Hammond101's photos: '53 Fender Tweed Pro

This amp has suffered at least two catastrophic failures. The first was filter caps taking out who know what. It was made to run again with some very shoddy work. A poor ground on one of the power tubes looks like it started the chain reaction that took out the bias cap and resistor. The PT and OT were toast. Someone attempted a repair but installed an improper PT. No taps for rectifier tube fils.
