You going to show us the front panel??

But looks vaguely like a British guitar or home hi-fi mono integrated amp...

Either british (Radford, Eico) or a Canadian Rogers unit circa 1960. Is it set for 120V or 240V mains?

Unfortunately, the front panel is of no use - it has been painted matt black.!!!

I think it it a mono hifi amp but it is indeed in a guitar-like amp case IMHO non-original.

It is set for 240v.

I thought it was Rogers by the labels and the speaker outlet.

Hi Andy,
It's hard to say for sure. It looks close to original and is obviously European. It reminds me of a Leak in some ways, but I don't think it is. The transformers are different from anything I've seen Leak use.

We really need on older member from "across the pond" to chime in on this.

-Chris
