    Posted this in the Bottom Line, but looking for any feedback I can get.

    A while back I took in a B15N 1x15 combo on trade -- Late 60s I think. But there are a few "issues" ;)

    1) Tolex was removed from the cab, not the head mounting board though.

    2) Grill was removed and then put back a little loosely

    3) Stock speaker was replaced with a recent Emmi (which sounds great!) although a blue, ceramic Utah was included that might be th eoriginal or might not, not sure if it works or needs a recone.

    4) Not sure of the electronic state although I can say this: It osunds louds and buttery and all the controls work. I believe the circuit is stock. The power cord needs to be replaced immediately as it is shorting.

    So here is my question, Assuming I fix the power cord, what is a fair asking price for this amp?

    Thanks-

    $400-$600 at best. Mint ones are hitting around $1200-$1500. Yours sounds like a lot of issue that affect value. Probably a great players amp.

    I love these amps. My advice: don't sell it if you don't have to.
