    Does anyone know what I should expect to get out of one of these in good condition? Thanks. Matt

    Depends on a lot of things. Any work done like a cap job, mods, new speakers, new tubes, general cosmetics?

    I honestly don't know...never opened it up...plays like a dream. I can tell by the labelling that it has matched groove tubes. I just know that it was a one owner and sounds like a dream. Speakers are stock.

    Then it hasn't had a cap job. The fact that it's untouched is a plus because it can't have been hacked. It's a small minus because it needs a cap job (all amps over 25 years old do) which may be offset by the originality.

    It's difficult to keep track of values as they change constantly. Check completed Ebay auctions. Not likely over $1000 or under $650.

    Just asking; Why is it called 'BF' here? when SF's started around '67.

    Yup, a 72 is a SF. It may have "blackfaced" cosmetics or circuit, but it's still a SF.

    Blackfaced cosmetics, but he said it was untouched. Sounds like a typo.

    If an untouched & clean 72 SF, I'd say somewhere between $1,000 and $1,200...maybe a bit more.

    I for one would *love* and *adore* a silverface Vibrolux Reverb. Just don't have the $1,200 or so to pick one up!

    I bought my '72 SFVR for around $1300 a couple of years ago, and the only thing that had been touched on it were the filter caps. Original speakers, old stock black plate RCA 6L6s and preamp tubes. Very clean cosmetically. Even had the footswitch.
