Price drop!
I bought this in 2019 and it was about one year old. It was mint then, and it still looks mint. The previous owner changed (upgraded) a few things:
The cage was replaced with a Classic 62 (heavier gauge than the Classic 60).
The fuse was replaced with a Synergistic Research Black Quantum fuse.
Tube upgrades- 2 Mullard CV4003/M8136 (12AU7 Compatible) & 1 Mullard E188CC (7308 Compatible).
He spent about $600 on the tubes and fuse.

The Classic Sixty delivers 60 wpc into 8 or 4 ohms (although, I swear it seems like more). The Classic 60SE (Special Edition- this one is for sale) includes these upgrades over the standard Classic 60: four Tung-Sol KT120 tubes, CJ’s custom-designed Teflon capacitors in the power supply and main reservoir, Vishay resistors at key points, and Cardas binding posts.

This has seen very little use due to moving a few times and life getting in the way (I'm simplifying/downsizing). This amp delivers that classic CJ sound (and look) and is very easy to live with (biasing is a breeze). The manual, non-conductive bias tool, CJ hospital-grade power cord, and original box are included.

I prefer a local (NYC) sale, but if you want to pay shipping, I'll send it. Warning- it's pretty heavy for a small chassis.

I also have a PV10B preamp/phono for sale posted seperately; if you want both, I'll cut you a deal.
