  1. Hello Mr. Galiano. I have a fender pro reverb amp, production #1, AA165, OE in pretty good condition. I bought it back in 1965 altho I always thought it was 1964. Anyway, what is the best site to go to and find out the value of this amp as I would like to sell it. Your comment is appreciated. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Patrick G. Smith
