My Mark IIC+ 100/60 signed by Randall Smith

Just want to share some pics about my newest aquisition. A Mark IIC+ 100/60.
First owner was Peter Green of Fleetwood-Mac. Another special thing is that its
signed by Mr.Smith himself and has no "+" above the power-cord.

I did the loop-test and its confirming to be a "+" !

Here are some pics, enjoy!

They are the tubes around which the C+ was designed. They are supposed to last something like 10,000 hours and sell for around 75-100 per tube when in good condition.

Now thats some very intersting info! I did not know about. Thanks guys.
As I said, the amp sounds still very clear and punchy. So there may still
some hours of tube-life left.

The pre-owner sent me also a certificate of authenticity with this amp.

( I made the adresses illegibly for protection of privacy )
