It's 50 years old Ro Jun 16, Jun 17, 6. Thanks for the help everyone. I've asked for some more pictures of the speakers but he isn't comfortable opening the amp up for chassis pics, so he said I can take a look when I come to see it.
I'm still pretty nervous though. I've never spent this much on gear, and I'm no amp tech either so I don't want to make a mistake and find that I got the year wrong Yeast Lor Jun 17, Jun 17, 7.

For example, most 64 AC30s should have grey speakers-still the Celestion Blue speakers just not painted blue yet.
It would be easy for him to just use a flashlight and get you the codes off the speaker frames.

Hopefully, it hasn't already been sold Yeast Lor Jun 19, Jun 22, Well, I have a couple pictures now.
I don't know if they will be of any use, but I'll post them here anyway, as I don't really know how to tell what is original or if transformers are woden etc Apparently, the rectifier has been changed to solid state at some point, but the base for the tube is still present.
Would it be easy to revert this back to the original set-up? I should mention that seller is selling for a friend, and so doesn't know the amp's history.
Is it worth asking about the blurred writing in the second picture on the choke? I'm still going to ask about date codes on the speakers.

The externals would suggest it, but I'm guessing it's not worth the same money if it's a VSL or later Yeast Lor Jun 23, It looks like it could be right. Certainly the construction method isn't one of the late versions. I'd still like to see the speakers better, I'm pretty sure that the amp should have the grey frame, 15w Celestions.
Jun 24, Well, I'm not sure what to do now. The seller has grown tired of me asking questions and says he can't see any date codes on the speakers and doesn't know what the writing on the choke says.
Dec 30, Dating an ac30 from its serial number is difficult as the amps were made by several different companies. There is a place called North Coast Music on the net that make replacement VOX combo/head/speaker cabinets (they are licensed to do this) complete with everything, handles, logo, grill cloth, tolex (including fawn) etc. Jun 24, Hi, I'm fairly new here but I've been trying to buy a vintage vox ac30 for a while now.
