D.P. wrote in to say: ”I had to know what was in the fender 5B1. So I bought one, model number 2528. Attached are a couple of pictures of the chassis. It is the exact same layout as your schematic and wiring diagram for the 5C1. The chassis is copper.”

    I have a 53 600 champ. Brought it in and checked out. Gonna put new caps. The transformer has been changed. Not the correct one. It is only bolted on one side. If we drill it out to secure it would drill into the caps (original caps). We can fix it when we wire in new caps. Does anyone know what is the correct transformer & where I can get one? Please email me at merch120@hotmail.com. Thanks.
