    Most likely a Valco, Danelectro, Silvertone or similiar. Heathkit i built in 78' was no copy of any production amp. I think they engineered 95% in house of what they sold. The amp probably had a badge on the grill cloth. Seeing the size of that power transformer i also now doubt it was a Danelectro.

    This is an Airline model 62-9061 from 1967. Notice the position of the controls and jacks on the face plate, the components on the chassis and even the little slit vents in the chassis. It may not be an "Airline" but I'll bet it's a Valco made amp that is the same as this Airline model.

    EDIT: Which means g1 called it straight away

    See?
    lol on those pic titles Chuck, you know what they say about that broken clock.

    Now where on earth did you dig up those pics? I feel my google-fu withering.
    With the layout of the jacks & knobs being different I agree it's probably Valco.

    I've seen some Alamo amps that look similar.

    IIRC I just looked up an abbreviated version of the model number on the schematic you posted and then dug through the images. And I'm pretty sure Jazz has the all the google-fu locked up somewhere. He's usually the one to come through where all other fail with internet searches. It's actually astounding sometimes.

    Now when I put in 9061, or with the 62 prefix, it came right up. Before when I was using 9061 or with the gvc prefix it wouldn't give me anything. Maybe it's been learning in the meantime.

    If you think *oogle doesn't "know" that two members at the same website looked for the same or similar things and then adjusted it's result criteria then you're kidding yourself. Giant, info crunching computers are working right now to understand everything they can about any market demographic they can. Including our wee corner of the web. Though we might get lower priority

    Gore gets a bum rap. He never claimed to have invented the internet. WHat he did do is sponsor the legislation that created the internet.
