OK, what is the general concensus on value here? I am looking at an all original, pristine, out of a time capsule, unmolested example of a '69 SF Vibrolux. It even has the original tubes in it with all paperwork including warranty paperwork.

What is this worth????

I think the tubes are the X factor....might be better to sell the vintage glass and sell the amp with new tubes.

Thanks for the input everyone. Please keep the comments coming. I'm not actually selling this thing, I'm considering buying it. I believe the guy is asking too much. Your comments confirm my thoughts. He is asking $1800....

I bought the exact same pristine type amp, although it was a '70, and had reverb too. It was outfitted with JBLs instead of Jensens (which is what I wanted, and I paid $1300 for it.
Politely offer what you are willing to pay, and be courteous if he declines, but let him know you're offer will stand, but you will be actively searching, and that they are out there and available, and with the economy we are in, your search won't last too long. Good luck!

Hey Zac, no, it wasn't hard. He understood he was asking too much (at least I thought)...He was a real nice guy to deal with too. Smooth deal.

Looking forward to seeing the pictures. Congrats on a fine amp. Hopefully it is a drip edge model, love those drip edge SF Fenders :)
