All that is original is the chassis, PT and OT and several of the original capacitors and resistors.
I built a new cabinet, old piece of grill cloth and some old drip edge plus a speaker.
A friend worked on it but just messed things up more. I later found someone who could do the job and do a good job on the wiring.

'69 Princeton Reverb refurbished.

But seriously, that is very nice the exact thing I gas for these days. A friend has one like that, probably same year and refurbed as well. When I come to town I often sit in with his band and he sets me up with that amp, a 1970 Tele and a tube screamer. I feel right at home.

Wow. Looks like a used-but-properly-cared-for Princeton. No evidence of aftermarket shenanigans at all.

Outstanding work!

Nice work, well done!

I had a '69 Vibrolux Reverb that was the fraternal twin of your PR. Man, that was a great amp. I only sold it because it was too darn loud for any possible application I had for it.

I built a finger jointed cabinet from old pine and covered it with some old tolex that I had removed from another old cabinet. I think it came out pretty good. The sound is the best part.

Here's an after shot.
At the time....I couldn't find a silverface front panel, so I went with a black one.
I think your restoration was a tad simpler.
cheers

PR after
