    Looks great. If I was in the US, I'd be tempted.

    Interesting things there.
    I can see the new lamp, but why does it fit so poorly? Replaced plexi panel or reamed out in the past for another lamp. Clearly stated that both volume pots and filter caps replaced, that odd era when they ran out of 0.022uF and 0.1uF mustards. Most of V1a parts are new parts suggesting restored parts. I can see that the OT has been out/replaced at some time (wrong mounting washers and broken seals), which explains the the mismatch between chassis corrosion (quite heavy) vs the transformers (which look like correct type) but probably from a different amp.
    Switches are replaced and the filter cap clamp inside the chassis is too big for the capacitor (look at distorted clamp and missing clamp screw).
    If the tubes are in good order they are worth a bit!
    So price for amp is quite high (or if it is not means other amps are underpriced ;-)).

    Yes, I got one of those 'someone made an offer on an item you're watching' notifications from Reverb. Hopefully they negotiated a good price.
