I'm not sure what the mods are. The description gets a lot of things wrong, it wasn't used in the Wall of Sound and it's not a Bassman.

Wish I had the cash for this or at least knew what was going on inside. The second channel is marked "send" and "return" while the first one has a label that says "instrument". It also has an extra pot. Master volume? Send volume? I wonder when the mods were done.

They are selling it short- this would be pre-Wall Of Sound, which is actually even cooler. By WOS-time and for a few years after, Phil used F2B preamps. This Showman probably was onstage the Sky River Fest in '68!!!
