    Hey Lou, look around for an old Blues Deluxe. Better amp, in my opinion. I've carried one around for years as a back-up to my Marshall's.

    yes, spend like 60 bucks and you'd proly increase the value 100 bucks.

    I think I sold my Hot Rod Deluxe for $400 about a year ago. Intersting to have a Fender with EL34's. You could argue that the changes/mods increase the value, or decrease the value. The EL34's IMO detract from the value of a Fender, but the Greenbacks are an upgrade. Check eBay to see what the going value of the Deville is....and then knock of about 10-15%. I'd start negotiating from there.

    Good luck.
    The owner said he bought it as a backup for his Marshal 800 and did the mods to get it to sound more like his Marshal. He said it didn't quite get it.
    I was thinking about it but, I'll pass.

    Thanks

    The original speakers were replaced with Greenbacks.

    Here is the description.

    The power section was re-tubed and biased a few months ago. It now has Ruby EL-34ís instead of the 6L6ís that these normally come with. This was only used as a back up amp so there is less than 5 hours on these tubes. The speakers have also been replaced with a pair of Celestion greenbacks. Its very clean and has casters.


    What do you think it's worth?
