Re: Very old Fender Deluxe, any advice?
Jim's advise is solid and I just wanted to mention that I've worked on one of these recently that was made in 1954 (just like me). I replaced the filters as they were starting to "bubble," but they still functioned (45 yr+ service life) and all of the original tubes were still good. To emphasize one of Joe's suggestions I'd carefully clean the jacks - with "crocus" cloth if necessary, as they sometimes develop "invisible" corrosion (or perhaps a layer of tobacco tar if the amp has led a bar life).
