Vintage Fender amp schematic MOTHERLODE 50s 70s repair docs 76 manual BIN
Here you have it, a Fender HARVARD amp, model 5F10. This is straight from an estate sale. I removed the back panel to better photograph the inside, and that's it. The leather handle did tear when I first picked it up unfortunately, but you can get replacements right here on ebay for $20. I did a fair amount of research on the net, and this cabinet looks a LOT better than many of them I've seen photos of. It's got some re-ring stains on the sides, don't know what from. There's a small amount of fraying at the seams. But otherwise it's really in great shape. I do not see any damage to the speaker cone. My understanding from my research is that you aficianados would rather have an unmolested amp, and if necessary get the work done by a tech you trust. So, I have NOT plugged it in. So, I cannot guarantee that it works, but it's my understanding that this is the preferred way to do it.
I talked a bit with the family whose sale it was, and their folks did some local singing and guitar, and the kids were musical themselves. So it comes from a family background. It's getting really, really rare to find amps like this coming out of estates. Seems like more and more people find out what they're worth and won't just give them away. I got lucky here, and even at my starting price I'd be making money, but I know it's worth far more than that. But I like to let as many bid as possible, and that's why I'm starting it at that price. It will be VERY WELL packaged, and insured. It will ship FEDEX, and there will be a signature required, so if possible it would be a good idea to have it delivered to a business address or some address you're at most of the business day. Weight 21.4 lbs. (before packaging)
GENERAL NOTE: I buy all my stuff at estate sales, and am not an expert on most of it. So please feel free to ask any questions, or for more photos.
Items ship from zip code 68512 in the U.S. Shipping costs quoted are to the continental states only, anywhere else will be more. Payment is expected within 10 days. Otherwise I reserve the right to file for non-paying bidder,and re-list the item.
PAYMENT: I accept paypal, but am certainly open to other options.
SHIPPING-USPS: Please note that I am NOT responsible for the time the post office takes to deliver the package. Tracking is included with all packages EXCEPT first class and media mail. I provide tracking numbers on request.
SHIPPING-"OTHER": If the shipping is 'Other' then it is Fedex. Fedex does NOT ship to PO boxes, so please provide a "real" address.
SHIPPING-COMBINED: I always do my best to combine multiple wins to save on shipping. I make full use of USPS flat rate boxes wherever possible, and will only charge you for one box if I can fit multiple wins in the same box. If you win more than one auction I will send you a new quote with new shipping.
Also, I am happy to hold items for you if you plan on buying many items from me over time, in order to combine their shipping. This is at my discretion, for buyers with dodgy or low feedback. Contact me for details.
FOREIGN BIDDERS: For the customs paperwork hassle, Canadians are charged an extra $3. All other foreign buyers are charged an extra $5. I am happy to send you a quote during the auction if you want to know how much it will cost. Items are declared as "Other: ebay". I will NOT mark them as 'gift'. I DO NOT under-declare item value on the invoice. Do not ask.
SHIPPING - PACKING: I start packing items the next day after the auction ends. I pack as much as I can in a day, but ebay is NOT my job. It will usually take me two days to pack and ship up to 40 items. If you have won a large and/or bulky item, then I will save it till later, after I have sent the stuff that is easier to pack. This is usually not later than Friday. It depends on whether I have the right size box, and appropriate padding material. So if you've won a large item, please have patience. I take packaging seriously. I know how fragile cast iron is. I use newspaper for most items, and packing peanuts only for very light items. Heavy items will be packaged using solid styrofoam blocks, as well as small boxes stuffed with newspaper. It is very rare for the items I pack to be broken, as my feedback should attest. I do not notify the winner of when a package is shipped, unless they ask me to, because I just don't have time to notify everyone, and 95% of people never ask.
LOCAL PICKUP: Local pickup is great! Especially on those large items. I can be flexible with scheduling - just ask!
