This amp belonged to Tom Walker. It was one of two RD-112-50's that he used at Musicman for R&D work. (I believe they were used as "chassis-only" amplifiers)After selling Musicman to Ernie Ball Tom worked there as a consultant in hopes that Ernie would continue the amplifier line. He commissioned a guitar maker from Ernie Ball to construct two maple cabinets with the idea of giving the guitar maker one of the amps. This amp has the 12" EV speaker, two Philips 6l6gc tubes and the 12ax7 tube. Below it is a 1-12 celestion speaker enclosure I purchased at a local guitar dealer. I aquired this amp through Tom's widow after he passed away in 2003.
