Up for sale here is this vintage Precision Electronics Model G tube amplifier, from the late 1950s or early 1960s. It uses 6 tubes, 4 of which are included and are untested but seem to work fine. It uses 2 6L6 output tubes (NOT INCLUDED) , one 6SQ7 tube (RCA 1960), two 6SC7 tubes (RCA), and one 5U4GB rectifier (RCA). I did not replace any of the tubes. I brought this up on a Variac, and it plays well and sounds good. However, this is still a very old tube amplifier with original parts, so it will NEED a rebuild before it is put into regular use. You will need to replace the capacitors, add a pair of 6L6GC tubes, etc. It has taps for 3.2 ohm (I think) 4-ohm, 8-ohm, 16-ohm, 250 ohm, and 500 ohm outputs. I took a look underneath and this appears to be fairly original, and the build quality looks really good, but some of the soldering does not look great, so my guess is someone replaced the power cord or something like that. There are two wires that are unattached, but I don’t know why–this does play without them. This has a nice-sized output transformer, which is marked G 30 549340, which means it was made by Midwest Coil & Transformer, probably in 1953. The power transformer is gigantic as well, and is marked 26R44. This would probably be pretty easy to convert into a guitar amplifier, and I’m sure it would do amazing things. Cosmetic condition is decent, but this has a fair amount of wear and rust. It has no top or bottom cover–what you see is what you get. You will need to rebuild it for safety. Please note that the 6L6 tubes are NOT included, though the other tubes are there. Please see my pictures for details. If you have any questions, please ask. I have a number of other tube items, collectibles, and vintage electronics listed–feel free to take a look!
