I told them it was a deluxe and they said no it isnt in a "you are an idiot" kind of way, so I said fine and paid and when I had it back in my hands I held up the tube chart for them and showed them.
Of course you didn't need to look at the tube chart, just the speaker -- it was 12".
And that speaker was a mid 60's Vox silver bell speaker in it which is worth about 2x what the original Jensen was worth, so more win. I was going to sell the Vox and buy a Jensen and pocket the profit, but the Vox is a better speaker and I like how they sound together.
