Fender Champ serial # A32016 (1971-72) Used for the solo of EVENING STAR (Fripp & Eno), the speaker was blown during this session (after all it was a very hot solo!) and later replaced by Tony Arnold of Arny's Shack Studio. One tube was also replaced, by Bev Strike of Don Strike's Instruments. It's in top condition. It was also RF's backstage and practice amp during KC/FF/SOATW tours.more
