Can you help me, AMP!

The name says it all! Discuss Steve's studios, your studios and gear set-ups, amps and effects here. This is not for discussing guitars (Steve's or otherwise).

So I bought this amp head off craigslist for $100 and I can't seem to figure out what it is. I was thinking it was just a home-brew amp but it sounds legit. The guy who I bought it from had lil info on it but claimed it was '57. Which I don't care if he was telling the truth or not I feel like there's something special about it. Any information would be great!

looks like a home made/one off amp...
def not a mass produced amp

the WHOLE THING is not from 57- parts of the circuit board could be that old but overall i doubt it

seems like a garage project somewhere between the 80s and 2000's
the chasis is not new

if you took the board out of the chasis and took pics of it- someone could probably date it based on components/whats in it...

i wouldn't mess with it/open it up if you're happy and you like it
