13 hours in and already $1700 above market? Humm?

I would call this a recover with a new label and new handle based on the pics

Being someone who does own a 62 princeton...

I can accept that the tolex might still be that good. Mine is close. Although the tolex does have a sheen to it that makes me pause. I'd like to see a shot of the bottom and the staples. As stated, the tube chart is the second thing that makes me question the validity of the amp. The nuts on the faceplate input jacks appear to have a nice patina and the faceplate is incredibly nice. Still, even if this is what he says it is... $1800 tops. If he gets $2700 for his mine might just be the next one you see on eBay, lol.

I own a museum mint 6G3. The tolex and the grill cloth on this Princeton are suspicious. The handle is new... $3400... :roll:

That's a complete joke. I paid $800 a few years back for one in same condition. Pinkish hue to the tolex. Sold it prefer Tweeds.

I did take a look at mine and I have to say that my tube chart is almost as nice as that one and I do know that mine is original I'll try and post a pic in the Fender forum when I get a chance. Mine has remained in great condition becuase I'm basically just hoarding it. It always stays out of the light and usually in a protective case.

That price is incredible :shock:
