1 Michiel 10 months ago Just picked up this 1962 Gretsch 6159 Bass Amp. (sorry for the poor quality pics) An interesting circuit with a tube rectifier, 2x6L6 output, bass input, guitar/accordion input with tremolo. Should complement my '63 Executive nicely, haha. In fact, I suspect it's just a 2x12" version of the executive with a bass-voiced second channel. It's in rough shape though. The baffle is coming loose (only 2 of the 6 screws, mounted without metal collars), the step-down is underpowered and wired with an extention socket. Obscure, funky looking non-original 'Heloton' speakers. But on the bright side, it's got the original knobs and the tolex and grille are in fairly good shape. Maybe all they need is a good cleanup. Does anyone have any tips on how to clean the control panel without rubbing off the print? Also I'm looking for high rez close ups of the Bass Amp logo. A colleague has access to a 3D printer. I'm going to try to make some repros for both this one and the Executive.
