroud on the fan but it doesn't affect it working properly and is included. I've misplaced the screws for the back over the years but have found some that do the job nicely.Has new knobs on the front. Tested everything but the external amp and external speaker jacks and seems to be working great. I've never had any issues with it so far. Hasn't been used much in the last 8-9 years but has been stored in my pet and smoke free home just mostly collecting dust as you can see from the pics. Sounds awesome although it looks rough. 6550 tubes glow nice and I think have plenty of life left. Has the appropriate 10 amp fuse which has never blown. Looks like the original schematic is tucked away inside the head. The power cord is old and worn and should probably be replaced.
