bought a cool old blackface Fender Deluxe (non-reverb model) today for $800. Pretty good price I thought. Plugged it in to test it out... sounded great. Got home and opened it up just to see what was inside... NOT good.... Someone did a "cap job" (and I use that term loosely) on this thing... TERRIBLE. They took two huge capacitors and used some sort of black goo to stick them to the left (from the back) side of the chassis... then they ran some flimsy wire from the caps to the board... probably like a 28 gauge. The cap can was disconnected and the ends of the wires cut, twisted together, and sealed with heat shrink tubing. They also put a couple of diodes across the socket of the rectifier tube. Someone has also crammed the wrong fuse type in there. why do people do this to such a great amp? I was gonna try and sell it to a friend or on ebay for profit but I can't sell it like this in good conscience. Looks like I have a project on my hands... The only part I dread is scraping out the black goo!
