The backstory is this belonged to the singer from my band, but it died on him during a gig a couple of years ago. Being a single dad, he's perpetually broke and never managed to scrape together the funds to fix it. Having just sold 3 guitars and my Rectoverb, I had a bit of spare cash still and figured if I bought it off him it helped him out. He liked the idea too and we agreed a price that means I'm not ripping him off and I still have enough headroom to break even or make a small profit once it's fixed. I'm also the 3rd member of the band to own it, the other guitarist bought it new and sold it on to our singer.
Needs a bit of a clean up too, but nothing some soapy water and a stiff brush won't sort. AFTER I've removed the chassis from the shell of course.
