Fender Bandmaster Reverb - Repair/Restoration

I found this non-working 1971 Fender Bandmaster Reverb amp at a bargain price. The fuse and fuse holder were missing. I pulled the chassis and quickly noticed a few disconnected wires from the board. After re soldering the wires and putting in a fuse, the amp fired up. The bias was adjusted, hooked up to a speaker bottom. Sounds marvelous! I cleaned up some rusty hardware and it looks pretty nice.
