      1968 – 1971 ~ $500 – $1,000 depending on condition.
      1972 – 1983 ~ $400 – $800 depending on condition.
      *** JBL speakers bring a premium.

      This is approximate and regional also. (higher in California & New York).
      Check Ebay fro completed listings and you can see what has sold for what amount.

    Just some other notes I’ve some across while trying to figure out what year mine was.  The “Push/Pull” knob on Master Volume was added in 74.  The Fender logo also lost the “tail” under it in 1974.  Hopefully this will help some other folks ID their SFTRs.

    For the person asking average prices, check eBay completed auctions for a good general number.  I just $300 worth of synth stuff for a 72 in great, original condition, but I think I got a good deal there.

    I’ve seen some with more jacksockets on the back, I don’t suppose anybody knows what they would be for?

    I own a ’72 and a ’73, both beautiful amps. Work great with Rhodes and Wurlitzer Pianos (my main use for it).
