Your thoughts on my approach to building a TUBE amp.

I have a wonderful hand-made McIntosh 1958 60watt tube mono-block. It is massive and very heavy, uses KT88 finals and 12AX7a predrivers. I also have an Altec Lansing 12AX7 (uses 2) preamp, with a solidstate power supply. I am considering marrying the two together in a low boy enclosure, with perhaps two Celestion 12"ers. Actual measurements from the amp far exceed mfgr. specs and the punch is unbelievable from this amp. Both power and audio output transformers alone are the size of a loaf of bread, no lie! Do you think this project would blow the vinyl off of many other factory amps, just shy of something like a Marshall? Could be an awesome creation!

1963 Stratocaster -- potential value??

I own a '63 Strat, with original parts, and markings, only the body was repainted by the dumb boob that owned it (and he hated the instrument) prior to me and so the factory sunburst finish is long gone. Presently it's an extremely close shade of the blue from that era. Neck and body internals are still orig. finish with dates and technician's sig. Pickguard is quite used looking but still the original greenish hued white guard. Vintage reissue knobs could be in order since this "boob" even painted the originals. Anyways, he hated the Strat so much he let it go for $100 in favor for a new Gibson L6S. It's in the original hardshel case but that's trashed to the point it's not roadworthy. Frets are in good shape for its age. Two music shops offered me $150 and $300 respectively. I know they are jilting me! I understand the value loss from the repainting and was informed that regardless how it's painted at this point, any further finish restoration is insignificant in raising its value. Any thoughts to its fair value? Those vintage pick-ups sure are silky smooth sounding, especially through the Fender Bandmaster pre-CBS amp/cabinet setup, of which this "boob" (me!) sold quite awhile back and regret it today!

Re: 1963 Stratocaster -- potential value??

1st, I'd verify that the finish is not correct. If indeed is not correct, then smile! you can have it repainted in whatever nitrocell. color you want without depreciating it anymore than it already is! How many people have a 63' strat in there favorite color? I wish I was in your shoe for that guitar. I had a 63 refined antique white all the way up the neck like a les paul. true it cut its value down , but if I could find that guitar today I would pay top dollar to get her back.

Re: 1963 Stratocaster -- potential value??

Dear Kurt.
I'm afraid you are being ripped off. Even if your Strat was a refin with no original electronics it is still worth a good 1500.00. If you can send me a picture and I can give you a good estimation from my local vintage dealer.

Fender Twin Reverb Tubes (Valves)

Any one give me the valve listing, especially the sequence they are fitted, for a 70's Twin Reverb with master volume. Valve equivalents would be useful e.g. as far as I am aware a 12AT7 = ECC81. What is the equivalent of an ECC83?

Re: 1967 FENDER MUSTANG

it could be worth any where from 600.00 to 2500.00 depending on how it sounds it sounds here like the body is in mint condition which would automatically put it in the 800-1200.oo dollar limit if the insides are in as good of condition as the out side then its worth any where up to 2500
