    I think I would like to have it, thats what I think
    I have a late 67, without the rectifier tube, that sounds crazy good, but the black flag is the bees knees.
    Unless there are trannies changed, that is about what they sell for, from what I have seen.
    I would want the experts on here to give the gut shots a look first, though.
    Looks damn nice to me, other than the white newer logo.

    There's a couple gut shots in the Craigslist link...looks like the bias caps have been serviced, a couple random Iskras in there. Looks pretty good to me.

    Iron looks good but I'm no expert. Heaters look tight which strikes me as odd.

    Price seems on the money. A friend of mine sold a clean Black Flag for $6500...private sale, uncirculated amp.

    Not a 68, more like late 67, but that is splitting hairs
    It looks straight and original, just a replaced logo.
    Price is not far off - only you will know if that is right for you.
    I have a slightly earlier one with identical spec but block end aluminium chassis and white rear panel.

    About to put my mint 100% Orig with cover - 1966 JTM-45 MKIV Series 1 Bluesbreaker (Head) on the block. Purchased from the Original owner and with me (home use only) for over 6 yrs.

    What sort of money would it be worth ? Hard to get a guide as they never come up.
