***Attention all buyers: I am unfamiliar with this item as I am selling for an estate of a man who did Ham radios and repair work. As far as we know, his equipment all worked at time of disassembling his room to put online. We may have made an error saying this item was unmodified. Here is a copy of a note from another member.

Hi. Nice amp! I have a passion for these old SC amps, and own several, including a 58B. I looked at the photos, and thought that I'd drop you a note to share my observations, because your sale claims that it is complete and unmodified. The photos show that the power cord has been replaced, the original speaker connections have been replaced with a selector switch and a 1/4" jack, a new hole was drilled into the side panel for the speaker jack, and the original input microphone jacks were replaced with 1/4" jacks. I also don't see the original cage cover, which is important. It appears to me that this amp has already been restored and converted to guitar use. I would suggest taking the bottom panel off and snapping an additional photo for the sale -- this will probably show that many internal components have been replaced to restore and convert it. This may increase the value to guitarists, but would definitely turn away collectors who want things to be original. Good Luck! :)
