Gibson Hawk GA-25RVT

This amp has lots of rust and patina.  We recapped the power supply with F&T caps (33uF all around ) and tested the tubes.  We replaced the one weak reverb tube and fired it up.  The amp runs quiet and both speaker play nicely with no issues.  The tremolo works well but the reverb is weak even with the new tube and replaced a shorted RCA end on the reverb  return cable. There is some scratchiness in the the pots during rotation that we could not eliminate.  It is minimal but we must mention it.  This model is the 7591 tube finals (tests strong!!!)  amp with soid state rectifier.  I wish it looked as good as it sounds...See pics for condition.
