Fyi...this is the exact amp I have and it's really good. Reasonably portable too!

What's up with the vibrato pedal jack? Looks like it may have already been converted to a preamp out...

And what's this about
It is designed for an 8 Ohm Load (the Dual Showman was designed for a 4 Ohm load, or 2 8 ohm speakers)

?? He may want to check the accuracy of that.

I kinda like the Plymouth badge!

I think it's similar to the Twin (4 ohm) vs Vibrosonic (8 ohm) (one speaker vs two):
From the Fender field Guid:
Size: Showman 15 Head: 1 x 15
Impedance: Head: 8 ohms ; Cabinet: 4 ohms
Model: JBL D-130F

That looks like a nice unit. I got mine for $575 in cleaner cond (but no drip edge or cool Fury logo), so I'm curious to see how high this will go.

Vibrato jack could simply be a replacement jack by a jack-ass tech or lame request for a 1/4" jack vs RCA3.
Reverb jacks are new, maybe tank too?
But the face is suspect. Looks like it may have taken a bad hit.

fwiw, I had a SF Deluxe Reverb that came to me with two single-button foot-switches. One with a 1/4" jack, and one with a home-made single RCA jack.
The one looked like the 1/4" foot-switch used on some other Fender amp (someone didn't have the correct footswitch, but said... "Yeah, I can make this work... lookit mey, Ah'm some kinda Janeious" :hail: ).
If I were seriously interested I would "ask the seller...".
On the other hand, let's hope it's a Pre=amp Tap! :cool:
