Made in Japan IIRC! Copying Fender circuits most of the time. Or am i mistaking for something else. If i do, then it might be german.  
 
Best regards.

satamax is right: japanese fender copies. i bought an (alleged) 50w elk head off ebay couple of years ago. i searched and could find no schematic for it. what little i could find was in japanese. quality is not that great and mine had already been hacked quite a bit. basically i used the chassis and trannies and converted mine into a super reverb clone. did salvage some oil/foil caps and some of the old square sealed-in-plastic mica caps.  
 
ciao...dr. blues
