    Agree with oscillation. But, isn't a 1959 a non-Master amp? And if you're getting THAT sound out of it, either you play LOUD, you modded it, or you're slamming the front end/guitar is superhuman.

    Schematics!

    Okay, here is what I'm working with, and 2 possible scenarios. I am thinking #1 as the solution in case of an open wiper, as it will set me up for maximum negative voltage - in this case, about -55V...

    The Russian guess is probably good... I'd contact The Different Strummer from Vintage Guitar magazine; or whoever it is that covers offbeat weirdlings from strange countries.
