Fillmore 50 Combo - MYSTERY SCREW

Post by Twang Banger » Mon Mar 08, 2021 11:25 am

I was looking into the back of my Fillmore 50 Combo and spotted the silver screw hanging down to the right of the 6L6s. It was in kind of crooked, like it was cross threaded.

Is this normal?

Many Mesa amps (most?) have this screw and this question comes up regularly. That Sweetwater link should be a sticky.
