Hey Everyone,

I'm new to this forum and wondering if anyone can help me ID and date a very old amp I recently stumbled across ... I'm sure you must get this type of request all the time, but if anyone can offer any info at all, I'd really appreciate it!

Rickenbacher "Electro"

Serial # found on inside on "coil" - CS 5183
Serial # etched on back of speaker - V 3031
Tubes: Rectifier 5Y3 G, (2) 6V6 GT/G, Preamp 6SN7 GT
It has a metal grill ... no controls, one input

-Kevin

They call that one a "Lunchbox"

If you look at the pics in the link the one from 1934 looks like yours.
