Retrofret Stock # 7125. National Model 75 Model Tube Amplifier, c. 1939, made in Chicago, serial # C8539, tweed fabric covering finish. Height is 17 1/2 in. (44.4 cm.), 15 5/8 in. (39.7 cm.) width, and 8 in. (20.3 cm.) deep. Somewhat worn and scruffy overall, but still quite solid and original. These pre-war National/Dobro amps are very well-designed and neatly made. This one still has its original National/Dobro branded field-coil speaker and a mix of original and recent (power) tubes; a 3-prong cord has been fitted for safety. There are several small holes drilled on the left-hand side of the control panel (one filled in) that don't seem to serve any purpose -- we can't tell what someone was thinking here! The handle is a heavier-duty replacement; there is some average wear and staining to the tweed covering, and the National logo plate on the face is somewhat scuffed up. Overall a funky, cool, pre-war amp with rip-roaring sound when cranked, great for either guitar or blues harp. Very Good + Condition.
