    My first thought was Music Ground, but I held back....and lo and behold....

    I don't know near enough to comment on them, other than they would still be nice replicas :)

    I did question the handle type for the era. They should have the square metal, or the
    silver hood scoop style, no?

    Kind, but there's plenty of guys on here who know more than me Kris, particularly about electronics.

    It sounds like the seller is selling for someone else.. good way to say "I didn't know it was a fake"

    It looked too good to be true but I had to look ! Sure enough. Thanks for sharing Pete :)

    Here is mine ~ I have added some internal pictures ;)

    From the scarce information that I have gathered the first BB's had 3 handles. I wasn't there when they were made so I could me mistaken. I have seen the short square and the silver hood scoop Vox style brackets throughout this early era.

    The main red flag for me is they are just way too clean as if they were made yesterday.

    Not in any way an expert, but I have seen a lot of cabs when researching my 64 4x12 cab....
    and the first tip off for me was the gold handles, when they should be square metal or chrome hood scoop for the period...
    especially with a block logo, and the white RS grill cloth.

    I've seen two correct amps with white vynair and a gold handle. They were made.

    Just noticed that the listing is gone. I just got this email from the seller :

    Hi Thomas,

    I appreciate you reaching out. I am not the owner, nor am I an "amp guy," but others have expressed concern about the authenticity as well. The owner is a personal friend of mine and a collector. The listing has been suspended.

    Thanks again,
    Nate

    I spoke to a friend who runs CME (who own Reverb). I suspect they suspended the listing.

    I have seen a lot of misrepresented stuff on Reverb. I recently saw a 57 strat that claimed to be all original but was clearly a refin for 24K, Several other strats that were not right also. Beware
