PHYSICAL CONDITION: Very Good - The amp shows moderate use and has various light nicks, scratches and chips here and there. Otherwise it is very clean and in very good condition for and from the 80's.

The road case is in good condition on the outside but poor condition inside as all of the foam is rotted and falling apart. Road case has "Carlos Rios Fragile" stenciled on it and a variety of touring stickers on it.

Note that we will wrap the amp in plastic it when shipping it inside the case. 

WORKING CONDITION: Excellent - A massive sounding tube combo, all channels and all controls are in excellent working condition. All I/O is in perfect shape as well. Overall working condition is excellent!
