    Don't know why, but just felt compelled to post my pixs of a 1482 manual. I was glad when I found these and passing them on to anyone else who might be looking for such a thing:>)

    Is that the amp in a case?.. You have manuals or just the pics? Cause it sounds like you have more manuals.. o_O
     
  3. Cool! I have two. One came with the original shipping carton but the foot switch and manual weren't included.

    squierbilly----just the pictures--best I can do now! The amp looks like that picture attached--not a amp in case. I've got two 1482's as it was my first amp ever in the 60's. So I'm kind of nutty about them. I would love to have the real original manual and foot-switch but the foot-switch alone is outrageous $$$$.

    I played a Twin Twelve all through the 60's. They go for around $1000 now. But it was a great amp.

    Well the 1482 was my first experience with tube break up or natural tube distortion. I didn't know what to call
    it back then? We just thought it was the earmark of a cheap amp because clean was king back then and everyone wanted the clean fender sound.

    Jump forward 50 years and now everybody's digging early tube breakup. So 50 years later I'm buying the
    amp back that I discarded as junk back then.

    Plus part of the mods I did to one of my 1482's was to make it play cleaner and louder with more clean headroom which I accomplished to some degree. The price tag keeps going up on all these old Silvertone amps.
