Hello,<br /> I appreciate any help to identify the year my amp was built. I tried to figure it out by the EIA606, and that means 1966? But from reading online, I thought the Fender JBL speakers came after 1970?<br /> <br /> Thank you,<br /> Dominic

606 is the manufacturer identity code. The 802 code, as well as the Fender logo and master volume, would make it a 1978 most likely.

I also concur about 1978 even though I saw one transformer mfd. in 1977, I think.

Yep, an early 78' as it can't be older than its newest original part.

Ultra Linear Twin. 1978. Power tube balance pot and hum balance pot for pre-amp tubes. These amps sound great clean. I bet it's heavenly with those JBLs.

Got the same amp but I BELIEVE mine is a 79 and the jbls are E120's, not D's. Guess we know the cutoff date now! Mike.
