It's been low on my list of projects but is now rising up a bit. I first heard this amp in 1964 and really loved the sound (and the girl of course which may bias my judgment here). I have one major non- musical project to finish and then gonna tackle the Baldwin. Here's an image (not mine).
I repaired a couple of them when he came through Charlotte a few years ago. His road manager, Pooty (now deceased) brought them in. Willie likes the way they interact with his nylon string guitars. He owns four of them.
Hopefully I won't need to replace the transistors.
Hopefully not. Some of them are Germanium, and difficult to source. Usually, the problems come from old electrolytic capacitors that they used for interstage coupling.
Those multi-color drawbar type switches can be problematic, too, but can be cleaned.
And I now know who to consult as I move forward. Fortunately I have the schematic diagram.
Reminds of something you might see in the "Jetsons." Very cool!
