So I need a little help. I have just found an amp that I've wanted for a couple of years: a 1965 Silvertone 1484. It does not have the cabinet, so its just the head. The seller says it still plays but it needs caps changed. He's asking $350. I don't really have that much to spare. Maybe $200.
So what I need is you guys to arm me with some questions and whatnot to help me talk him down some. I know that a few years ago these amps in perfect condition went for about $200. But the value apparently skyrocketed with Dave Grohl and Jack White using the1485 model. But still, in perfect condition they are running for $600 to $800 WITH the cabinet. So any help would be appreciated.
(Btw, how much does it generally cost to change caps?)
