    Posted a thread about my '67 Deluxe Reverb going south, now problem with a '65 Princeton Reverb. It is blowing the use immediately upon turning it on.

    Any ideas on this problem?

    no no no - don't turn it on anymore and take it to a tech. Do you really want to experiment? There could be so many things wrong, no offense to anyone here, but you can not get an accurate diagnosis from a distance and there is too much to lose.
