i picked up a 67 vibro champ a few months back. it was all original, had to replace a few caps. i got a new 3 prong power suppply cord. it was on my 'to do' list. it should have been the first thing i did when i got it. i got lit up pretty good. im an electrician so ive had my share of current pass through my body, but this one had a hell of a bite!@ i replaced the cord yesterday. id rahter have a non orginal amp then my heart stoping.

It shocked you just by touching the faceplate? Yikes. Bad juju.

Nice amp though, and you're still alive and posting. Thanks for the pics.
