'57 Fender Harvard restoration

This '57 Harvard belongs to an old friend. He bought it and a '56 TV Yellow Les Paul Special in '65 for under $200.00 and still has both today. I replaced the PT and generally restored the entire amp in 2002. Hey, I even replaced the rubber grommets that were used as shock absorbers for all the tube sockets.  Transformer and Sprague Atoms provided by David Allen. I got together with Fearless Freep and traded some NOS GE JAN 5751's for a set of tubes to go in the amp.

This was the inspiration for my Tweed Deluxe Reverb project.
