    Guys, I let the lust for tone get the better of me. I came across a 4103 from the original owner. The amp is in remarkable shape. Its all original. I played one in a music studio with a borrowed 1958 Gibson Les Paul Junior about 5 or 6 years ago. I was selling them a Les Paul Standard and we started noodling. I played that rig and my jaw dropped. We were playing loud but the amp left an impression on me.

    Came across the 4103 yesterday on Reverb. The guy said he hasn’t used the amp in years and its never left his house. Its working flawlessly like new a d its all original down to the tubes. It has the 80s era G12T-75s in it. I actually like that speaker. To me its closer to a G12-65 than a G12T-75. I got it for $1150 which i thought is a good price. I will do a review when it arrives.

    Anyone play one of these. I don’t see the 4103 often.

    The seller just contacted me and said he removed the tubes and packed them separately. Ive never had tubes damaged when left in socket during shipment and thats how I received all new amps. The only times Ive had tubes damaged, a couple times now, is when they are packed separately. To me its a dumb unforced error. There are many more potential points of failure when you remove the tubes. Every time they are handled they can be damaged. It pisses me off.

    im curious what experiences others have??

    I have had tubes themselves shipped wrapped in a box. No worries here.

    A JCM800 with 2x G12T75s is going to thump! One of my favorite speakers.

    Congrats and enjoy that beauty of an amp!

    That’s a beauty for sure! Also love the early T75s, I’ve got a couple vented back from ‘85 that sound incredible! Enjoy!
