This is one of the holiest of tweed tones. Zeke’s Guitars & Mercantile is happy to have this incredible-sounding rare Tweed Bandmaster and we’ll be sad to see it go… but what ya gonna do?

The lacquered tweed has been expertly replaced. The Jensens were re-coned by Orange County Speakers at some point. The output transformer has also been replaced (quite common with these because of the factory mismatched impedance). Basic maintenance and some caps, output jack, etc have been replaced as needed.
