    My friend has a black face 50 watt Fender Bassman head that works, and is fairly clean. He thinks it was made in the late '60s. Anyone got any information they could share on this amp?

    It's worth what folks will pay. Check eBay (both current and completed auctions) to find the real-world value.

    He should keep it. It's a damn good guitar amp. I recently worked with a guy who used one for bass when his amp died. It sounded as good as anything I've heard.

    If it's a "silver face' (chromed control panel, name in blick letters in blue) it's worth $200-350 depending on current condition.

    If it's a "black face" (back control panel, name in white script) it's worth another $50-100.
