1960 Gretsch 6156 Playboy amp. Very good overall condition, although a little bit of rusting on the control panel. Sounds fantastic with no issues. Comes with a new foot-switch, 3 pin power cord and step down transformer. Fully serviced with a 3 month warranty. Original Transformers and pots date to 1960. Replaced Jenson concert speaker dates to 65.

17 Watts, 1-10 inch Jenson, six tube chassis, preamp: 3 X 12AX7, power: 2 X 6973, rectifier: 5Y3GT, single channel, tremolo, back control panel, three inputs, three knobs (tone, volume, intensity)

My tech has fitted a 3 pin power cord and removed the "death cap". During the service my tech noted the following replaced parts / changes: New electrolytic filter cap and cathode bypass cap. 1st valve socket changed. Mostly newer tubes, although the two 6973 are USA made by National so are either NOS or original to the amp.
