Hey all, this is my first post here. I recently purchased a '58 Tweed pro that's seen some better days. I registered on this forum because I learned a ton about the amp here, and everyone here seems quite knowledgeable about these old tweeds! So far, I've replaced all of the electrolytics, and 4 of the yellow astrons. Added a 3 prong power cord, disconnected the original selenium rectifier and replaced with a modern diode, installed a new handle, cleaned the pots etc etc. The original speaker is out getting reconed, but I have a '59 P15N in there for now. The amp sounds fantastic but isn't really my style, so I'm considering selling it. I'm having a hard time putting a value on the thing, since they don't seem to come up for sale very often. So, can you guys help me place a value on this old tweed? I have all of the original parts, and the tubes are all old USA tubes, maybe original to the amp. The freshly reconed speaker should be back in the amp in a couple of weeks and I'm going to decide then if I should keep it or sell it. I've attached a link to some quick pictures i snapped. I can take some other pics or gut shots if anyone thinks it will help. Much thanks in advance!

It would sell for somewhere around $2500-2750.
