Both Ohm & Voltage selector sockets look new, definitely the Voltage is. Nothing soldered to the Voltage Selector :shock:

It looks like tidy 50w smallpox, probably a great players plexi.

Some questions, minor, but worth asking if you happen to be a buyer thinking in terms of investment vs playing (oh and price).

I think the front panel has been recovered with new levant (note the shadows of two holes to the left and right of the logo (old screw holes?)
All the knobs are new, probably good quality german ones, but still new
Lamp is modern Marshall replacement (very common, most of my amps have too :( ).
Both of the selectors are new (a guy in France is making them and selling on Ebay) nice but expensive repros - again good quality. The mounting screws and brass nuts are US type - not 2BA as original and a much bigger worry is where are the PT primary wires? The loom on a 1202-118 is soldered under the wraps so exits direct from the PT - not just soldered lugs - is it cut or just bundled, but if just bundled why not solder to the selector - maybe cut short and will not reach?? A US internal tag strip would have been possible to salvage it but of course there is a big hole in the back where the expensive but redundant selector is now.......questions!
The output tube sockets have been replaced and Welwyn screen resistors added to help modern tubes survive.
The use of Iskras, the Murata cap and other features (like the serial number!) also suggest it is a '68 not a '67 and therefore would have brown selectors.

If it goes for a decent price well worth addressing those minor points.
All bleeding stops.......eventually.
