cord and also back 120 volt accessory plug? <br /> <br /> They still had the ground switch . Bassmans of the same year had the same.<br /> <br /> Was it just in case the outlet was not grounded or the white and hot were reversed?

You got it. It's in case you couldn't find a grounded receptacle and were forced to use an adapter into an ungrounded receptacle. <br /> <br /> Grounded receptacles became code around 1965 and in '68, there were lots of ungrounded still to be found. I still have a few ungrounded receptacle in my house.

Thanks amphead4 . I had a early 68 bandmaster that had the tall cab with 2 twelves and remember flipping that ground switch. Got it new . wish back then they had an OD pedal because these amps did not break up at all.
